Maybe the cat did away with the groundhog, and it's hanging around expecting payment.

If it turns up with a baseball bat and a group of his mates, don't be surprised

You're assuming the cat is English.

That's the best combination. You can enjoy the sun without worrying about being all sweaty and uncomfortable. More enjoyable in October than July, I'll grant you.
