Purr-fect Love

‘AS we are on the subject of failing relationships, we can also report that Abi Titmuss has moved out of John Leslie’s £1.5m home and back into her modest nurse’s flat.

Abi and her parasite

That’s the word in the Mail, which hears from a friend that the couple are merely taking a breather to assess their relationship.

“They have had a series of bust-ups,” the friend says, “but this week they each felt they needed some space to sort out their lives.”

But could help be at hand for our warring couples from the humble cat?

A report in the Mail suggests that more than a fifth of Brits are affected by a microscopic parasite which is passed on by the pets and can cause personality changes.

“It can make women behave like ‘sex kittens’ and men like ‘alley cats’,” the paper says.

“Women who are affected spend more on clothes and are constantly rated as more attractive, an international study has shown.

“They are more confident and less willing to conform to accepted moral standards.”

By contrast male cat-owners become more anti-social, suspicious and jealous, more aggressive, scruffier and less attractive to women.

All of which explains why James Bond baddie Ernst Blofeld never had a girlfriend.’
