Thanks heavens my human did die in while she toured Parliment. Imagine the scandal if she had been arrested too. She did, however, leave her suit of armour at home.

Five days with no bomits is good!

Those are some very weird laws. But I am very glad to know that if I go to London, it will be safe for me to ride in a cab. Since there will not be any rabid dogs or corpses in there. I was a little bit worried about that.

Those are very interesting laws. I am a little curious as to how the no dying in Parliament is enforced, though.
