A PiBeta Production
You are the Housemaster of a boarding house in a UK independent school in the late 1950s. The boys are subject to corporal punishment for any misdemeanours with either gymshoe or cane. The dormitories are unheated and the boys are required to sleep with the windows open unless there is driving rain or snow.

It is early January and very cold. Five of the six boys in the dormitory have managed to equip themselves with makeshift hot water bottles (pop bottles filled under the hot tap in the washroom). The sixth boy, David Wallis, instead has cajoled the House cat, Tiddles, into his bed and is cuddling up to it.
You enter the dormitory to find that the window is closed and order the boy nearest to the window, who happens to be David, to get out of bed to open it. Once out of the bed, you notice movement under the bedclothes as the cat, your cat, moves further under the covers.
How do you react?
