I needed something for the hallway instead of dumping on the floor or draping over the stair bannister. Another little quirk of the house is that the light switch is at the far end of the hall so it works like this:
- Open the front door
- Fumble to the end of the hall
- Kick the cat
- Turn on the torch on your phone
- Turn on the hall light
- Apologise to the cat
Now there is a light just inside the front door, I get noticeably fewer dirty looks from my cat.
