I work 12 -13 hour shifts too and have had cats for the past 19 years. Cats sleep a lot and mine have a cat flap so they're not too dependent on me being at home. When I do have a stretch at home...

There's probably more Irish people (or 2nd generation Irish) living in the UK than in Ireland itself. I'm one of those and I want one of the Irish contestants to win - but not because they're Irish...
