Listen to an audio clip

Now go left from his head and you will feel Ginger's back it's slightly curved where he's lying down curled up in his basket. Feel all over his body. I think Ginger feels quite fat; he's obviously a very happy and contented cat. If you stroke him, he'll purr for you (sound of purring). Now, can you find the square hole in the middle of Ginger's basket again? Yes? Well feel just inside this hole and there's something long and rounded, going up to the right. Can you guess what it is? It's the end of Ginger's tail.
