winnie - 49 is not Westminster, I wasted a lot of time on that road. Think Oxbridge.

Thanks bazza for your warning re 49. My thinking is:-
tom = name for a big bell
is attached to pet = cat
Indicating its sex .
I think I must have been thinking of the Great Tom at Westminster Palace prior to a new one called Big Ben.
Not sure of your Oxbridge clue. ( I thought I had finished too !!!)

I was thinking BB, did not know of Westminster Great Tom - but there is one in Oxford. If we are both happy with 28 we are finished.
