    In academic writing it would be more grammatically correct to use "because"

    Earlier I got my apostrophes and commas mixed up I have corrected this ridiculous error now as it was keeping me awake, as you can tell by the time of this post. :embarrassed:

    Why fewer instead of less?

    Fewer refers to a multiple whereas less is used for a single entity or could stand on its own - as in record less!

    Of course, my number two will correct me if I'm wrong ;)

    My cats have a favourite spot to perch and play cat chess with the neighbourhood feline population, atop the gatepost. There, they're their own masters, and command the best views of the street. Game over!

    See what I did their they're there? ;)

    I would rejoice but for your comma use, which I query.

    My inner pedant concurs with your assessment of my punctuation, and therefore I have issued a correction...:thankyou:
