Kat and dogs…

After meeting Reservoir Dogs&#39 star Michael Madsen last week, Mainland PR Kat Milne has apparently been acting (even more) strangely.

Aside from wearing a dodgy black suit and tie to work every day (not too much change there), Kat was overheard asking a stroppy journalist: “Are you going to bark all day, little doggy or are you gonna bite?”

The Diary, for one, refuses to be intimidated (it went in last week&#39s issue, all right Kat?).
