|Calli, Rappy and Jet|
CATS ON TUESDAY
|Calli was just 4 months old|
in this photo, the black cat
below was Tosh, her admirer,
he died of cancer last year.
|Rappy, now nearly 8, thought the bird table an excellent place to sunbathe.|
|Jet is also nearly 8, he came to us 4 years ago as a starving cat, he and Rappy are best buddies, and we believe Rappy told him that he would find a good home with us.|
|Calli is now our matriarch, she is twelve years old, she was very ill recently but we loved her back to health.|
|Rappy is Mommy's boy, and also her supervisor. He has to tell her when it's time for bed, otherwise she would be on that computer all night long..!|
|Jet loves to lie and sleep on his back, |
he might look fierce here, but he was
actually just having a big yawn.
When we first came back to England from the USA back in October 1985,we brought a Persian kitten with us, Caruso started out on the 3000 mile journey from California to Washington DC as a 3 month old, he enjoyed riding in the Cadillac, and only one motel turned us away in the 6 weeks we took to make the journey. Caruso is no longer with us, but we have some beautiful memories of our 'singing Caruso' -
|Caruso always loved to smell flowers,|
and he especially loved Jasmine.
|Caruso enjoyed the attention he got |
from other passengers on the
|Whenever we stopped at Rest Stops, Caruso |
would take off up the nearest tree, with
me flying along behind, so I had to buy a
length of rope to attach to his lead.
|When Caruso finally came home, his |
favourite toy was the snake draught
excluder, he killed it regularly.
|I love this photo of him peering through the open staircase.|
