YES! As if I need an excuse to share some photos of my pussy (sorry, I lied). We’re a bit barmy about our cats in the noisy café household. Our two were acquired when they were quite tiny, only about 5 weeks old. They were borne to a feral farm cat, who abandoned one (the grey and white one) and so we had him first. Then I decided that Freddie needed some pussy cat company so we chose one of his siblings as they were all in need of rescuing, Alf (so named because he’s ‘alf black and ‘alf white). We later found out that the remaining kitties were eaten by a dog……

We’re definitely ‘cat people’ if you know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs too, but cats are such wondrous creatures – clever, independent, charismatic, aloof, playful….(much like myself). Our two are characters, each quite different. Freddie is huge, with bear like paws and fluffy too. He is territorial and a bit of a bruiser when he’s threatened by another puss on his patch. Alfie (also known as Alf Skitten) is the antagonistic younger brother, who is sooooo mischievous and likes dressing up (trust me, he does love it). He once won ‘Cutest Pet’ competition in our local newspaper for the photo set as the featured image. Of course he won, it was a no brainer. He even has his own Facebook page if you’re interested.

So here they are: our treasured cats!
