How can you resist this little fella?


You can’t right, well if that is the case then you don’t take ‘selfies’ with your Cat!

Apparently there is a growing trend in the UK, and probably everywhere else for that matter, of giving away Black Cats because, and wait for this you won’t believe it either! Black Cats don’t look good in selfies – selfies are the self taken pictures taken by people who are preoccupied with err… themselves, which are then sent to friends, who haven’t asked for them by mobile phones and tablets – Steve Jobs you have a lot to answer for!

It has been reported by no less an august organisation than the RSPCA that 70 per cent of more than 1,000 cats in their care in Britain are Black or Black and White and the same can be said for any number of animal sanctuaries around the UK.


First this Cat pleads with any nice, non-selfie taking people to adopt a Black or Black and White Cat as soon as you can, and secondly please stop anyone you see taking a picture with a ‘cuter’ Cat or at least get them to ask the Cat’s permission first.

Lastly it was mentioned, and I only include this tidbit in passing, that Tabby and White or Tabby Cats are the most photogenic. In an unrelated matter, have you seen the cover of my book?

Workers at a British supermarket recently opened a sealed crate from Malaysia and just couldn’t believe what was inside. From the warm darkness a pair of shining eyes looked up at them and they heard a little squeak.

The eyes and the squeak belonged to a brave little kitten who had survived a journey of several thousand miles for over a month by licking condensation off the walls of the crate.

It goes without saying that the kitten was tired, hungry and very thin, but when the staff of the supermarket picked her up and gave her a hug she started to purr and meow for food. This lucky kitten couldn’t have turned up, or is that have been unpacked in a better place, and the supermarket workers were soon offering small amounts of the best cat food and some water.

The sensible supermarkets workers also called in the RSPCA – which is the UK version of the ASPCA – who checked her over and declared that although she was hungry she was healthy, probably about 8 weeks old and after staying in quarantine for six months will be given a new home in the UK. Of course offers to home the well travelled kitten have been pouring in.

It is thought that the kitten most likely crawled into the crate when it was awaiting loading in the port of Penang. The crate with the kitten inside would have been first placed inside a container and sealed so that it can’t be tampered with or of course be used by people wanting to illegally enter the UK, then the container would have been loaded into the hold of the ship for the three week voyage to the UK.

At Southampton the container would have been loaded onto a lorry to complete the final part of its journey and as they say – you know the rest – there was quite a surprise for the people unpacking one particular crate.

Isn’t it nice to have a happy ending for a change?
