British Prime Minister Winston Churchill owned a number of cats, including Nelson, who accompanied him to wartime cabinet meetings, and Jock, who was so beloved that Churchill’s will requires that a Marmalade cat named Jock must live at his estate at all times. Jock V is the current cat incumbent.
I have a very soft spot for marmalade cats and have belonged to at least 5 marmalade cats in my life so far. My all time favourite was Sparky, a huge, gentle cat with a big round face and enormous paws, it’s been over 6 years since he died and I still miss my “beautiful, beautiful” boy.
Whilst my lovely old girl Ms Patchouli is not ginger she does have a lot of ginger colouring in her fur.
Last week we happened to drive past this cute little kitten on our way back from walking the dogs so I hopped out of the car and managed to get these sweet images of this friendly little boy.
We live in a conservancy with lots of bird life so I suppose that’s why this young man boy wears a bell, my brother Sean thinks belling a cat defeats the object, “It makes them more stealthy!” he says.
All my love
