Purrrfect Strangers?

Meet some of the gang.
(L - R Stripes, PG, Lugosi, Beauty & Tiggy Mummy)

As some of you know, I spend some of my spare time looking after stray cats. These particular ones are living within the grounds of one of the hotels on Kos. Obviously, during the summer months they get lots and lots of food and fuss from the customers. Once things shut down, however, that's it. They either have to hunt or starve.

So, one of the things my wife and I do is drive round to various spots and feed the cats. It's not gourmet cuisine, but it's enough to keep them alive until next summer.

I chose this particular family of cats, because some of you already know one of them.

Do you remember Pepe?
(The one who was repeatedly shot in the face and all over his body - 14 times in all - by brain-dead morons?)

Well, on Christmas Day, he'll have been with us for a year.
And although he can't see properly, this is what he looks like now.

And this is his son - Lugosi (After Bela Lugosi, as his fangs stick out a lot) - and his grandson - Paintbrush (Look at the tip of his tail on another photo)

Lugosi and Paintbrush are still at the hotel. 
As are their friends.


Feeding Time

Anyhow, these are just a few of the 60 odd cats my wife and I feed every day. And though we don't do a great deal, hopefully it'll see them through another winter.

So there you go. They're quite a good audience when it comes to trying out my stories, so if they like the stuff they hear, in the book it goes.

Until the next time...
