Over the last few days, I have acquired a few guest photographs from kind people. However, after I received this picture of Katie’s cat Bella watching the tennis from the opening day of Wimbledon, I just had to use it today.
To Jo, Susie and Helen – thank you for your photographs and they will appear in the next few days. I appreciate you thinking of me and my pointless feline activities.
These glossy, gorgeous and affectionate sisters are Lily and Bella. Their mum is my friend Helen’s rescue Lilac Point, Luna. The girls live on the Isle of Wight and it sounds as if they lead a wonderful life. Apparently they rule the roost and are complete madams; when they want something, they just yell and someone jumps immediately to do their bidding. Lily and Bella’s home must be in the countryside, because they live on a quiet dead-end road and there is plenty of wildlife and a river close by. However, this is not a perfect cat haven; their owner Katie tells me that their cat flap privileges have been withdrawn since they brought a rat into the house (!)
History does not tell if they killed it first …
