3 cool cats retro seventies siamese cats copy 2This tall super hip cat wasn’t lonely for long. I picked him up in the country. At  the Gresford Billy Cart Derby as a matter of fact. Quite racey indeed.

But he quickly moved on to a new home and left the lovely ladies behind. These [dare I say it?] pussies are a bit too far gone to be resold, bearing numerous chips and bust up scars. They’ve lived hard and been well loved. The spicy stories they could tell…

My husband questioned why I had bothered with cheap damaged goods but when am I ever going to find another purfect [sorry] circa 1950s pair? Possibly never. I love them faults and all.
