Mickey the Cat
Becky, who is a very special friend, rescued Mickey from the vets that she works at during her holidays. He lived in the town and was a bit thin. But now he lives in our barn and Becky says he is fat! It is a very different life for him, but he seems to like it and catches mice and shrews. We love it when he comes through the wood and sits at the top of our field and tells us of his adventures.
He says that he is related to lions and tigers and sometimes he pounces around and shows us tricks that he learnt from his African descendants. We keep very still and watch and listen. Not so long ago apparently there would sometimes be a cat that accompanied sailors on their ships as they travelled the high seas. We have never seen a ship nor the sea and Mickey delights in telling us of death defying tales on the ocean waves. He swishes his tail and rubs his whiskers - we are indeed a very captive audience! Gordon & Sylvia
Hello! My name is Gordon and I am a Gold Sebright and my best friend is Sylvia. She is a Silver Sebright. We live with our foster parents on a small farm in the country. We thought that we would put our take on life and what we get up to through the year into a diary for you. All the characters are real and the events are a true record, interpreted with a modicum of poetic licence. We hope you enjoy it. Love Gordon and Sylvia
