This was all so before my time, in kitty terms it is purractically Purrehistoric…

Long ago and far away, in a land where the trees never shed their leaves, where the snow never falls and the rain is so warm it’s like taking a shower with your clothes on, there lived and became a small Family.

But, before the family bit became and be-was, there were Cats (and after too, obviously).

Firstly and only for a very short while – due to a pack of yellow-eyed slavering feral dogs which ran in the night-time – there was Half’a’Guinness, a small feisty black kitten. This is him…

He loved his heggs did little Guinness.

Then there was Cobweb. Being a Siamese (though not quite as Pure as she ought to be) she had Purretensions and Temperament. Her bipeds were returning to Blighty and couldn’t take her with them, mostly due to the Temperament, but also the cost of air-freighting and quarantineing, so she became companion to little Arfa and looked down her nose at him, mostly…

This is her…

After the Dogs That Killed in the Night Time, it became known on the grapevine (or pussibly any old vine – stick a twig in the ground and it would grow like Jack’s Beanstalk) that Cobweb’s nevvy was looking for a Good Home, so along came a tiny black kitten which was named Squirrel…

And this is him…

Rather in the way of Marmers, Cobweb became the ‘stremely irritatin’ one and Squirrel, like me, the Most Dearly Beloved.

When it became time for the Family, which had now become Four instead of Two, to return also to Blighty, Cobweb fell on all her four paws and found a home with an ancient Australian lady called Dorothy, who spoke to her as if she were at least a Duchess, and fussed over her such that the pu’s had to stifle their grins behind their hands, for Lady Cobweb had never been spoken to in such gushing tones before: Dorothy fed her on roast chicken and vitamin pills and she throve into old age.

Alas for Squirrel, the Siamese part of his Temperament made him flee from his would-be adopters and he disappeared into the Jungle, never to be seen again…

Thus ends the tale of the First Cats.
