This is Porcini: the latest addition to the Boydell household:

Part cat, part parrot: a carrot?!

Mrs B and I found her on one of our countryside walks as we were wandering down toward the canal and heard a very loud mewing; she emerged from the hedge, tiny and very hungry. We took her to the vet and were told that she was also very dehydrated - dangerously so, in fact - so, we took her home and tended to her. Not usually a cat person, I've quite taken to the little monster: I especially like her pouncing. Also, she discovered some spare Titanic Plum Porter bottle tops and has taken to designing her own game:

Think Shove Ha'penny meets Tiddlywinks: we're naming this game Tops Cat.

And in the best tradition of our family pet naming, there is a David Bowie aspect too: Ziggy is, of course, 'Ziggy Stardog' and Porcini is 'The Cheen-cheenie'.

Here's fun: what other Bowie-esque pets could we have? A gerbil called 'Gerbil Gerbil', perhaps?
