The Pussy Magnet Saga

Over the last few days, we have put up pictures of Bowie the stray cat at the local supermarket and vet. Bowie is showing signs of having once been domesticated and Felix the big stray tom has been sniffing her {probably} nether regions. If Bowie has an owner the best outcome would be for them to be reunited.

If I spent a week or so I could probably coerce Bowie into a cat trap.

Bowie is our fifth stray cat visitor in the last 12 months.

A few months back one of the ladies at the pharmacy said that stray cats like our place. I noted this.

This morning a young woman and her son from the nearby hamlet turned up looking for their lost ginger cat. She had been advised by her neighbour that often local stray cats turn up at our place. For whatever reason it is a pussy magnet. It is at the edge of both the wild and the town.

So now we understand that local folklore says that stray cats are likely to turn up here.

As it turns out the woman was an English teacher. I offered to help out if she wanted, but there is admin. in the way. Our nearest neighbour is also a teacher. In the hamlet there are also a German and a Breton teacher. If you include me that is an at least 10% per abode teacher count in a tiny area.

We inhabit a part of local folklore.
