....has a rather unusual history, which, being all cat lovers in here, I thought you might like to hear about :)
She was born, the runt of the litter, in Cape Town South Africa. I was phoned one day by a friend whose husband was about to DROWN this last of the litter poor little kitten, and she wanted to know whether I would take her. I raced to do so. Since then she has grown, from a tiny scrap of bones and grey fur into a shiny and handsome cat! Tortoiseshell. She lived with me and my hubbie aboard our yacht for three years in Cape Town, only fell off once, and swam for a mile before she was hiked out of the sea by a friendly sailor. She accompanied us on our boat for a passage from Cape Town to France up the Atlantic. She sat with me in the cockpit on my watches in ALL weather, even when the waves were tumbling into the cockpit and she got soaked; she would not leave me. 3/4 of the way up the Atlantic our boat sank in a bad storm. We were rescued by a British ship, all of us, and taken to England. There she was immediately whisked off to cat quaranteen for 6 long, long months. We had lost everything, but managed to find a tiny cottage in the countryside to live in. We visited her every weekend (it was a long journey by car) and waited for the 6 months to be over. It broke my heart each time I had to leave her. Then the great day came and we took her home with us. Now she is as happy as I have ever seen a cat! She plays like a kitten, and loves the English countryside. I will never forget her loyalty during the rough weather at sea. She is so special to me. Her name is Fairy Fey. I look forward to getting to know your cats
