Those of you who know me and the wife are fully versed in the adventures of our cat Fernando and his tempestuous relationship with a cat called Layla that we 'fostered' a few months back. Needless to say they didn't get on particuarly well with Fernando treating her like a toy full of cat nip ready to be torn apart at the slightest opportunity. Poor Layla is now in another home and hopefully enjoying a peaceful life.
So, we got a call the other day asking if we could take in another cat as the pound is desperately short of foster 'parents'* and being the bleeding heart liberals that we are we couldn't refuse.
We're going to pick up the cat on Saturday under the proviso that if Fernando terrorises it we'll have to give it back to the shelter after a couple of weeks.
Stay tuned to see how they get on!
