Charlie was a street fighter, he was living
rough in a wishing well in a
neighbours garden. When they removed the
well he took up residence with us - after
persistently entering through the catflap
and stealing the food and generally making that dreaded tom cat smell!!!!!!
Maisy seemed to like him despite
this; so we had him neutered and he took
position of "Guard Cat", looking after the
two girls perfectly. Whenever the girls came
in, Charlie was sure to be seconds behind
arrived we thought it would be all to much
for him, but NO, he took her into the fold
and played with her constantly. He does the
same now with Enya, Jazz and Amelia. He
treats all "His Girls" very gently but he
has clearly two favorites; Maisy and
Since we enclosed the garden he has
become a softy, as he does not have to
protect the other anymore. He just spends
his days being a "Daddy" to them all.
Now in 2011 Charlie sticks with Maisy and sometimes Erin or Shakira in their own private part of the garden as he is getting too old to be bothered now. He is beginning to look his age and is taking each day as it comes.
