Meet Rosie. She is our next door neighbour's young Persian cat who is currently being fed and watered by Noreen.
She is also about to drop a bundle of kittens. The owners get a female cat, don't have it neutered and then wonder why every tomcat in the area comes to call. They then bugger off on holiday for 3 weeks - although to be fair they have gone "home" to Lebanon because the husband's father is seriously ill. So Noreen has had to man the breach. Fortunately they're due back today, although who knows if that will materialise!?
Fortunately Rosie is a placid and amenable pussy, although that lovely soft, long fur needs a lot of brushing to stop it getting matted. I love her Hobbit feet - you can just see in this picture the tufts of fur between her toes.
