to our family Gary - or should we let it be known …
"Gary Stuart (yes after the mouse!), Ginja Ninja,
Kinker, Broderick". You came into our lives or our
daughter’s lives in April 2007. Your mum had been
killed by a car, and you and your three siblings, Gina,
Gerry and George (the Fur Gs!) were very fortunate to
have found Ingrid who hand-reared you all.
two daughters, Ebony who is 12 and Jasmin who is eight
are very much cat lovers, (too much of their mother's
influence some might say!) jumped at the chance to help
Ingrid. Many Saturday afternoons were spent with the 4
Gs, feeding and cuddling and watching them grow into mischievous
inquisitive kittens. Gina, Gerry and George found loving
homes while Gary still remained. It really didn’t
take too much persuading or numerous whispers in our ears
of "Gary needs a home" that he finally came
home to join our family, which consisted of our other
two cats, Lucky who is 17, and Victoria who is 15. We
spent our days making sure we introduced Gary slowly to
our old girls, he just wanted to be instant friends, but
alas no siree!
Victoria would not warm to him at all and Lucky will only
touch noses if Gary remains still, which is near impossible!
Even though it is only early days, my instinct tells me
that they will never share the same hot water bottle.
favourite pastime is running up the curtains (a squirt
of water soon fixed that!) and grabbing at feet (anyone's,
he's not fussy!).
will be much loved and cared for throughout his life and
in the short time he has been with us has brought us much
joy and laughter.
Anthony, Ebony and Jasmin Broderick - and our gorgeous
cats, Lucky and Victoria.
