Its official ... cats like buttered toast: The Hero/Villain

By popular request, here is a photograph of the Hero/Villain of the story.


'The Butter Bandit' (AKA 'Big Boy') is an old cat. He used to live in one of the nearby flats with an elderly man, but when the latter left (we are not sure if he died or went into a care home), the cat began to live in our garden and come in to the house to eat every couple of days. Eventually he started coming in every day until he became a permanent resident ... and after being called 'You don't live here' for some time, he was eventually named 'Big Boy'.

He is normally a very even tempered cat (he occasionally gets annoyed with our younger female cat and hisses at her) and it appears that he was neutered when he was young. He likes to sit or lay on his favourite cushion near the cat flap or – if the weather is fine – in the sun on the patio.

  2. A desperate villain :)

    (Like the name - one of our chickens is called 'Big Girl' - they should meet :) )

  3. Dr Vesuvius,

    In reality he is a big softy ... and I have found it very easy to forgive him.

    All the best,

    Desperate for something ... probably more buttered toast!

    'Big Boy meets Big Girl'; it sounds like that could be an interesting headline.

    All the best,

    Bob
