When we went to Cornwall in late August, the last thing on our minds was taking a cat home. So as we arrived at the cottage only to find a ginger cat walking around the cars. It wasn't a particularly pleasant day and it was raining quite hard. I tried to befriend him and he came right to me, somehow I knew that he was special as he was so trustworthy. I realised that he had no tail and was very skinny so I presumed it was a stray.

I eventually managed to coax him inside by being calm and speaking with a soft voice. He listened and came. It was then like he almost immediately that he adopted us. We bought him some food and he ate it all up in less that 10 minutes. He was so skinny!

A few days later, and Marmalade (newly named) was practically family, but he was not ours, in fact he didn't belong to anybody. As the days wore on and our holiday was coming to an end it was becoming harder to think of him being all alone by himself with no love and no home. So we made the big decision to bring him home to London. Now settled in with our two other cats, it's all going well and we all love him very much.
