Sooty was a feral kitten who had lost his Mum. She had had to be put down after being snared.

I fed his family group (some 10 cats)for six years until I retired and then brought him and his sister home.

After living in the spare bedroom for a couple of years, with run of the front garden, his sister died.

Over the years he gradually took over the house, our two big dogs and my lazy-boy recliner.

Here he is in his final days some fifteen years later, an elderly Gentlecat to the end.
