This is he, the rat-catcher of Ruby Street.

  1. He looks so cuddly! Somehow I imagined him to look much more sinister.

  2. he was cuddly too!
    he used to sleep on the bed next to me; my equally beloved black cat William used to sleep on the pillow curled round my head. I used to be purred to sleep by two cats.
    It’s funny but so many people used to say to me, that is NOT a cat, that is just wearing a cat suit.
    More tales will follow!

  3. I think he used his looks in the same way Puss does in Shrek 2; to put you off guard. He was an undeniably beautiful ginger and white cat but he came in once night after a fight and he bristled like he’d been electocuted and seeing him fighting was an eye-opener indeed. Since he only came back with injuries round face, neck and shoulders, we suspect he almost always won. Around the time this picture was taken, he had a great chunk taken out of one ear, like a clipping taken from a bus ticket. He was visibly proud of this scar ever after!

  4. Making a little break right now and coming to my favourite place to relax in the most interesting way: with my Cafe Crem friends.
    Before I start reading the story… Watson remembers me of Cat Astroff, a cat which my niece “Contessine” (she was with us here at some point, but then… well, let me say, other priorities!) featured in her blog, with words and pictures.. a pity that she didn’t go on with the series of Cat Astroff, it was quite funny…
    You can find it at
    Just scroll down a bit and you will find the 2 posts concerning Cat Astroff.
    A pity too that she stopped with the stories of Coco, which Kevin had started illustrating… I tried my bet to keep her motivated, but…

  5. I see the resemblance; cats of a feather, so to speak!
    Shame as you say that she didn’t go on, but life intervenes, unless you’re my friend Jonathan whose blog has taken over his life entirely. Google Of course I could be wrong…and you will see what I mean. He has to have someone else run a holiday blog Of course I might be on vacation… when he does go away, because the regulars pine for him!
