When I moved to my present home, on the very first day I noticed a large cat with funny ears sitting in the front garden.
I didn't know at the time that he was a Scottish Fold who had been living rough in the area for a few years and obviously did not have a home.
He was dirty with matted hair and needed a good meal. After establishing that he had no owner, I tempted him in to the kitchen and after giving him some food he promptly fell asleep on a rug.
This was my first experience of looking after a cat and I could not have had a more wonderful introduction.
I had the pleasure of his company and friendship for two and a half years until he was diagnosed with cancer and had to be put to sleep.
I often thank God for having been given this chance which completely changed my view of cats having been a 'dog' person previously.
I am attaching a couple of photos of Ginger.
