We had a VIP Visitor the other day; my mother's old Siamese cat Tikky. My mother died in March 2002 and was taken into the care of Helen, who has been housekeeper here at Myrtle Cottage for donkeys years. Tikky is now 22 and in failing health, but still as elegantly aristocratic as ever. Biggles ambled over to say hello and was greeted by a haughty Siamese hiss and a pat on the nose.
The CFZ will be making a donation towards Tikky's health care, as is only right and proper for such a venerable old lady.
