Benny: Very tall, ginger and white, long-haired nancy boy. Lost several lives what with his badly gnawed tail, thyroidectomy, heart problems etc. Lived until he was a stately 17 years old. My "best mate" and I'm told I turned him into a dog.
Moocher: Short, plump, scared of other cats. Loved food and cuddles. Often found under the duvet, especially when children were in the house. Would let Jayne carry her around in her arms for hours. Made a meeow face but no sound came out.
