Cheshire Cat Grins

One of my cat stories, (referred to in an earlier post that had been rejected by one editor),
has since been accepted by email.
The Cat’s Protection's official supporter’s magazine,
The Cat, are publishing it in their Paws for Thought section.
It’s a small triumph and I’m thrilled!

The story is based around Borage (only a few months old here) and Tarragon (11 years old) She's not amused by the small interloper, who took the place of her beloved Comfrey!
(I gave them different names in the story)

I'm counting off the days, until I get my copy of the magazine:

In the meantime, for those of you who have never heard the poem
by Roger McGough The Cats' Protection League, enjoy!

Hilariously funny, isn't it?


  1. Tarragon looks utterly unimpressed by his new 'friend'.

    Congratulations for the acceptance in the magazine too.

  2. Yes LOL! She was like Queen Victoria for several months. We had to work hard to make her a happy girl and now that Borage is just over a year old and bigger than her, the dynamics have changed and harmony has begun to reign.

  3. Congratulations on your story! That's brilliant, I love cat stories! My cats, Millie and Mischa were the stars of one of my stories, I find them very inspiring!

  4. Awh bless you both, thanks.
    Ooh where can I read about Millie and Mischa?
