This is our cat "Kipper"He arrived 7 years ago during a great gale sweeping across the West of Ireland. We heard an unusual squeeking outside the back door, and there was this this tiny scrap of wet and muddy fur. This we washed in the kitchen sink, and there was Kipper. He grew up to be a very handsome cat as you can see. He is very affectionate, but likes to go off on his own sometimes. He was once away for a week, and we thought we had lost him, but he came home well fed and glossy as ever. He likes climbing trees, and loves to have his photograph taken, and as soon as he sees the camera he poses. Kipper was our first cat, now he has 9 companions (all rescued). -Chris O.
