Nelson "adopted" me on February 10th. After being kept in for 18 days he decided to jump ship through a "should have been locked" catflap! He returned 48 hours later very wet and very hungry (as I recounted in my last email).
Since then Nelson has turned out to be the most fantastic cat ever! So much character, so affectionate and intelligent (and so naughty sometimes) - I can't believe how lucky I am to have him.
He watches TV, lying on the sofa top above me, one paw resting lightly on my head! He has a fascination for the computer keyboard (picture below) and also loves lying on the window sill watching the world go by and chattering at the pigeons from the safety of the kitchen.
Can't imagine what I did without him. I urge anyone reading this to go down to your place as they will never believe what lovely cats could be waiting for them. Nelson and I thank you all!
