Introducing Tetley....

Tetley gets a lot of mentions here on the blog, especially during Friday Letters so I thought it was about time you guys got to know a little bit more about the cat love of my life!

Tetley is a rescue, he came from Battersea after being discovered outside a Police station in a cardboard box. We actually didn't meet Tetley (formally named Kenzo (!!!)) until the day we collected him, we had visited Battersea a couple of times although we had been unable to put our names forward as we were still living in our old flat and having a kitten just wouldn't have been practical. A few short weeks after making the move to Canterbury Stuart received an email from Battersea asking if we were still interested in adopting a kitten as they had a kitten who was desperate for a new home, they sent us a picture and it was pretty much love at first sight.

Tetley arrived in our home on a Friday and spent the weekend exploring and making the house his own. He is a tenacious cat, once he sets his mind to something he is going to do it, whether that be chewing through cables, climbing the Christmas tree or terrorising the (much bigger) cat that used to visit our garden. Whilst he drives me crazy at times I absolutely wouldn't be without him.

  1. He is very cute. I got my cat from an RSPCA recus centre. He has a poorly paw right now and I think I might have to take him to the Vets today. X
