Well it seems Mrs Shafiq has come through
JayJay will be going to the Shafiqs at the end of this month. when they get back from their hols
I'm utterly delighted, they are such gentle, generous folk and although Mister Jay Jay has limited stay left this side of the Bridge they have discussed his needs and decided he will be an indoor cat from now on, and has a new sister (also B&W) to look forward to.
I'm raising a glass tonight, to good neighbours, selfless generosity and a little tiny bit of brass neck from your loyal servant.
Fingers crossed, he's not quite there yet but I've changed the title of this thread with an optimistic heart
