Meet the new cat

by John MacBeath Watkins

We have a new cat. Our large luxury cat, Bea Geste, is slowly adapting to the presence of an interloper, and if you come in, please offer him reassurance that people still love him, don't just heap love on the small new sports cat, Joan Jett.

Beau is now more than three years old, Joan just about two months old.
