Enter Felix . . . . . .

Archie is the most territorial cat in the world…in my world, anyway…. until the arrival of  Felix (real name unknown) She is the prettiest little kitten, with MASSIVE EYES, and as a consequence looks permanently startled!!!!

She appears to have moved in for the winter, with his blessing. Yesterday me and the two of them were all asleep together on the settee . . .

I think of him as the Chubby Checker of his day……
