I was looking through some old photos the other day, when I realised I've got tonnes of pictures of cats that I've never owned but have somehow weaseled their way into my life, and I thought I might make a little series of them (maybe I'll call it Cats I've Never Owned....).
In the autumn of 2006 I'd recently returned from travelling, and was living back with my parents, when Lucky here briefly took up residence in the old cider barn. His real family lived across the valley, but for a
few days we would look out of the kitchen door in the morning to find him staring up at
us expectantly. He never got anything, and was probably living off the rats anyway, but that didn't stop him hoping.
