Ginger William – a sort of sequel


I am sure I have the memory of Ginger William (see my series of recent posts with links in the sidebar which have also been linked to Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge)  to thank for the fact that when, in April 2009, I saw a picture of a ginger cat in a re-homing email, my attention was caught.  We were catted and dogged more than enough at the time, but I phoned the lady he had walked in upon – who was shortly to leave for Johannesburg – and said that if it got to the stage where SPCA was the only option, we would take him.

The eleventh hour was reached, and she phoned me.  On 6th May, 2009, I drove out to Umhlanga to collect him.  That is how MacGregor joined our household.

  2. Another story and another ginger cat to warm the cockles of the heart…
    George Bernard Shaw, who was a vegetarian, used to say that when he entered heaven he would be welcomed by huge numbers of cows, sheep, chickens, pigs and ducks whose lives had been saved because he hadn’t eaten them. I think your entry into heaven will be announced with trumpets and ginger cars competing to greet you !

    Looking at MacGregor, I can understand why you just had to have him join your family. He looks in seventh heaven, curled up on the duvet. 🙂

    Went back to your original story Parts I-X – my favorite bits were your German tourists and dehydration and that icy water you found — your phrasing was priceless. Loved the story. So, who is this gent? William the II?
