There was a lot of sadness here when reader Gayle Ferguson, a biologist at Massey University in New Zealand, lost her beloved tabby Huxley to a marauding dog. I’m pleased to report that she has adopted a new kitten. Meet Lucy:
Lucy is a sweetie. She loves cuddles, is friendly to everybody, has a very loud purr, and is fond of food and vocalising. She would love to play with her big step-sister Millie, but Millie will have none of her 🙁 Lucy loves playing ping-pong and hunting for cicadas. Lucy and her brother are 5 months old and both had to be rehomed due to one of their carers being allergic to cats. Maybe one day she will fill the void left by Huxley, whom we miss so much.
