"Baby"


------ Sirikit Shasta------
(14 January 1983 - 1997)

Baby was a Devon Si-Rex.

Baby came to us from Robyn Eldering (like Poppy and Boofy).

We had just lost a little darling called Saffy (a red Devon Rex boy). Robyn had this little special darling called Baby.

She was not exactly what one would call a pretty cat. She had very little hair, and a weepy eye. It turned out she had mild brain damage and an enlarged heart.

Robyn knew that Baby needed a special home so she joined our menagerie and lived to a good age of 14 years.

She was the 'sad sack' of the cat world - she even managed to fall off the kitchen counter when she went to sleep whilst sitting up!

Nick's common phrase was "you're fat, you're ugly, and no body loves you" -
meaning of course that she was pleasantly plump, so ugly she was gorgeous and we loved her dearly.

She was such a beautiful, loving little one.
