Who Are You Calling Erica?
We had a surprise visitor yesterday. My mum’s sister (who lives in Cornwall) phoned and said she had to come to London unexpectedly and could she have a bed for the night? It was nice to see her, another person to give me lots of fuss! I spent a lot of time throwing myself down at her feet and begging for tummy tickles. The only thing I don’t like about her so much is that she keeps calling me Erica! She says that any kitty so pretty and so fluffy must be a girly. I find this very offensive. I may be pretty (handsome) and I’m definitely fluffy, but can one not be fluffy and macho at the same time? I am a BOY! Erica, indeed! Next thing she will be trying to tie bows in my fur.
I have some sad news about another Gorgeous Ginger. This is Jaffa.
Jaffa has been a member of the Gorgeous Gingers for a while. Unfortunately, recently Jaffa had a really bad accident. His owner, Michael, had to help him to the Rainbow Bridge. Jaffa was only fifteen months old. I know you will all feel as sad for Jaffa and Michael as I do.
We have 36 members of the Gorgeous Gingers at the moment – and a few more waiting to be added. I am going to add a bit about Gorgeous Gingers who have gone to the Bridge, like poor little Jaffa and the lovely Trixie.
The beans are not at all mad about Red Auerbach. In fact, they were worried that they might have offended your beans.
Our Grandma is English and she doesn't baseball either, and she's lived in Red Sox Nation longer than she lived in England...
My Mum wants to kiss your little ginger dimple.*sigh* It's so embarrassing...
Sorry to hear about Jaffa.
What happened to poor cute Jaffa? That's so sad - the same age as my 3 babies.

We have a great gramma who always calls us girls & she & her and all those girl terms because she says cats are "always" girls! Geez. If thats true, where do baby cats come from?
Hope your mum is adapting to going back to work. I wish mum could stay home and play all the time too.
So sad to hear about Jaffa. It is not good when a kitties life is so short.
I am really sorry about Jaffa :( 15 months is too young.
Of course you are a manly cat! I can't believe the lack of sensitivity! Look at GK: he prances around in a boa for crying out loud.
glad to hear your mum and you are better. too bad about the biscuits. perhaps she could leave them outdoors for wandering kitties who are not quite so sophisticatted?
please tell your mum we appreciated her boston pictures. our mommy showed them to us and 'splained about some of them. she & daddy went there on their 25th anniversary five years ago, and they saw lots of the same places. she says it was nice to revisit them again and see some new places, too.
so sorry to read about poor little jaffa. we will purrray for his beans' comfort!
be good to mum, now--the little monsters can be QUITE trying, and she will need extra lovins from you.
We's reely sorry to heer bout poor Jaffa and we's sending purrs to Michael.
I am sorry for Jaffa, she was to young to have to go. But if her Dad thought it best I guess it's best she don't suffer.
Many kitty tears for Jaffa and his family.
We are furry sorry to hear 'bout Jaffa. Please let his dad know that we are purrin' for him.
