The late Sally Waters with a new kittenThe first time we visited Stately Terrace Framlingham a ginger cat rushed up and told us they loved us.  After we moved to the Terrace we learnt that the ginger belonged to Sally our near neighbour and had been named George on the usually safe assumption that he was a tom.  In fact George was a betty as they call female cats in Suffolk.  A sunny day years later we could see George curled up asleep on Sally's garden roof ... an hour later George was still there unmoving.  George had passed away sleeping in the sun ... can't think of a nicer way to go.

Lot's more years later Sally who always had two or three cats also sadly passed away.  We've seen the new people in Sally's house with a tortoiseshell kitten ... what goes round comes round.
