A tale of two cats

Now here’s a story about a woman who’s taken steps which she hopes will prevent her possible eviction.

Yes 49-year old Deborah Hodge over the years has already been forced to re-home three animals due to landlords refusing to allow pets in their premises. 

And having just been made redundant she is terrified of being made to part with her cat if she is evicted again if she can’t pay her rent, so has taken he unusual step of marrying the animal.

Suitably attired in a tuxedo, Deborah tied the knot with her cat, INDIA at a civil ceremony presided over by a legally ordained friend. 

The 5-year old cat was draped in gold lamé for the big day and meowed her vows in front odf Deborah’s family and friends in a park in South East London.

Said Deborah, after the ceremony, ‘By marrying India, I need any future landlords to know that we come as a package and we cannot be separated under any circumstances as she is as important to me as the children. I refuse to be parted with her. I’d rather live on the streets than be without her.’

Meanwhile news has just been reported that another cat has just been re-united with his owner after being discovered on an offshore oil rig – five years after he went missing.

The adventurous feline was found in a shipping container by bamboozled workers and flown back to the Scottish mainland by helicopter on Friday.

His microchip was subsequently checked by staff from the Scottish SPCA – unmasking the cat’s true identity as Dexter.

It’s also emerged that he had been living as a stray around Peterhead Prison in Aberdeenshire in recent years.

Dexter had even earned the nickname “one-eyed Joe” from the prison staff who kept him fed and watered.

In the second hour of today’s show, being a Tuesday I was once again joined by Margaret Mils, who this week chose to look at a 19th century lady called Clarissa Bramston.

Clarissa was married to a local churchman, but before her marriage had travelled extensively with her father who was in the military, but her claim to fame was her creation of a miniature sketchbook of Essex scenes.

Listen again here to what Margaret had to say about this worthy: –

Hope to see you again next week,
