Fat ginger cat wins luxury holiday.

I think, well of course I do. (I think therefore I am, I'm pink therefore I'm spam. An old joke but I won't apologise, it makes me smile and Meldrew thinks it hilarious but then Meldrew thinks everything's side splitting! ) This though is more than a thought, I have decided - following yesterdays Ginger news - to include ginger cats that have hit the headlines.

Benji the cat has delighted his owners after being crowned the Hill's Pet Slimmer of the Year 2005. The seven-year-old shorthaired ginger cat from Fareham in Hampshire astounded judges by losing 30% of his body weight, going from 10.80kg to 7.55kg. Benji is owned by John and Jackie Tucker. The animal's success brought prizes of £2,000 worth of holiday vouchers, £500 worth of pet accessories and one year's free supply of Hill's pet food.

I'm not too sure about the year's supply of pet food, that's an awful lot of temptation...

A sad tale to finish

MARY, the pleasantly-plump ginger cat, was freezing and frightened when she was found dumped in a van just days before Christmas in Southampton.

Now Christmas is well and truly over if it's possible make it probable.

I do wish Australia would catch up. We've no competitions for cat holidays here. Life's not that bad sitting atop my water tank, but a bit or a break would still be very welcome. I could do with the weight loss insentive.
