Robin And Lizzy

Robin and Lizzy (8-9 weeks old) taken during their first photo-session, after I'd had them five days. Robin changed in appearance quite a lot as he grew up but Lizzy (right) was just a miniature version of the adult cat she was to become.

They had been discovered on 12 May by someone who was about to phone me. They were in a phone kiosk in Palmers Green hissing from the back of a cardboard box, and she offered them to me when she rang. She had enlisted the help of another lady who had come to the phone box and who lent her a large cat basket. They both suspected two people sitting in a car outside, each taking a deliberate lack of interest. When asked they said they thought two punks had left them there.

When they arrived at my home, my friend had nicknamed them Nosey and Piggy. They were both very cowed and frightened but their different modes of behaviour clearly showed. The next day the vet pronounced Nosey to be female and Piggy to be male, and they were fit and well apart from a mite infection in their ears. I named them Lizzy and Robin after the Cocteau Twins. I cannot say if their namesakes exhibited the same character traits.
