September 2009: We're very sad to report that Tizer died, following a short fight against cancer, on 24 September. Roy Sloane, who 'changed his opinion of cats for ever' after living with Tizer and described him as his 'best friend', said that he and his family will miss him terribly, as he meant a great deal to them. Having lost cats ourselves over the years, we know how it feels, and extend our sympathy. However, it's comforting to know that Tizer found such a good home for the final year or so of his life, where he received so much love and attention.
October 2010: Tizer's story appears as one of those featured in a little book of true cat tales for children entitled Bumble the Brave Kitten, by Sam Hay, published by Macmillan; ISBN 978-0-330-52181-9.
Note: since Tizer was 'employed' by the British Transport Police and also worked at a railway station, it was decided he belonged with Rail Station Cats rather than Police Cats. The BTP is a separate body from Britain's regular police force, and most of its funding comes from the train-operating companies rather than the government. Although its jurisdiction is exercised mostly over railways, the underground and similar transport facilities, BTP officers can act as regular police constables outside their normal jurisdiction in certain circumstances. See Wikipedia for more information.

Our featured feline at the head of the page is Socks, pictured in 2003 surveying his 'estate' in the early morning sunshine. Affectionately known as Soxy, he blossomed from a thin and hungry stray into a substantial and handsome cat who loved life and company, and his gentle ways endeared him to many friends. He is now no longer with us, but you can read more from his human companion here.
