Purr 'n' Fur

Our featured feline: the beautiful marmalade character taking pride of place here on our home page was a Dutch kitten called Dabbe, belonging to colleagues who worked at the same college as I was in eastern Holland. Trust a cat to find the sunniest spot! and his stripes contrasted beautifully with the duvet he was sitting on (Dec 1989).
