Little Lord Fauntleroy is strutting around the house trying to look important. Yes, Kenny “the Boss” Chihuahua has been out to meet his fans, giving me the opportunity to email some exceptional news for you!
Mother, known to you as Maggie, will be awarded an Honorary Fellowship at the University of Suffolk later this month in recognition of her notable contributions to the community. I cannot tell you how proud and delighted we all feel about this well earned and deserved acknowledgement. Of course the good lady herself will have none of it, insisting she is merely a “facilitator” and will accept said accolade on behalf of the volunteers, without whom there would be no SESAW.
Now back to the animals as I don’t think Kenneth has told you about the cats awaiting homes, in particularly a little puss called Marti who has been with us for six months. She arrived pregnant but the kittens are all weaned and she is ready for an adult only home where she would be the only cat.
Our next sale is at the Community Hall, Hintlesham, IP8 3PS, 11-2pm on 13th October. Lots to buy including collectables, jewellery, furnishings, a tombola, raffle and refreshments. 50p entry, free parking. Our popular Christmas Fair will be held at The Old School, Long Melford on Sunday 18th November. Tables still available, phone 01206 263269 to book.
No award could sway Mother from her evening rounds so I’m off to accompany her before it gets dark. The nights are drawing in and getting damp but a cosy nest in the hay bales is still the best bed for me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.
