Tell us your favourite story about your pet:  I was cooking one evening and thought that we had a leak in the kitchen as I kept getting splashes of water on my face and shoulder.  After looking at the ceiling for ages I noticed out the corner of my eye Apollo was standing at the sink, swatting the drips as they fell from the tap! He has very good aim!

Has your pet ever had an illness, accident or injury? Tell us about it.

Apollo has been diagnosed with mild Hip Dysplasia which is quite rare in cats. He is luckily not on any medication, however we do have to keep a close eye on him and his weight.  Not so easy with a cat that eats everything in sight!!
