Josephine in her garden
Josephine was "free to good home" in the Cambridge Evening News. I had moved into my first-ever home after leaving university, and applied for the post of 'cat servant' at once. She was very attached to her people, accompanying them when they went in the car to visit friends and relations, travelling on my lap in the front of the car and eagerly watching out of the window when she wasn't asleep. She expected to get out whenever the car slowed, so I only got any peace on motorway trips.

Josephine sitting Josephine got used to sitting on my lap while I typed over her during MUG sessions. Her wish was my command. Alas, purring to the last, she succumbed to kidney disease after giving me 16 very happy years.
