Here she is looking suitably scholarly.
Misty was taken in by the Blue Cross in Cambridge. She was very young,
very thin and pregnant. Home seemed empty and unwelcoming without
a feline to rule it, and Misty was very much in need of a good home.
She attacked every meal as if it might be stolen from her any minute.
She scavenged from anywhere she could, including stealing a defrosting
beefburger from a neighbour. Her nervousness didn't last long,
She valued her freedom. One day she didn't come home, and was found a few days later with a badly damaged front leg. The vet couldn't save it. But she managed magnificently on three legs - just didn't get quite so much exercise so she got a little portly.
Sadly, Misty succumbed to problems in her digestive system in November 2004, when she was at least 16 years old. She is much missed.
