The Cat Formerly Known For His Dirty Face

The Cat With The Dirty Face is back but this time his face is clean. As such, he’s now been re-christened The Cat Formerly Known For His Dirty Face.

We’ve seen him pop in and out of a house down the street, but this kitty doesn’t seem to have much of a home life. He’s constantly starving and breaks into our house in the middle of the night to raid the cat biscuit bowl.

After much persuasion and enticement, The Cat Formerly Known For His Dirty Face was moved to the back lane where he can chat the stray girls who live there, and eat biscuits at our back door twice a day.

He’s been coming round off and on for some weeks, but it’s taken him ages to realize that feeding times are 830AM and 430PM. For the last week now he’s turned up on time, and eaten his fill, so we hope he’ll stick to the routine. Comparing how he was a few months ago to today, it’s clear he’s already looking a lot better!

He does look so much better. And I think he has put on some weight too, thanks to your cat biscuits at your back door. Well Done!

How much food do you buy each week to feed the strays?

We buy them about 3.5kg of biscuits plus there are treats of boiled chicken liver and chicken leftovers. And of course fresh water twice a day.
