This one is going back a few years and one of the key characters to the yarn is 'The Wimps' Great Great Uncle Pugwash ( a white odd eyed Persian) that the Doc had a huge soft spot for.
Now at the time of this yarn we had a fish pond in the garden which had 3 Golden Orff in it which we had purchased from the local garden centre. We chose Orff because of having cats as they are very fast swimmers and dart about. All went well for a number of years, the cats would sit and watch the fish and because of the cat presence no Herons dared to enter the garden so the fish grew and prospered. Then came the fateful day when we arrived home from work to find one very dead Orff on the lawn and not a cat to be seen. The Doc was not a happy bunny. Still we had 2 remaining Orff so all was not lost! A few weeks later and we again came home to find another dead fish on the lawn. This was too much for the Doc to take and action needed to be taken so the following day after work he fetched a deckchair and his newspaper and declared that he was going to sit and guard the last remaining fish and make sure the cats didn't get it. All was quiet and I was busy in the kitchen when the Doc let out an anguished cry. Our son who was upstairs came running down as he thought his Dad was having a heart attack and we rushed out to see what was up. There was the Doc standing by his overturned chair with one very pleased as punch Pugwash smiling adoringly up at the Doc with the last remaining Orff firmly held between his front paws!!.
