I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself.
You and your lovely readers have christened me Tag or Taggy. Now, that is very nice but after much consideration ( see photo Jude 1) I have decided that as it is the year of the letter ‘J’ for animal names in France that I will now be known as Jude.
I heard Hey Jude on the radio and my foster mum appeared to enjoy that song so I thought ‘what the heck, may as well try and please her’
I can’t believe I have only here for 3 days but have to admit that the surroundings are rather more palatial than with my poor mum, Candy. I am warm and cosy and have regular meals, admittedly not as many as I feel I need but enough to keep body and soul together! The foster mother is slowly being trained to recognise my many requirements and seems to be a quick learner. I have also picked up a trick or two of my own and have fooled them into thinking that I fully understand the use of newspaper for bodily functions – she has had to put out an appeal for more papers and I am starting to appreciate the finer points of the British press ( photo Jude 2)
I would like to say a big thank you to Val for setting me on the road to stardom, to Terri Tippett for her generous offer, to Judy Kent for all her newspapers and of course a very big thank you to my wonderful mum, Candy for giving me the chance of life in exchange for hers.
I miss her.
I look forward to writing more as I become more expert with the keyboard – my foster mum complains that my claws scratch the keys – she keeps threatening clippers – sounds terrible!
Anyone who thinks they would like to offer me a ‘for ever’ home can come and visit us near Cordes just call my secretary, Jane on 06 24 09 87 30 or 05 63 53 95 57
Many thanks, Val
