Marcel is a blast from the past, having been rehomed back in 2011. His mum has written with an update:
“We got Moggy now Marcel about 7 years ago, our beautiful boy. He took a lot longer to settle in than my previous strays. But always was a gentle gent, just so nervous from his previous experience of being abandoned when his owners moved. He is now our old gent greying but has 2 little friends we rescued as kittens. All live happy together, and keep him young. Thank you the Ark for giving us a wonderful boy who has a happy spoilt life”
It’s good to see black cats being rescued; they’re always the ones left on the shelf for some reason.
