Feline Fragments is written/compiled by
As the words suggest, Feline Fragments accommodates those pieces of feline-related material that don't really fit into our other categories, and/or may be too short to warrant a page of their own. You'll find some humorous items, some cats that have been in the news, and various other items of interest, some old, some newer . . . all kinds of 'cat stuff' that we have come across and think worth passing on. We think you'll find something to enjoy.
In addition we've introduced Mini Fragments, similar to the above but mostly very short. There's a real potpourri of cat news and stories here, in no particular order and from times gone by as well as from much more recently. Have a browse!

Our featured feline at the head of the page, and your companion through Feline Fragments, is Maggie. She came as a kitten from Powys Cat Rescue. One of their volunteers had seen her wandering around, apparently uncared for, and thought her rather young to be just left to roam. The person 'responsible' for her said she 'didn't care', and so the youngster was taken in for rehoming. Only about 4 months old when I brought her home in 2003, she was a self-assured soul, probably because of her early experience, and was soon climbing all the available trees in the garden. She was a determined hunter in her earlier days, and was usually outside, but now prefers snoozing unless the weather is good. She has superb whiskers and as the photo shows, loves getting into things! (see it here without the puzzle effect)
