Meet Captain Jack Archibald Pemberton the Third!
So join us he did! Since he arrived there has been a bit of a Mexican stand-off interspersed with a lot of hissing but I hope that wont last for ever. Anyway, I took him to the vets to get him checked out and see if he had a chip (which he hasn't). Until then we thought he was a she, but now he is correctly labelled, and carbon dated at about 14 weeks, and now we have named him he must be staying, unless the notices I put up in the area result in his real owners coming forward. I don't hold out any hope for this though, as the circumstances he was found in suggests he may have been dumped out of a car!
But as you can see that doesn't seem to have bothered him! He got a clean bill of health and was wormed to boot!
Before you ask about the name, he is debonair and I think he looks like he is wearing a grey trench coat, hence Captain Jack (which has nothing to do with my deep love of Doctor Who, Torchwood and all things Barrowman...) and for a fella with this level of sophistication; one name was never going to be enough! He may have started off in the gutter (hedge) but he is rising to greater things lol!
