Info

Rise and fall. He was one of a family of 9 raised against a working class background. He never knew his father. He liked to play alone (I suppose that is why he was noticed) - he was no prettier than any other kitten. It was obvious that Mum did not want them around anymore. So he followed the stranger who noticed him. He was given queer food out of tins whenever he miaowed. In return he would be photographed frequently. His picture began to appear on chocolate boxes, biscuit tins and carpet adverts. As commissions increased the successful kitten lived on a diet of white mice and shrimps. He even appeared on the cover of Hirpers - he had arrived! Then one day he wasn't a kitten anymore...
