The Tail Of MISTER Bingley

Bingley had been thinning out around the base of her tail and assumed that it was mange or fleas or whatever, so we gave our vet a call.  Now Bingley had been a timeshare cat for a fair while, but because she had moved in with us on a more permanent basis, we assumed that Bing was a stray.  She needed medical attention.  Imagine the horror that we turn up there hoping to get her treated - only to find that she is tagged and is noticed as missing.  I was absolutely shocked and heartbroken when the vet called Bingley's actual folks, who we have found lives down the road from us.  And that slinky Bingley with the girly soft fur and cuddly demeanor was actually MISTER Bingley - very definitely a 'blue toothbrush' cat..  Anyway, we walked away from the vet minus Bingley, I was absolute inconsolable.

Bingley's folks gave us a knock and returned him to us, saying he is happier here and gave him over. I was blubbing and doing my best 'puss, puss' and we have their number etc.  It's all worked out in the end and Bingley is now crashed out in the other room.

It has taken a dent out of my research for today and I think I will do the Roger Allam skit in The Thick of It. I am early on the train tomorrow for my last ever lecture and am in lock in all weekend so I can finish the bloody thing.

Anyway - The Thick of It - Juvenile humour at it's best.

*hugs* I am so happy that this had a happy ending! That was very lovely of them to do!

It was dreadful - imagine feeling that you are a kitty-napper and then the cat is taken away by Christ knows who. Bingley is a beloved family member and it felt like I had put him down. It was very lovely of them to bring him back. They do have four other cats, two dogs and now kittens, so that might have been part of the reason. The guy was great and was was very grateful.

At least all's well and all that! *hugs*

Oh wow. So glad that the "old" owners gave him back! Smart and kind of them.

They were seriously lovely - both of us girls were weeping over Bingley who was a bit nonplussed about the whole thing.

What an epic cat Stevie must have been. I had a hissy, bitey feral cat called Tiggy, who was legitimately rehomed in my house. Once she stopped being a fish wife, she calmed down enough to chill out - would even want to have a non bitey Kitty tussle with our old mog - both now deceased). Both cats used to make social visits to the little old ladies who lived behind us. Lap of luxury too - roast chicken, prawns. I should have sent them out with a doggy (or rather a kitty) bag and snaffle some for me.

Bing looked like he had been to hell and back. Deposited at the vets then picked up by former owners, then brought home. Made a fuss of me this morning, which I appreciated.

What a shocker! Glad it had a happy ending for you and Bingley is home.

Not sure who is more relieved - us or the cat :-)

I am so glad you got a happy ending and got to keep your beautiful, adorable cuddle-puss!
I'm amused Bingley turned out to be a boy, anyway – I had wondered about 'her' from her name, and Mr Bingley is far more appropriate (I detested the novel, but as I recall the sister/s was/were unpleasant characters!)!

I am not into Jane Austin, but kinda realised who Bingley was and yes, there is a Lizzie and a Mr Darcy too. It's called all sorts - Bingle/Bobo etc. I think he responds to anyone with a sachet of Felix

He is a real beauty, anyway! You are lucky to be graced with his furry presence.

Lucky you and lucky cat to have you!

Thanks - relieved all round :-)
