“Having had numerous cats before, when I saw first saw Frodo, I got ‘this feeling,’ and those are the animals we adopt,” Robyn explains.

“Although he was called Frodo, we promptly changed his name to Eeek because it suited his personality so well. He was deemed a ‘special needs’ kitty due to one congenitally deformed leg, and we knew we could handle that. Particularly shy as he slowly adjusts to living with us (all but one of our cats have been formerly feral), he’s bonded very strongly with one of our other cats and they are preciously and positively inseparable.

“Eeek has the silliest face and the most endearing facial expressions. He’s truly adorable. He always looks shocked and has this inquisitive head-tilt that’s so impossibly cute I just want to squeeze him! As active as he is adorable, he likes chasing after feather wands and those round plastic trays with the balls inside, but he’s not a great fan of chasing balls or laser pointers.

“When we’re sitting on the couch or lying down in bed, he’ll approach us in search of attention. He’ll then let us pet him and rub his ears, chin and tummy. In return, Eeek will purr loudly and rub up against us. As for sleeping arrangements: he sleeps wherever he wants.”
