I visited St Austell for the first time recently, having skirted around it for years. Apart from super shops and 9 charity shops (I was in heaven), I was astonished and delighted by this beautiful wall mural.
It looked so real I very nearly went in and ordered a coffee!
It was commissioned by Cornwall Council from Parcsigns
Mrs H took these with a flip video camera and then made some stills from it for our post so the pictures are grainy - sorry on her behalf. We all wanted you to see them despite this because they are an IMPAWTANT milestone in our lives. This is an imposter cat covered in soot. We were walking pass our favourite window in Cornwall and SAW him. He just SAT there looking at us. We looked to Mrs H for advice.
... but she was just too busy getting her camera out - typical!
Darcy tried to paw Sooty but he refused to move
Undaunted he stared right back at us... the bare black faced CHEEK
... even with TWO of us he just stayed there and even took time out to groom!
It was perplexing.
When he eventually sneaked off, we looked for him every time we went pass our window but he never sat on the sill again. We have only ever seen one other cat, a ginger one.
We thought WE were the only two cats in the Universe!
