Hamish the Town Cat:
Meet Hamish McHamish, the Cat who has a Town. According to lore he is at least ten years’ old and he has an owner, only no one really knows who it is. Some say he has three owners: one who technically owns him, one who takes him to the vet, and one who feeds him. The truth is, everyone feeds him, everyone lets him into their home or shop (yes, even businesses!) to sleep, everyone greets him on the street. He has his usual haunts on South Street and Queen’s Gardens, but has been known to venture as far as North Street or even The Scores. The local newspaper runs regular ‘Hamish Sightings’ and people write in to express concern if they haven’t seen him in a while. The entire Town is his home. I am honoured to be one of his vassals.
