Master Bo'sun Lionel Flea - He is the Very Cat for Me!


London Walks guide Isobel is embarking on some of her Rep Walks in the next few weeks. Here we find her ruminating on cats, inspired by this ‘andsome specimen here…





I think C the City (9th Feb 10.45, St Paul's exit 2) is the only walk of mine where you are guaranteed to see a cat, but tales of cats (and dogs) have a way of creeping into other walks. As several of my repertory walks are in local, residential areas - Denmark Hill and Camberwell 15th March 10.45, Denmark Hill Station; Princes and Paupers  29th March, 10.45, Kennington tube; Walworth Old and New 14th June, 10.45 Kennington tube; Viva Vauxhall 1st February 10.45, Vauxhall exit 2- to name a few, cats quite often make unscheduled appearances.

I can't promise you'll see the gorgeously fluffy Toby in Kennington, but I can certainly direct you to where Buster will be making himself comfortable in Walworth.

Now there's a cat who knows how to get his life organised.

Bo'sun (pictured) will be shut indoors when I walk past our home on the Walworth Old and New walk just in case he decides to try and join us. I can always bring photos though!  And I have a range of greetings cards for sale featuring cats.
