Phercad - the Maine Coon
Anna had been looking after Bear, a large and handsome Maine Coon,in loco parentis for her daughter for some years, and when he died, Anna was left with a cat-sized hole in her life, which was filled with a kitten - another black Maine Coon - called Phercad. Reason for the name ? Well, Phercad is one of the stars in the constellation Ursa Minor, the Little Bear, so it seemed appropriate somehow.
He is getting to be quite an old man now, but loves his life here on Orkney where he has a nice sunny spot on a windowsill where he can see what's going on and enjoy relaxing.
