FWIW, I sometimes called Smudge (the neighbour's black nad white cat also
shown in my photos on flickr) 'Bustopher Jones'. In his younger days he
was 'remarkably fat' and had a 'coat or fastidious black' with 'white spats'
Yes 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' is one of the few non-technical
books I own...
