A Cat’s Tale… 🐈 #internationalcatday
Out of the blue, over Nine years ago a little black cat arrived at Shackletons and we’re pleased to say has been with us ever since...
We have no idea where he came from, but because he was so cute we were completely taken with him. Nobody claimed him so he became our resident store pet and we decided to name him Archie.
A while later, during a trip to the vets for a health check, we were informed that - HE was actually a SHE! Maybe we could pronounce it Arch-she now! 😂🥰
Initially she wasn’t overly keen on being stroked or handled, but as time passed and her confidence grew, Archie is now always more than ready for a customer cuddle or two.
She regularly receives gifts and treats from customers and staff, and always does really well at Christmas time with cat lovers turning up with presents and titbits.
You can usually find Archie strutting around the Potting Shed, or snoozing on our delivery boxes.
Happy International Cat Day! 🐱
