I can’t really claim to be an animal lover generally and cannot recall ever having a pet in any of the three houses I’ve lived in, although I do remember finding a rabbit in a small hutch leaning up against a brick wall in my garden over 30 years ago when a girlfriend moved in temporarily for a few weeks in those mad 90s days !! And I have to confess I really DO NOT like dogs at all (to put it mildly!) as anyone who knows me well will tell you, but cats … yes … I like them, no idea why, and they appear to like me too. Both Nathan’s scrawny little purring machines always make a bee line for me when I go to pick him up for football and Ann’s big furry lump Jasper often spends our TV watching time cosily nestled on my lap.

I certainly wouldn’t like one of my own to look after (I am way too independent !) but always enjoy seeing photos of my friends’ cats when they post them on Facebook – and over the last couple of weeks I have actually been sent messeages / emails specifically to show me extra cute snaps ! Molly & Amy are regular “listeners” on the Kent Side but are just two members of a whole tribe that Ros sent me a “team photo” of last week and shortly after my old school friend Lorraine became an “auntie” to two tiny little kittens that had arrived at her son and daughter-in-law’s house and couldn’t resist sending me some super cute shots of them …

Yes, I like cats, but I LOVE soul music – and you can hear lots of it this weekend if you check out last Monday’s show via “Listen Again” or wait till 5pm and hear the ‘Repeat Play’ on air at Gateway 97.8FM. Hmmm, I might have to see if I can come up with a “feline” based ‘Soul Connection’ one week and combine the two !!
