The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

A further photograph

Lady Bracknell promises to desist after this one and to return to other matters before those of her readers who are wholly indifferent to cats desert her blog permanently. She is unsure how the editor's mobile phone got into shot...

Oh! She's lovely! And with a formidable bearing, too-- clearly not a cat to be denied. Am most pleased for Her Ladyship and her new friend. :)

This is one beautiful cat. Who, I suspect, already knows that she has landed in the cream.

My tom cats were most disappointed to be told that she hasn't got her own mobile phone!

If Caspar is making Lady Bracknell happy, that's got to be a good thing. I hope you have a lovely time together :)

Caspar is one cool and froody cat. Kismet!

Oh, she is such a pretty little poofkele! And a very lucky girl, as are you. You are lucky to have found each other.

Without knowing you, of course, I am very happy for you. I am experiencing what you described in an earlier post, the absolute emptiness of coming home to a catless house after, for me, 19 years. It's truly awful. I'm so glad you've found/been given such a lovely alternative.

Caspar looks like she does not hold with any nonsense - it is just as well your horrid neighbour has recently departed.

Congratualtions on what I hope will be a long and happy partnership for you both!

Caspar is described on the animal rescue site as "a strong madam with an iron will to survive". A description which might be used with equal accuracy of Lady Bracknell herself...

Of course, what was not mentioned in the description is that, once Caspar has decided to be a person's friend, she will smother them with cat kisses when they return home at the end of the day.

Lady Bracknell does not believe anyone has ever been so pleased to see her.

One is tempted to hope that Caspar's former people stumble across this blog and see both the glorious pictures and the splendid new home of the one whom they so callously abandoned in her hour of need.

Not so that their conscience may be assuaged or that they should find any satisfaction but in order that they should feel suitably ashamed and humiliated.

I do not for a moment subscribe to the ill-conceived sentimental anthropomorphist nonsense that cats are people, the descendants of gods, or even that they have equal rights. However I do suggest that anyone who mistreats, injures or abandons one deserves the worst punishment imaginable.

That is a great picture. She is obviously at home on her royal cushion. Congratulations on your new companion.

She is stunning Lady Bracknell. Enjoy her and love her with the same open abandon as she does you.

'A strong madam with an iron will to survive'! What a great description. Caspar does look lovely, and I'm very pleased to know both of you are getting on so well.
