How To Smuggle Your English Cat into Mexico

I can't remember who made the original decision, I think it was me. It must have been me if I think about it now, because I suggested to both Marie and Henry that we should have a ship's cat, one that was grey to match the colour decor of our boat. It was a joke of course, I never expected either of them to take it seriously... but you should never make jokes like that around a pair of dedicated cat lovers.

Almost immediately I was inundated with internet links to cuddly little grey kittens. Dozens of them from all around the UK, from Inverness in Scotland to someplace I'd never heard of way off in Cornwall. Before I could say 'Yikes, here comes Officer Dibble' both Marie and Henry singled out a really cute looking male down in Ramsgate, a harbour town on the south coast of England... a very nice little sea port but quite a long distance to travel. Henry argued that with Ramsgate being a harbour and close to the sea any cat from there would already have its sea legs, which was a vague argument in which I did see some logic. Marie disagreed entirely, but she just wanted to cuddle a little grey kitten to sit on her lap.

So off we travelled down to Ramsgate... just to take a look of course because I already knew this was a really stupid idea...
