    This is Portia We got her from the Cats Protection League and because they have so many cats they named them by themes - she was part of a set named after cars, called Clio, Lexus and Porscha. We just changed the spelling so it was like the Shakespeare, although she's probably the least sophisticated cat in the world

    I have a black cat called Lexi, she was called Squeaky when we got her as a kitten but my childhood nickname is Squeak due to my high pitched cry as a baby, my parents still call me it a lot and I didn't want to have any confusion when the cat is called and I answer. So I changed her name to Lexi

    No we didn't. He came from a rescue centre in Bristol.

    He was one of only 2 left from a litter of 8 that were dumped on them. There was him (the runt of the litter) and one of his brothers who exactly the same in terms of shape but was pale brown, really odd for a basset hound cross.

    He is a lovely little dog though, is very nervy because we think he was abused by the family that dumped them all at the rescue centre. We've had him 2 months and he is only just getting brave enough to come up to you in the house. Outside he is OK, as soon as he is lying down he is fine but if he is wandering around the house he is terrified of people. He is finally getting over it a bit and is really coming out of his shell though.
