Every neighbourhood has a ginger tom cat. Ol' Ginge is an occasional visitor who either makes himself at home on the outdoor furniture or likes to parade around or roll over on the warm ground as if he owns the joint. He is no slinker but has a square shouldered stance most of the time and is proud of his position as dominant male. Only once has he ever come close enough for a pat and tickle under his chin. When heading off down the driveway after a visit, his tail is held aloft, displaying what looks like enough amo to populate an entire city.
