is it just a coincidence that the cat from the flour mill is white? :-)

And often deaf... I wonder why that is!

I'll have to talk to the miller. I don't think that he is deaf. He is about eight years old, and has just has sinusitis!!
He wasn't a happy cat then.
genetics I suppose, Cro, as practically all gingers are Toms and tabbies are Queens

Cats are so amusing.

I'm Looking forward to going to St Ffagons Museum one of these days.

When I saw the first photo I actually hadn't realised it was not a porcelain cat!
Yes you are correct that white cats can be deaf but that is usually linked to if they have blue eyes as well and it is definitely a genetic fault. They are also prone to cancer coz their pale skin burns easily when they bask in the sun - as cats do.

A floury white cat seems to be just right for a miller!

I just watched an episode of Antiques Roadshow filmed in this place...it looks very intriguing! Didn't see the mill cat though!
