This time last year we had no black and white fluffball (Humbug having gone walkabout).  Now we have two!  Meet Bughum, the Other Beast of Girton.  Note white face, 70s 'tache and matching set of short socks.

We first heard about him last year when he generated a lot of false Humbug sightings down on the Cambridge side of the Girton gap. The agronomy research people call him CUFcat because they think he comes from Cambridge Uni Farm, near the astronomy place, but that's closed down now so he must live somewhere else.  It seems he's lost his hunting grounds to North West Cambridge development and been displaced up here.  He and Leicester had quite a civilised encounter after which he was permitted to skirt the perimeter to access the bramble patch further up Huntingdon Road.  Not sure where he comes from but presume he has an ape somewhere who helps him keep his fluff tangle free.  Presume he's male based on size and wandering, probably neutered since Leicester was able to stare him down, but who knows what he's got inside the fluff?

For comparision, here is the real, one and only Humbug. Note black face and generally asymmetrical, hungover and confused look.


Poor Leicester probably thinks this is how normal cats look and he is the weird one.
