Biscotte

Biscotte

I thought it time to introduce the fifth member of the Beaumont household, courtesy of an adorable photo taken by Susan & Paul during their return stay to ‘Annie’s House’.

Welcome to Biscotte, our dear European Tigré who we collected from the SPA, La Société Protectrice des Animaux in Angers.

A curious little fellow with a loud motor, a sweet, sweet nature and who is always looking for a spare lap to curl up on, which comes with plenty of tickles in tow.

Needless to say Biscotte is a much treasured member of our family household, in particular with Constance who, at 2 years old, has put herself  in charge of Biscotte’s welfare, mainly his food and water (under Mummy’s supervision).

Albeit we are presently unable to have more pets we continue to be active members of La Société Protectrice des Animaux, supporting the excellent work they do.
