This charming film clip from 1953 is of an audition for a black cat to perform on the West End stage. The role isn’t very demanding and there are no lines to learn. The pay is £3 per week plus food and milk. The turnout of hopefuls would match any human casting!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

For over thirty years I worked in British primary education as a class teacher and then as head teacher of four different schools. I retired early about ten years ago and have developed an interest in e-publishing as well as writing. In addition to my own books, I've published several novels written by my husband, Michael Murray. These include the best selling detective novel "A Single To Filey: a DCI Tony Forward novel". When not writing and e-publishing I enjoy family history, reading, gardening, country walks, music, films etc. A diagnosis of advanced colorectal cancer in mid-2017 was followed by 30 months of chemotherapy and two major operations in 2020. Our wonderful NHS has put me well on the road to recovery and I'm hoping to be cancer free for many years to come. I'm everlastingly grateful to my family and friends, especially my husband Michael, for their love and support.
