Prestonpans traiRupert of Bankton Memorial 01/05/21 - 26/06/21

Rupert was my cat but he didnt like to stay home at Bankton, East Lothian, as evidently that was a bit boring.

Instead he liked to visit Prestonpand train station, where he used to go up to people miaowing repeatedly. This led memto start his own facebook page as he was regularly mistaken as a sad, lonely wee stray cat.

When the covid pandemic struck and “his people” no longer apprared on the paltform each day. He changed his hang out to the local Co-op, next to Prestonpand train station. Rupert quite enjoyed sleeping on the shelves in the Co-op but someone took umbridge at this and reported him to Environmental Health. This was a sad day but thankfully his other haunts were still open, ie East Coast Carpets, Links Vets, the local ambulance station aswell as the garage and local factories.

Rupert had a great but short life. He was adored by many.

We would like to fundraise to put up a memorial of him in the local area. Any excess funds raised will be divided between Lothian Cat Rescue (where he spent annight ince after a well meaning person handed himnin asa stray!) and Edinburgh Cat & Dog Home.

If you would like to donate in Ruperts memory that would be wonderful. Thank you c
