Two Headed Cat

Artist's dramatisation by Quinton Winter
I saw this startling mutation at the end of the summer on the way to a meeting.

I glanced left, then right to cross St Peter's Road, and there, in the distance, on a window ledge was a cat. A black cat. A two headed black cat. Unfortunately, it was a rare occasion when I was out without the family camera, and so I was unable to record the sighting... but, just for you I took a moment this dark evening to put my memory to paper and bring you a sketch of the two headed cat of Whitstable.

Is there too much wifi in these dark streets causing genetic defects? Too many TV antennas? Is there Crabzilla crab meat in the Kitekat? Was I seeing things? Or was it simply the moggie's refection in the window?

If anyone else has seen this "cat", or if you're the owner, please get in touch. I'd love to know some details. Such as, does one head do the breathing, and the other head the eating? And does it have two separate pussycat personalities?
The full drawing showing multiple TV antennas.

Detail of the cat.

As ever, leave your comments below.

#Crabzilla conquers the world!

I imagine that this time last week Crabzilla was bobbing gently in Whitstable Bay, quiet and calm, safe in the anonymous ocean, nibbling on a few trailers of oysters....

Then, the unthinkable happened... crab fame happened! Crabzilla was propelled around the world like a stone across a pond.

From page 26 of The Sunday Express, to the cover of the Daily Star.... to Loose Women on telly, Metro, Kent Messenger, Mail Online, Gawker, Independent, news websites in Australia, Germany, Serbia, Norway, New York, Huffington Post, India, Brazil, Sweden, allsorts of places all over the world too numerous to mention....then to Japan's Morning Bird show on AsahiTV, and last night to BBC's Have I got News For You!
Its even spawned a (fake) Crabzilla on Twitter!

A weird week indeed.... I hope for Crabzilla's sake its all gone quiet again. Keep your eyes peeled for signs of the beautiful Crabzilla. If you happen to see any evidence, or have a story to tell then please get in touch. I may post it on here, or it could be featured in an upcoming exhibition.

Crabzilla in the Sunday Express!

In these dark days its a lovely thing that Whitstable's giant crab has received nationwide attention in the Sunday Express..... read all about it on their website if you missed the paper version.

Have you had an encounter with a giant crab either in Whitstable or elsewhere? Or know someone who has? If so, get in touch. Eye witness reports, sketches or photographs are always welcome.

Please check out an earlier post on Whitstable's giant crab here.

The Stick Man

Was this poor mythical creature disorientated during the recent storm? 
then, confused and soggy, hit by a car? 
and then, left flat as a leaf in the road?
I don't know. All I can do is provide photographic evidence. 
What do you think?
Please leave comments below.
