The Clementine Chronicles

This is Clementine. She is a cat. She belongs to a friend of mine, Josephine.

Last year, Josephine and her husband went on a holiday to Europe and required someone to care for their apartment and Clementine. Someone responsible, diligent, trustworthy and capable of keeping a sentient life-form alive.

I was surprised as anyone when they asked me.

Nevertheless, come late August I found myself alone in an apartment staring down at my new housemate for the next month. The following is a recount of my writings to Josephine over the weeks that followed, which were the eventual inspiration for the name of this blog.

Some final context;

  • I had never before cared for a Cat, only dogs
  • Tyree is a mutual friend of ours who also came to stay a couple of weeks in






Screw you Clementine.
