Video of the hero of the day, brave Oakley my 3 legged cat

Oakley is somewhat in the doghouse after yet again leaving a deposit on the doormat and so today both he and his friend Tara are confined to the kitchen with myself. No run of house is allowed for either. But Oakley, who now weighs a disgraceful 9 llbs, has just three legs and is also known as Benefits Street becuase he dos nothing all day other than eat, sleep and watch trash TV with the Mrs, is the hero of the day.

For Oakley spotted another cat - almost as large as him wander into our garden. The normally fearless Tara did nothing. And so the old boy hopped off the sofa, hopped out through the cat flap and hopped into the centre of the back yard staring defiantly at the intruder. 

The intruder fled. Oakley hung around outside for a few minutes savouring this unexpected triumph and then hopped back inside and launched himself onto the sofa. Such bravery earned him a couple of "dreamies" cat snacks and then it was soon back to sleep. A video of our brave warrior is below.
