CHERYL GIBBS: Inspirational Katie touched the hearts of so many in her short life

Have your say

Moving home can be stressful and sometimes, in all the chaos, perfectly rational people can do some pretty funny things.

I found this out recently when I began packing in anticipation for my relocation back to my home turf of Fareham.

I will definitely miss the Southsea seaside, Pompey peeps and the Tenth Hole tearooms, but home is definitely where the heart is.

Anyway, there I was stuffing towels into a cardboard box, taping it up and shoving it in a corner.

Only later did I realise I hadn’t seen my cat Aurora for a while.

I searched high and low. Nothing – until I heard a mewing coming from the said box.

Yep, I’d parcelled her up and she has yet to forgive me!
