Background: The man who made the Goon Show gets a microphone to himself at the Siamese and Short-haired Cat Club's Show at Parramatta this weekend. It's Spike Milligan, and even at a cat show he's still getting laughs.
Black cats for luck, and this one a champion. But as always the big attractions are the kittens, and Siamese kittens have a charm that's all their own. This trio was judged best litter of the show.
The grown cats draw the connoisseurs - and Siamese cats are worth money. They're treated with care. Still not everyone's an expert. Spike Milligan told the children "I don' known much about cats except that they go to "MIAOW". And there were times when some of the cats looked as if they didn't know all that much about the Goons.
But in the end Spike Milligan shows he's a catlover too. Or is he? It's all in the mind, you know.
