A cat that looks like the deceased actress Anne Kirkbride better known as Deidre Barlow from Coronation Street has been found wandering the streets in Newry.
The female cat, which wears glasses and smokes Benson & Hedges, was discovered outside the Santander Bank on Margaret Square. The woman who found her, Sheila Smyth, told Newry Spud:
“I was just coming back from mass in the Cathedral when I heard this high-pitched voice saying ‘Here Ken’. My husband’s called Ken so obviously, I turned around. When I looked, there was this cat sat there, puffing on a feg. I was so disturbed that I slightly soiled my underwear – and I’d only just put them on special that morning.”
The cat is now with Newry NSPCA and will be re-homed as soon as possible.
