Paddington's new look

This is what happens when you chase bees into dusty corners of the cat shelter; you end up with a fetching mask of cobwebs.

You’ll be delighted to know that the bee was released, both for its safety and for that of the naughty cats who were trying to eat it! And, although we decided that the new look made it much easier to distinguish Paddington from his cobweb-free brother, Puzzle, he did sit still long enough in the end to have his face wiped.

Beautiful Paddington and Puzzle both need loving homes. They are adorable and friendly... so why are they still at Woodland Nook?
