RIP Sir Patrick Moore

All of us here at Hubble and Hattie were very saddened to hear the sad news yesterday that the great Sir Patrick Moore had passed on, with Ptolemy, his one remaining cat, by his side.

It was an honour and a joy to work with Patrick on one of his last books – Miaow! Cats really are nicer than people! – his very personal account of the cats with whom he shared his life.

Patrick was an inspiration; a lovely man, and a true animal lover.

In March 2012 we recorded this YouTube interview with Patrick at his house in Selsey, West Sussex, at the end of which he expresses the hope that he will one day be reunited with his beloved cat, Jeannie, who died earlier this year.

Dear Patrick, we are comforted by the thought that you and Jeannie are together again now.
