HE'S only four years old, but Mr Tibbles the cat has already had enough adventures in his lifetime to write a book.
And his latest escapades have been written by his owner in a mini booklet to raise money for the cat rescue centre which recently helped him.
Before the tabby and white cat met Wendy Priestley and her husband Les, he was living rough and surviving on minimal scraps of food.
The couple, of Sutton St James, cared for the stray but chose to have him re-homed through a rescue centre as he didn't get on with their family cat, Sasha.

Despite being handed over to a loving family in Long Sutton, Mr Tibbles ventured 10 miles of rugged Fenland countryside - even crossing the A17 - back to Wendy and Les.
Now she has published a small booklet - titled The Cat That Came Back - about his adventures to raise money for P.J. Cat Rescue, in Long Sutton.

Wendy, an HGV driving instructor, said: "I couldn't believe Mr Tibbles was back in one piece when he first returned to our garden.
"He was missing for exactly five weeks and had lots of interesting stories to tell me about his adventures.
"Writing about them seemed the most suitable way to raise money for the cat rescue centre which helps so many strays."
While at the cat rescue, Mr Tibbles was given a health check, neutered and micro-chipped by Medivet in Long Sutton.
Wendy added: "We couldn't possibly have Mr Tibbles re-homed again and had to keep him.
"Sasha was rather dubious of his return but now tries to tolerate the new addition to our family."
Copies of the booklet are available at P.J. Cat Rescue Shop in High Street and the Long Sutton Medivet Branch for 50p.
Orders by post from P.J Cat Rescue must include a postal order for 50p and large stamped addressed envelope.
