Jim Willis

Jim Willis is an extraordinary man. He writes the most exquisite stories and articles in a bid to get people to understand the minds of the pets and animals that they share their lives with.

Jim is a fierce advocate against cruelty of any kind to any animal and it is because of his no-kill policy that he shares his life with several different species of animal.

Jim writes with a passion borne of righteous anger against the injustice and abject cruelty that humans wreak on their defenceless animal companions.

On January 25th 2004 a tragedy tore Jim’s world and life apart. His house burnt down killing 14 of his beloved animals. Only six survived.  Jim lost everything in that fire and since then he has been slowly rebuilding his life again.

Sadly, in January 2019, I learned that Jim had passed away in September, 2018.  I knew he had been very ill, and from our correspondence, he fought his battle with great bravery and a wonderful sense of humour.  His gentle spirit and generous soul will be sorely missed by all those who knew him and loved him.  We here at the Daily Mews office will never forget his many surprise gifts and his kind encouragement when I struggled with writing assignments.

RIP you wonderful man.  You are so loved, but will never be forgotten.

The Very Best Toy for Cats

"Of all the [cat] toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a noise when you jump on it."
