Yes!

Miss Bobby-Socks was inspired by the real life cat of author Jacqui Brown.  Here is a picture of her!

Her full name is Mrs Felicity Bobby-Socks, although she usually goes by her nickname, Softie.

Softie was adopted from the Animal Welfare League NSW when she was 21 months old, after she was surrendered by an elderly couple who could no longer take care of her.  She has been a part of Jacqui's family ever since!

Softie had been with Jacqui only a couple of weeks when Jacqui began imagining what fun and adventures her cat might have with the other cats in the neighbourhood - and the idea for Miss Bobby-Socks and her Friends was born!

Softie and Miss Bobby-Socks share the same birthday - 2nd September.
