Mr Potts is based on a rescued boy named Hannibal.
This ginger ninja was bottle fed as a tiny orphaned kitten and joyfully terrorised any visitors to our family home. Slumber parties were his annual highlights – he would perch on the top of the door and leap onto any unsuspecting little girls below.
Squeals of terror fuelled his desire to latch onto bare legs or claw his way around and around beanbags, waiting to bite any overhanging feet or arms.
