A cat of our acquaintance is called "Cake" by us. We have since learned that the people across the road with whom he spends most of his time call him Garfield. Cake came by for a chat and a bite to eat about an hour ago and then left.

His name is a trilingual pun. That should be a big enough clue if you know that we presently live in La Palma, a Canarian island which is part of Spain.
