MARMALADE, the mischievous moggy with the insatiable appetite, has made his bed in one Ipswich home - and he's certainly lying in it.
More than a week after the cunning cat wandered past an array of other pets and into a house on Glamorgan Road, nobody has come forward to claim him.
And in the meantime, the cat, nicknamed Marmalade by the children of current 'owner' Karen Plumstead, has made himself even more at home.

Since he was featured in The Evening Star on Saturday , Karen and partner Nick, both 37, have had a few enquiries over Suffolk's famous feline.
But nobody seems to know just where Marmalade's true home is.

Karen said: "We've had a couple of phone calls, but nothing so far has lead us to Marmalade's owner.
"One lady phoned to say she would like to have him if we didn't find the owner and another person phoned to say well done to us for taking him in.
"A third old lady phoned to say she had lost a female cat – but Marmalade is well and truly male."
Without an apparent owner, Karen said Marmalade seems to have made it his intention to become part of the furniture.
"He's made his bed and he's certainly lying in it! He's still eating so much and everytime I go over to the fridge he jumps up in anticipation.
"He's curled up in front of the oven right now as there's a joint of beef in there. He's looking very hopeful!"
Karen said Marmalade had found himself a temporary home with the other animals until further notice.
Apart from Marmalade, the couple has one dog, two cats, 14 chickens, three rabbits, two guinea pigs, one gerbil and numerous fish.
"We will continue to look after him until somebody comes forward. We know that we would be anxious if we had lost one of our cats and that is why we are looking after him.
"He is only two or three years old and has been neutered. Somebody has been looking after him and it's not as if he is a stray. The whole point is to try and find his real owners."
