Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running
All Quiet on the Feline Front

A little more feline posturing occurred today, but on the whole Bess and Spider got on better. It helped that the new girl spent all day downstairs, where at the moment she's confined, and Bess chose to pass most of her day on our bed or in the garden.
During her spell outdoors our indignant puss watched – but did nothing – while one of Mr Pheasant's three wives blundered around the lower branches of her favourite willow tree. They're chunky creatures and our cat is not much bigger. Discretion is the better part of valour.
No pine marten of any size has been seen since Master Marten's morning call two days ago. The Nutella has remained untouched too, apart from that taken by the woodpeckers. Mr W has developed a taste for chocolate to match that of his mate.

I put peanut butter out today, and an egg, in the hope of enticing mustelids back into The Rural Retreat's green acres, but the only four-legged creature seen to clamber on the garden gate was Romeo.
Peanut butter may have been of interest but closer proximity to the bird feeders was more in his mind. The birds aren't daft and stayed beyond his reach.

Band Update: Three days after our replacement singer quit, two possible replacement replacements have been discovered. Monkey Bones will rock again. Eventually.
