Damp Days For Outdoor Cats
by admin - 20:44 on 10 July 2012
So it rained. And it rained some more. And it rained again. And again. And Bess, who refuses to admit that we're not enjoying summer weather, spent most of the day curled up on the lawn, sleeping. In the rain.
The mad moggy didn't even try to find a sheltered spot for alfresco snoozing. She has a favourite place – such a favourite that's there's now a depression in the ground there – and that's where she was determined to stay, despite my entreaties to come indoors.
I suspect that she expected her food bowls to be put out, but as rainwater would have turned the contents to soup this didn't seem such a good idea.
She admitted defeat at around 5.30, came in for food then transferred her sleeping activities to the sofa, but a couple of hours later she returned to the rain-lashed garden. An hour later she came back indoors to curl up inside her comfy cat pyramid for the first time in months. Sometimes a moggy doesn't know what do do.
Marten Update: Mrs Marten has been a rare sight this spring and summer, so it was good to see her two nights ago, a couple of hours before Young Marten called. I saved a couple of snaps – nothing special but I've got so few of her this year. Maybe she's checking out the area, ready to show new kits around, and the best snaps are about to happen. You never know.
Silly old Bess!!!
