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

Poorly kittens don't stay poorly for long, thanks to natural resilience and a helping syringe from Dr Very Young Vet. Pandora has found her appetite and the rudest of good health, as an almost unfortunate yellowhammer discovered this morning. I was able to shake the kitten until the bird escaped unharmed.
The Fearless Ones joined me for a wander in the woods this morning where much climbing and exploring was done (not by me), although neither of them gave chase when an unexpected hare was glimpsed hurrying through the undergrowth. That's the first one I've seen in the vicinity.
Maia was not with us. Pandora's vet smell has not yet dissipated so our confused black cat believes there's an intruder in The Rural Retreat, leading to much hissing and occasional cuffing of our tabby and, if she's not careful, a perfectly blameless Willow. Even Matchgirl and I have suffered Maia's displeasure.
There's still no sight of daytime martens (although there've been some mysterious daylight Nutella disappearances) but the first tree sparrow chicks have been observed and the first snap captured. I'll keep watching in hope of taking the perfect portrait.
