Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, memories of a much-missed moggie, three adventurous new cats, a camera, a computer and a garden filled with wildlife
The Great Scavenger Hunt
by admin - 22:43 on 23 July 2013
The fine weather has inspired a rash of neighbourhood barbecues, filling the air with the scent of charcoal and scorched sausage. This was of great interest to Maia.
The Great Black Hunter, who's not averse to scavenging when her dish is empty, returned to The Rural Retreat late in the evening two nights ago carrying a slice of ham, possibly sneaked from the plate of a dozing diner but more likely dropped by a careless one. A prouder puss has never been seen.
Willow was out on the prowl today and brought home the first lizard we've seen for some time. A daring rescue was performed and a snap taken of the dazed victim to prove that she (I think it was a she) survived her ordeal.
Moggies were less cocky when an amble up the lane was cut short by the appearance of three horses (and riders) at the top of it. The cats had never before seen creatures of such a size and retreated with no pretence of bravery. However, The Pride was back in the lane today so its members have suffered no mental scars. The plucky pusses.
Band Update: My debut with The Fumes will happen a day later than planned because the gig scheduled for Friday, in Dingwall, has been called off. Shame. So I'll return to the stage on Saturday this weekend at the Brora Gala dance. I hope the gig goes better than the rehearsal...
