The Boys…

One of their favourite spots after a hectic mad chase round the apartment….

The Boys...

We’ve aquired a new kitten. Merlin. He and the rest of his litter were found in a box, covered with rubbish, waiting for the rubbish men. What some people can bring themselves to do never ceases to amaze me. I mean, let the sodding animal shelter have them if nothing else. But the rubbish men? Abusive words are itching to be written, but I will refrain, not that these morons deserve any less….

Anyway, the good news is, they seem to be getting on more and more, with Mojo acting like the big boss, tolerant of the new upstart, bounding around and nuzzling up against him in his basket. Until, he’s had enough, whereby he pins him down by the throat, amazingly, with no serious injury.

Speaking of the cats, I found this video we did, of Mojo at the fishtank. As with all fishing, it requires a little patience….

Now I just need to catch Merlin at it too. As I type, he’s bouncing round the tank in a similar fashion, as the fish glide obliviously up and down…..

Rescue…

In nearly four years, we’ve never managed to get close to one of these little critters. Until now….

Chipmunk....

As she was checking out the recent crop plantation, the missus spotted Mojo, on our deck, not moving, not responding to her calls, simply staring at something. On closer inspection, she found this fella, well and truly tangled in the pile of netting we’d left for the strawberries.

He wasn’t moving, the net wrapped tightly round his tail and back legs and it took a few minutes of careful "surgical operations" to snip the net with scissors freeing him.

He didn’t fight, he didn’t scratch and he didn’t bite her, which was a surprise. Cornered, these things will go for you so I’ve been told.

But then, he didn’t say thanks either…. just jumped down and legged it! I’m sure that isn’t what’s supposed to happen. I know, I saw it in a Disney film….
