A not-very-exciting event happened this morning just after breakfast.
Charlie was sitting amidst the debris of dismantled pots and plants in the corner of the
garden that we don't talk about, when he noticed something
and immediately informed Pepper.
Pepper was actually examining a gargoyle at the time
as she swore it had moved during the night, but
left it to go and see what Charlie had found.
Mrs P came to have a look at Charlie's discovery but
decided the remains of breakfast were more interesting so
went back inside to demolish everyone's food.
And what was the cause of the excitement?
This little cat
who was peeping out from behind our neighbour Janet's fence.
I zoomed in on the photo hence the dodgy quality.
As you can see, a truly terrifying beast! It was
probably actually wondering how it could make a graceful
exit without four manic cats trying to beat it to a pulp.
It needn't have worried.
Pepper was the only one courageous enough to go and
Charlie and Posky, ever the brave man-cats
encouraged her from the safety of the gate.
'We'll be right behind you!'
However all that happened was a staring contest.
It was akin to one of those Japanese Samurai films,
only in this one everyone went home after
about ten minutes as they were bored.
And just some brief news, Mrs Pod had a long lasting antibiotic jab at the vets last Wednesday and is feeling much better now. They also tested her kidneys and the results were excellent. We still have to decide how we can try and keep her ears free of infection long term but she's going back for a check-up next week so hopefully we'll be able to discuss it then. She thanks everyone for their healing thoughts and purrs!
