Damp, misty October has arrived, time to honour the household with my presence and give you a cat’s eye view of the SESAW news.
Mother has been kept busy with a parade of wildlife casualties including blackbirds, jackdaws, pigeons, an owl and a baby squirrel. Most of them are now happily released into their natural habitat, much to my relief.
I was particularly pleased about another departure when that pesky Billy found a foster home. I’ve had to circumnavigate the garden for months to avoid meeting the active old Jack Russell cross, made me cross I can tell you!
I’m very worried about Erica and her five kittens. My poor pregnant friend was dumped to have her babies in the wilderness. They were very nervous when the picture was taken but are now coming around nicely and just need some kindness and TLC in new homes. I appeal to all humans, please have your cats neutered so this doesn’t happen to other unfortunates. It makes us much nicer to live with and I’m sure Kenneth would ask the same for all dogs.

The sun is finally out, hopefully warming my throne above the haystack so that’s all from me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.
