Rosie’s new blog

Our dog Rosie now has her own blog! From  Life with a Neurotic Cat . . . So why would I, a dog, want to have my own blog? I suppose I could say “because I can”, but it’s more than that. I’m a smart and opinionated dog, and since Lisa (female human) won’t let […]

Living with an anorexic cat

The bane of Lucy’s life

I haven’t had the energy to write much this week. So today is another photo day. The little bird below (a Fiscal or Common Shrike) is the bane of our cat’s life. It lives in a tree in our front garden, and often Lucy just needs to set a paw outside in the front, and […]

Sleeping cat

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments — but I never heard of one that suffered from insomnia. —Joseph Wood Krutch (1893-1970)

Photo day: African cat

Willie felt that the photos I used in yesterday’s Catch and Release post didn’t do Lucy justice. So here is one of his favourites.

Catch and Release

Lucy, the cat, is a born “mouser”.  When we first moved into our current house, we had a big problem with rats, mice and moles. At the time we had an elderly cat, who had long since given up hunting. Then Lucy came to live with us. As a kitten she practised stalking and pouncing […]
