Missing from the Menagerie

We’ve lost 3 furry members from the menagerie in the last 18 months. Each time my heart has broken.

Last week our youngest cat, Ollie, just didn’t come home one day. He fancied himself as a bit of a tiger and we think he may have taken on the wrong snake.

He left us as suddenly as he joined us. He walked into our home a bedraggled, scrawny stray and left us as a contented, much loved Puss-in-Boots look alike.  It gives me some comfort knowing that we were able to give him a quality life.

I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that he’s not coming home so today I’m dedicating my not-so Wordless Wednesday to this cheeky furball.

The day he walked into our house & decided to keep us.

 He quickly became part of the furniture.

 He was a great playmate…
…who had to be the centre of everything

Ollie, you were much loved…

and will be very missed xx

Wordless Wednesday

Introducing yet another member of The Menagerie and one of the many early risers around here.

I’m just glad I’m not responsible for feeding this one. He loves to fish the frogs out of our pool and the spiders off the fence! He’s always freaking my husband out by swooping down and landing right next to him (which of course I think is hilarious).
