Animal Attraction

I appear to be attracting our neighbour's pets...

When Mum and I got back from shopping, the black and white cat was in our front garden. This is quite a common occurence and she's a really friendly cat so I made a fuss of her for a while and in the process of doing so discovered she had a tick. Fortunately we still have a tick remover so I got rid of it for her and she ran off. I was kinda worried that she'd avoid me after that, but I saw her again later and once again she laid down and gave me the Haughty Cat Look as if to say "yes, I will allow you to stroke me." So I did.

But even better than that was the pony. I went down the field and gave him an apple. Now normally when I go to see him he just stays put when I leave, but this time he followed me. He stopped at the top of the field and I thought he was going to stay there, but a few minutes later he came up into the garden and walked all the way up to the top lawn. So, being the softy that I am, I gave him some carrots before heading back up the steps to the house. Then when I looked out again he was standing right at the bottom of the steps looking up. I think he would have actually followed me inside if he could!

I guess he really liked that apple. Yesterday I gave him some gooseberries from our gooseberry bush and he just spat them out. Silly pony!

    Yes, this is another post about decluttering. Probably of interest to absolutely no one but myself but this is my journal and I want to keep writing…

  • Oscar Dress Report 2021

    This was a bit trickier this year cos I didn't have such strong feelings about a lot of the dresses. And I feel like I could still change my mind…

  • Oscars 2021

    It's (belated) Oscars time! As usual I recorded the ceremony and made sure not to look at any spoilers before I watched it. Part of me wishes I could…
