I had to make the difficult decision to euthanise one of my beautiful burmese cats last week, 11 year old Putin who, had been living on the island with me since he was a kitten, along with his sister cat. Sadly, Putin was in the latter stages of skin cancer. Too upset to post anything last week, I wanted to remember him on my blog today.
This is the view from the cottage where I hold my workshops … until the weekend just gone that is. Sadly the gable of the herring shed, and the pier demolished with winds, waves and exceptionally high tides … very sad to see.
A National Geographic survey showed that sheep can recognise up to 50 other sheeps faces. They could also recognise up to 20 peoples faces over a 2 year period ….
Both of my pet sheep still remember me when I see them – These animals aren’t stupid – they’re simply timid.
Meet Bacchus … the little cat (at this stage) causing havoc with his elders !!
