Cat Pub And An Oil Tanker.

Domino is very thirsty at the moment.  He's even drinking from the dogs paddling pool.  It's  a good idea to make pet pubs in this unbelievable sizzling hot weather.  



An oil tanker sailing with a full load of oil past my Hypericum shrub in the garden.  I grew that shrub from one of my cuttings.
 

My blog title would be a good name for a Prog Rock band.

  1. The poor pets must be sweltering in their fur coats.
    Did the tanker driver give you a wave as they passed by?

    The poor pets need lots of pubs and shade with this heat wave JayCee. I don't know if the tanker driver waved but funnily enough I have met the tug pilot.

  3. All the cats here have she'd so much fur they look kilos lighter. Everyone leaves water out for them but they seem to prefer the dirty water at the bottom of a pot plant tray.

  4. Hi Linda. We took the dog for a trim and shampoo and nails cut the other day. I think they like dirty water because they can't see their own reflection.

  5. We bought an old round feeding trough at an antiques fair years ago, very heavy, possibly for pigs, and keep that full of water. The result is that our garden is now on the 'route' for every cat in the neighbourhood as well as lots of birds. We put some large pebbles in the bottom so the little birds have something to stand on. Gives us lots to look at!

  6. Do you mean Northsider or Cat Pub and Oil Tanker for the band name? Northsider would be a good folk-rock band I think - like Lindisfarne.

  7. It sounds like a pig feeding trough the veg artist. They originally had metal bars across the top of them. Great way of attracting domestic pets and wildlife.

  8. The bike shed would be another good name for a band. Lindisfarne are a great band with some classic tracks like Meet Me On The Corner.., Fog On The Tyne..?

    1. The Bike Shed would be a good name for a place to store bikes. Behind it you could snog or smoke Woodbines.

    2. Behind The Bike Shed would be a good name. " Can I have species on your Park Drive Headmistress?"

  9. FROM THE DECK OF THE "SPIRIT OF IRAN" OIL TANKER
    AKTHAR: (Looking through binoculars) Look there Farad! On The Sheep Shed Peninsula! I swear that that is a hypericum shrub.
    FARAD: Let me see... Isn't it gorse Akthar? Oh, there's a man there. I think he is...Yes he is! He's having a widdle.
    AKTHAR These natives. They are so uncivilised. Thank Allah that we live in Iran.
