The Golden Retriever And The New Kitten.


 

No not a new new name for a posh pub like The Slug and Lettuce.   Or even  the Bird and Baby (Eagle and Child). I am reading a book about The Inklings at the moment.  

Here's a new arrival to the smallholding  this week.  She's adorable and Rosie the Golden Retriever thinks it's her baby.  

That mean we will now have 3 cats and a kitten.  We will pay to get her injected and neutered like the other ones and that should keep any rodents at bay.  

When my dad was a lad growing up in rural Ireland would trap rats and take their tails to the council office and the officials would count their tales  or even tails😊 and give him a couple of bob  for his rat killing work

Ours get tins of cat food, milk and delicious treats.  

Aren't they beautiful?

    3. It would take more than one lion to consume Johnson's pink and porky body. Mind you, they probably wouldn't like the taste.

    1. I hope that YP Corner is not where the ladies of the night hang out touting for "business".
