Well, Dinah does give us breakfast first and I like to hang about in the kitchen while she makes The Man’s lunch.
Yes, sometimes it’s worth the wait. If we sit politely and don’t snatch. But if she’s just fiddling about with mangoes (which we don’t eat) then we go outside.
This morning I brought her a present. Silly woman didn’t turn on the laundry light and she thought I’d found a piece of plastic!
She calls it a “slough.” I think if you click it you can see the eye holes and nostrils! Dinah reckons it’s from a carpet snake and I think she was quite pleased with it, although she muttered something about it being like a condom. And she also told me that its owner is probably big enough to do me some damage.
Well, not to be outdone, I had to find something for her. So I crept through the just-dawn garden, stealthy as only a cat can be…and caught one of these which the Wiki page calls a Valanga. I call ’em crunchy!
Ed’s note: the damned thing was a big female and I was more intent on removing it before the house was trashed so no photos!
I missed that! Pity, cos they are fun to chase, even if we can’t always catch them. But I’m sure it will be in the garden somewhere.
The herb pots would be a good place to look! She’ll reward us if we do catch it!
We have an update on our possum. No photos yet, because Dinah doesn’t want to scare them, but Mr. Possum has gone and now there is a Mrs. Possum in that space behind the tool board.
Yes, and she has a junior possum! Still a “pocket possum,” but Dinah saw it on her back yesterday and says soon it will be out of the pouch and learning all the things it needs to know.
And that’s about all we have to tell you. Because of all the rain and storms things here are very damp and you-know-who is getting a bit cross because her papers are taking a long time to dry.
But everyone is happy that we have had such good rain. Now, I think I’ll bang on the pantry door. (That’s my signal for “crunchies, please!”) 😉
