Trish, the lady who ably takes care of and trains (i) my cat when I need to be absent from home, is presently minding a property not far from Dismal Swamp. The owners are away for a couple of weeks, leaving their seven Ragdoll cats (ii), assorted chickens and chicks, a large garden and yard for Trish to manage. After being there for a couple of hours and trailing along after her as she did the chores, I came home a weary person!
I have rallied enough to post a few photos of the livestock. I ate all of the fresh vegetables I scored from the garden, so you’ll just have to use your imagination there.
Although there are seven cats in the house, only one could be found, and deigned to pose for a milli-second.
Now, I get to do footnotes. Just like university days again.
(i) it doesn’t take me long to undo all the good training Trish has done with Minx.
(ii) yes, that’s seven Ragdoll cats, and they all live indoors. They have one of those catios built onto the side of the house, so they can get fresh air and exercise out there.
This image from a Google search show the undeniable adorableness of this breed of cat.
