The bird we rescued...

Dickens the cat decided to bring us yet another gift, this time a little bird: for a minute or so it was mayhem in the kitchen, a lot of running around, chasing the cat, trying to get to the bird before the cat did, small feathers flying all over the places,...finally we took the poor bird and checked if it was ok. Dickens looked at us a bit bewildered; I took the little bird into the garden and set it free, alas after a short flight he landed onto the passage by the front door and Dickens was again dangerously close to the bird. Another chase and rescue operation ensued, then I realised that the bird was still not ready to fly, so I helped him and almost "launched" it towards the sky and fortunately he flew far enough, landing on a branch of a fairly tall tree.

Allow me to introduce you to our friend Dickens...

...cute,funny little Dickens, always so keen to bring us gifts, ie small mice and birds promptly rescued after a bit of chasing, goodness, I didn't know that small mice could run so fast!
Here Dickens is striking a pose, wondering what on earth I am up to, and what is that device I carry around all the time!

As cool as only a cat can be!

If only I could be this cool myself, but then again you all know how stressful it can be when it comes to relocating! I am back and hopefully in a few days time we will escape to glorious Derbyshire! I apologise for not been able to post for a while, watch this space, more photos coming your way soon, as ever many thanks for stopping by, a big hello to new and old friends!
