For all who just could not picture this, I apologise – you must wait a little longer for a photograph. The weather here has been far too cold and nasty to take a kitten out for a walk – she has had to satisfy herself with gazing at the snowflakes from indoors and then charging madly up and down the stairs. We have noticed that the weather has affected her signifi-cat-ly. She is far loopier than usual and, when stroked, produces static electricity which makes her fur crackle and stand on end! Weird!
The reason we bought a lead (leash) and harness for her is that she is incredibly fast and feisty and we live in a house surrounded by a field, a road and a disused farm track with a stream beside it. The fence is designed to keep farm livestock in – not kittens out. Other ‘residents’ of the area include cattle, sheep, badgers, foxes and buzzards – so we were anxious the kitten should not disappear into the hazy blue yonder and to a possibly gruesome end.
I promise that the very next time she models the harness I will take a picture of her – even if it has to be an indoor shot.


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.
