Bobby has a new friend – so it seems

Bobby is not keen on the wet and windy November weather and therefore it’s nice to see that she loves her tall climber in the living room. When she gets high on cat nip she gets really wild and loves chasing her fishing rod toy. It’s now very thin at the tip of its tail. Despite the weather though she still goes out – not only to watch birds and to have a pee (she prefers outdoors to her litter tray) but  it looks like she has found herself a little pet mouse (well that’s pure assumption) in the garden under all the plants and she spends ages just watching that particular spot. So far we couldn’t make out in the dark (cause it’s only in the evenings she watches whatever it is) what animal she is observing, but we have this image of a cute mouse just hovering there, eating, while Bobby looks at it trying to befriend it. I don’t see why it is not possible. After all the animal world is full of stories of unusual friendships like this one between lion baby Zinzi and meerkat Bob who live Predator World Zoo and Game Farm in South Africa. Check out these cute images.

Our cat is incredibly peaceful, nosey and friendly. The only animals she kills are moths and flies. It’s not only that she really doesn’t need to supplement her diet with extra prey, it’s just every time she hunts and almost manages to catch something – she is not sure what to do with it. It seems like she is more interested in the thrill of the hunt than eating her prey. She had many chances to kill small birds but she didn’t.

The pigeons love her – mainly because they associate her with food. My husband feeds them every morning before he heads off to work – mainly to entertain Bobby. Which means she gives me some extra minutes of sleep too. The pigeons make an awful racket on the conservatory roof though when they are picking up the seeds though.

When they don’t get fed they are rather disappointed and look to Bobby as if to say: where’s the food?
