My cat Frank continues to surprise me. Before Easter I spent a couple of days with friends not far from where we lived about 18months ago. When I turned the van off the main highway, on the route I used to take when I lived in the region, Frank started speaking, as he does when he recognises where he is. Sadly for Frank, I stopped not at his old place, but somewhere completely different – and one which smelt of DOG! But when the dog was safely inside his house, Frank could do a little exploring. Pixel decided discretion was the best bet, and kept inside the van apart from short walks on her lead and harness. Fred was fine, and if I disappeared into the house, he would return himself to the van and keep watch there. He was also being very protective of “his cats” which was surprising but nice.
Then we travelled back to where we’ve all spent time in the past, but again, even though the cats hadn’t been there for over a year, they remembered it, and had a great time exploring old haunts. There have been a few minor arguments with the resident feline, but I told them the place was big enough for everyone, and it’s settled down for now. In a couple of days we’re returning to where we first stayed, for housesitting duties, although the van will be parked in a slightly different position. The following week perhaps we’ll go a little further afield….. 🙂
Got some photos to share… later…. 🙂 But selected this one from when we lived on the Limestone Coast farm property and could do lovely long morning walks…..
