And The Cat Crept In
A new cat has recently been making an appearance around our property. I became aware of it first, as I thought it was actually Oscar. It was getting dark and I saw this cat run across our drive. From what I could see of it, it looked very much like Oscar. So I shouted 'Oscar', but the cat ignored me and ran off. I was then naturally surprised to see the real Oscar in the kitchen when I opened the door. I told Gail about it, but I wasn't sure if she believed me or not. But she saw it herself a couple of weeks ago. She also managed to take a photo of it the other day, albeit a bit of a blurry one. So I was surprised and pleased to see it sitting on the drive this morning. I think it was looking for food. Anyway it didn't run away, and as I had my camera handy, I managed to take a number of shots of it. And yes it does look a lot like Oscar in both build and colouring. Gail reckons it's Oscar's older brother. I filled a small bowl up with some food and called it over. I went inside and it ran to the bowl. The poor thing must be hungry. I have no idea where all these cats keep coming from, or why they keep landing on our doorstep.
Day three of the Christmas Countdown brings the talented multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield to the fore and his rendition of 'In Dulci Jubilo'. The 500 year old carol translated as 'In Sweet Rejoicing'. A uplifting tune that helps you get into the mood for Christmas.
