It must be time for more pictures of the Sock's cats. Above is Luka. As you can see he is a real badass cat! The Sock believed that he was the floppiest, cuddliest, silliest cat in the world and has been worrying as despite our urban terraced environment there is a family of foxes live locally and at least one follows the cats route up along the back of the gardens. Sometimes the fox stops in front of the shed to admire the garden before going on his way. The Sock has been fearful that the fox will see this great big ball of fluff and have a go at him!
Yesterday Luka dropped down from his afternoon kip on the shed and started ambling sleepily down the garden in the hope of a nice treat from the fridge when suddenly he ran back up the garden behind the shed and a fox bolted out from the other side with Luka in hot pursuit! Having seen the fox off his garden Luka then continued to strut back down the garden as if nothing had happened!
Luka was named after the Bedsock's favourite singer Luka Bloom.
And this is his sister Hebe helping with the ironing. Hebe was named after an incident with Chris Beardshaw. Hebe is curiously obsessed with snails and can often be seen with her head stuffed into one of the urns scattered around the garden checking for them. Once sighted she hooks the snail with her claw and then hurls it across the garden with all the skill of a discus thrower!
And this is two cats in the garden - it is sunny so it must have been taken last year!
