Currants and Kittens
After the bird raids last year I decided to put netting over my redcurrants. This is a photo of the pickings off just one bush this year:
There’s been quite a lot of chaos in my house over the last week so I’d like to tell you about a little visitor who’s helping me to cope. He arrived about two weeks ago. One of the local feral tomcats that we feed brought him over. I can’t believe how patient the tomcat is with this little ball of energy. This is the best photo I managed to get on arrival day.
How could he fail to cheer me up? He’s a cutie, doncha think?
[Update] I just realised that I left out the connection between currants and kitten, d’oh. When I went out earlier to pick currants I put the bowl down on the grass, lifted the net, turned back and found a kitten in the bowl! Little scamp.
