It's That Cat Again

It's a horrible day.  We have been besieged by storms and serious blog posts (well a few anyway) so I thought I'd show some pictures of Wesley (or whatever his/her name is).  S/he will get a surprise tomorrow: Molly arrives this evening.

  1. Wesley looks happy about her/his business. :)

  2. There are going to be some scaredy cats when Molly arrives.

    1. They 'met' this morning Viv. The cat was under the bushes faster than lightning which showed great presence of mind given that Molly would almost certainly have been quicker than her if she'd run the length of the garden to escape.

  3. I think Wesley is expecting some little Wesleys...?

    1. Frances you have much more experience of that sort of thing than I do but I couldn't tell. I'll try and find out.

  4. Hopefully, the dog won't be able to get hold of the cat to harm it...

    1. Victoria I doubt the dog would harm the cat but a lot will depend on how quickly the cat can run. She spends a great deal of her time trying to catch birds in my garden and so far she's not been quick enough for that.

  5. So along with rotten weather you have an unpleasant visitor!

    1. I've never thought of the cat (nor of Molly) as unpleasant Red. They are animals and do what they do.

  6. I bet Molly had a wild ride across the Minch.

    1. Surprisingly Adrian, David said that the sail was very uneventful, almost calm, apart from the few minutes when she turned from a southerly course hugging the mainland shore to a northerly one across The Minch.

  7. Typical cat - chosing the seemingly most uncomfortable position (back legs on a higher rock than front legs) to drink from that tiny pool of water, while I am quite sure there is a perfectly good bowl of water waiting for him/her at home. And while assuming that uncomfortable position, of course he/she pretends that this is exactly as he/she wants it to be.

    1. Meike cats are like that aren't they. I wonder why.

  8. Ah, I see - Molly is a dog! I thought that she would be a police markswoman. If Molly manages to kill that cat you could turn the pelt in to a Davy Crockett style hat. Your Canadian bush hat is stylish but a cat hat would keep your bonce warmer in the wintertime.

    1. It's been a while since I last heard the word "bonce", YP!

  9. As much has already been said about cats and dogs i'll jump on something else: "besieged by serious blog posts"?!

  10. I'm not much of a cat lover! Give me dogs any day! :)
    Lovely shots though, Graham.

    1. Liz I'm not someone who would have a pet but I suppose that it depends why one would want one: to be an 'owner' (of a dog) or to be owned (by a cat).

  11. "SURPRISE!!!" I can't wait for Molly to arrive....oh GB I hope you are able to capture the meeting.

    1. Well Virginia I didn't capture the meeting but when Molly saw the other cat from next door the cat was just about to pounce on a bird and didn't see Molly. The cat jumped right up into the air and landed in the middle of a low hedge and then just escaped with Molly in close pursuit. I haven't seen that cat in the garden since. Since Molly went the other cat has resumed it's daily occupation of the garden.
