Last day of sit in the Dales…cold, wet, windy…just how i like it…stumbled across 40s weekend
Great photos @MarieHuggins and it looks like you have had a fabulous time in the Dales!
Thank you @Samox24. You are always so complimentary :blush:
One relaxed cat (Pepper) on my current sit. Unfortunately her sister cat I’ve hardly seen as she likes to be outside and still isn’t sure of this strange person looking after her so tends to eat at night when I’m not there (there’s a catflap so they can come and go as they please!).
Hi @richten1 so adorable!
Hopefully the other one will warm to you soon.
Enzo, my new lovable buddy.
He got his name because one of his humans loves vintage cars. As a puppy, Enzo zipped around like an Italian racer.
He’s now 11 and snoozes a lot. He’s still very social. He thrives even on busy sidewalks among plenty of people and dogs. That wins him pets and treats from strangers.
When we met, he greeted me with licks in the doorway. (Seems sorta Italian, LOL.)
My host comes home in three days. After 5 1/2 weeks with the fabulous Fezzy, I’m already starting to mourn the fact that I’ll have to leave him in just a few days. This is always the hardest part of sits for me.
Lovely photos @Karen_E and yes I agree with you it’s always the hardest part when it’s time to say goodbye
Meet Magenta 10 days in the UK Midlands with this wise old lady, she is the most adorable cat (I do say that VERY frequently about the pets we sit, but it’s SO true) who looks at mere humans as if she understands everything and at times is saying, WHY are you doing that!!??
How lovely @Angela_L … enjoy the rest of your time there with Magenta
You can’t help but get attached to pets @Karen_E, especially when it’s a longer sit. Fezzy looks a great dog to have had for company and cuddles. And I hear Melbourne has turned on some lovely Spring weather of late. So glad you’ve had a wonderful time Down Under in Melbourne.
@Angela_L Magenta looks very like Tilly, another wise old lady (17 years old) who I not long looked after in Devon and just loved her.
They do look alike @temba … Magenta is very special and that’s how the family lovingly refer to her, although I think there is a kindly, double meaning there somewhere … they smile broadly, with a glint in the eye when they say it.
What a glorious time of year to be in Australia! Where are you? 2 1/2 hours from Sydney in the Blue Mountains, along the coast?
If you can find a Tasmania sit to add on at the end, highly recommended!
How lovely to hear from you @toml.
I am at the very top of the Blue Mountains a short walk outside the village of Blackheath and it is absolutely glorious as everything is bursting with new life. All I hear are birds and the flowering trees are buzzing with bees.
I already know I will have to return and explore more of the hidden in these areas. In addition I have had numerous invitations I have had to decline, I will plan better next time.
Fabulous walking trails too.
Enzo and are having a good time.
That’s included Sunday roast and Enzo skinning and then biting to bits a toy I got him.
Yesterday, we took a boat ride down the River Avon. Enzo got friendly with the crew and seemed engaged in the ride.
We got back home in time for his dinner, but he also wanted some of mine. It’s hard to resist his cute little face, but I managed, LOL.
Friendly with crew members:
Enjoying the ride?
What’s for dinner? Popping up from under the tablecloth, LOL.
Gorgeous photos @Maggie8K
@Maggie8K whereabouts in Wiltshire/Somerset are you?
I’ve been caring for this purrfectly adorable senior lady for the past 10 days … she’s 15, wise, loving and her PP call her “special” that she truly is.
Today is the last day having her all to myself and she’s much more talented than I even knew, she designed a card, mailed it and bought a Greek Cat House all the way from, yes `Greece and I didn’t even see her leave the house. but then she is a cat
Thank you Magenta … you are indeed very special.
