oriental longhair.

Our new kitten

Welcome to Sparkle"]Sparkle with her brothers and sisters

can't go around shouting the name her previous owner called her,

Goddess Skadi of Puddhaspalace*GB

reg no (GB) FB RX 1-009897

ok  why not call her skadi. ? In Norse mythology, Skaði (sometimes anglicized as Skadi, Skade, or Skathi) is a jötunn and goddess associated with bowhunting, skiing, winter, and mountains and dates back to the 13th century. So a great name to call a wolf or a siberian fox,

Her sister is T-bell  but she does not know it  and tries to avoid her as much as possible,

the wren and the blackbird

birds and seeds.

Yesterdays glimpse of the moon between the clouds

Mistle thrush 

House sparrow  found a crust

this is a quick post for  Mary , I find the birds do not eat the coconut unless I put sun flower seeds in the half shell.
 once the sunflower seeds are gone they tend to pick at the coconut

Sylvester  looking as if to say "think them birds can see me behind the dried grass"

two male chaffinch the one with the feathers on the legs is here all the time and nests in the back garden

Saphy enjoying a bit of morning sun  watching the birds on the feeders.
 and me I have to go get some more  fat balls for them.
