I wanted to write something about Poppy yesterday, but wasn't sure where, and not everyone on roll call is a pet lover, so I've started a thread.

On Saturday morning, whilst playing in the garden, Poppy managed to lose her collar. It's a safety release one so she doesn't strangle herself climbing trees etc Replacing her collar also means a new engraved ID tag and a new magnet for when I reactivate the magnetic key to the cat flap. I had a look outside but couldn't find it. ...

That evening she came through the cat flap, with something in her mouth (usually a garden worm or a piece of string,) but this time, yes you've got it - her previously lost collar! Clever girl!

Hi ,Melly have your seen the clips on youtube about cats being scared of cucumbers ?.

The theory is that they think they are snakes.
David,
How bizarre. I haven't a cucumber, I wonder if they react the same to courgettes? I'll see what Poppy does later.

David,
I showed her a courgette, she looked a bit wary and sniffed it. I think it is probably that the cats are relaxed when eating and when they turn round aren't expecting anything to be there? I hate being made "jump" so wouldn't play the same trick on Poppy.

Those cucumbers look a bit 'snaky' so perhaps at first glance they think a snake is stalking them.
The boys sleep with me in cold weather - as you can see! They have their own beds on the floor but once my eyes are closed... Beau(white) is deaf but Kimi is my mum alert so if I am needed in the night he wakes me up.

How brilliant.

Kimi does love his grandma and I think he is sometimes quite concerned about her. Like all pastoral breeds he wants his flock contained and happy! :D

Just discovered why sheets and towels drying on the banister often slide down to the bottom.... Just watched Poppy remove the peg with her teeth that was holding a drying sheet at the top of the sloping banister and run off with it! Little monkey!
