Often people may wonder at how i can be a wildlife photographer ,live on acreage and maintain a healthy happy balance between wild and domestic.
I can..it has been hard and financially costly but it is possible.
Occasionally Cleo likes to join me on a walk..she is like a dog..she follows me around..and follows me back inside the house..
Dinnermintz prefers the front porch if she goes out.and there she stays..maybe to venture across the driveway and hide under a bush…the driveway being in our front yard and safe.
Pickles likes to go scratch up the garden..then dart back inside.
Marbles likes to go out the back garden and relax.
This is in the cooler months…when the snakes are not around..they spend the warm months in the house or the catio and are inside before dark every day of their lives.
Today is World Cat Day..and i wanted to share my girls …

Misguided beliefs and stupid superstition lead to Black cats being the least likely to be adopted from shelters..leading to larger kill rates…
Surely an enlightened society can see this is unacceptable..i have had the honour of sharing my life with 5 Black cats..and I would like to share Cleo the fifth of our Black Cats with you…
She is beautiful..photogenic…fun..cuddly…curious…and all these attributes come from within her fur…she would have them no matter what her fur colour..she is as individual as you and I…imagine missing out on all she is because of this ridiculous bias.
Thankyou Cleo…but really I can’t actually read the cookbook if your panfur butt is planted on it.
I will be a bit offline soon as some of our kids and better halves come up for the weekend from tomorrow…so Cleo is helping me go through my French cookbooks…she does this by whapping my pen on the floor multiple times..then chewing the corners of the books..this is followed by jumping on the bench to see if she can help with the segmenting and sugar syrup coating of the Tangelo’s..i mean she does have some lovely peacock feathers up there on the wall behind her…..
Who said you cannot be a domestic goddess and a cat owner ….
Please send your good vibes to Cleo and Marbles both were in the back yard and I have found a dead Red-Bellied black snake..
Vet says to monitor as they both seem fine at the moment…
I feel ill….seems snake may have been dead a while and bought into the yard by Cleo..who may or may not have killed it..
We will be watching her and Marbles very closely…
That’s all for now folks..
