My kids are growing up and leaving home so each year it gets a little quieter in my house. I have sent three children off into the world to make their way and have my last and youngest here with me for only a couple more years. As the kids leave my pet family seems to be growing with two new additions lately.
The first is a very cute little Rooster with trousers on who came to stay two or three weeks ago. Unfortunately his predecessor had an unfortunate meeting with a fox and we are hoping this little fella will have enough sense not to meet the same end. Of course the girls are very happy to have another male around.
A very dear friend has advised me to change his name but that would be mean considering all the changes he has gone through this week. Who knows what sort of psychological damage that would do?
He is also a very outside cat and is already over being shut inside all the time. He sits at the window looking longingly outside and I'm still not sure whether he just wants to get out or desperately wants to escape this madhouse!!!
