After about 6 weeks in the “wilderness”… ahem…. normal service has been resumed…..
Although Cagney will still hold his bruised right leg up, it looks like it does not hurt as much as before…

Atilla can be an independent girl when she wants to be. She likes to keep tabs on the mirror under the Manor & often requests the HNS to ferry her there & back. However, shockingly, I am not always available to attend to her every whim, so I rigged up a perch & peg system connecting the manor door to the stairway, giving her a pathway to the mirror.
It did not take long for her to make use of it….

Give them LOADS of wild grass!
Atilla is often the exception – as you can tell in this video – as she is making quite a bit of noise bashing the camera…
But even Atilla is quiet here, busy eating along with Cagney & Bezukhov…

Atilla is up to her old tricks again. I know that she likes my baggy, green t-shirt & the navy blue one – she likes to go up the sleeve & come out by my belly. I tend not to wear those t-shirts if I have work to be getting on with. Yesterday she attempted the same with my light blue top, only this top has 3/4 length sleeves that are not so baggy.
After a little perseverance she managed to squeeze her way in, work her way up to my armpit & then emerge by my belly. Then there was no stopping her…. she wanted to go in again… & again…. & again…. It was like a fairground ride where she was the only one queuing.
I showed her a short cut though, where she could come out on my chest.
Here is a video. It’s a bit long as she decided to retrace her steps at one point.

Another surprise treat was received today!
Once again, Rosebudgie & her boyz Ian & Marshall have picked, parcelled & posted more wild grass……
…AND some fresh, medicinal dandelion leaves! They look so much fresher & more delicious than the polluted city version.
I gave them dandelion leaves first, which they all chomped on. Here is Cagney tucking in:
Thank you Rosebudgie. 🙂

Atilla & the toyboys have been tucking into their wild grass treat. I have been pegging it to a swinging perch & propping it up on the landing platform so it was very much like a ladder of grass.

Here they are munching on the grass:
Atilla was checking out the camera:
Atilla finally left the camera to eat some grass too:

Atilla has got into the habit of preening Cagney’s head at bedtime. She is very thorough. In fact, she is so thorough that I think it is a bit of an ordeal for him, so the last couple of nights he has opted out by sleeping on the peg.
Here is some dark & grainy evidence of Atilla’s thoroughness & Cagney’s meekness…..
