Yesterday, Dalai had his first misting.
Since his arrival, Dalai has witnessed several mistings. Both Bezukhov & Phineas have demonstrated the art of prancing about in some wet leaves whilst I spray water over them. Dalai would usually take himself off to the Villa & leave them to it. I was not too concerned because he does take regular baths in the Thomas Bath.
Several factors may have influenced Dalai to try out a misting: they are both going through what seems like a never-ending moult, Bezukhov was very keen to throw himself into the celery leaves, & the sun was shining brightly though it is now clearly winter. Whatever the reason, after he watched Bezukhov have a go, he decided to join in. I think he enjoyed it.
