Remembering Thomas on his adoption day

Thomas came into our home on this day, 4 years ago.  He was very handsome & loved by all.  Here he is, having a chat with the perch:

 

Always in our thoughts.

A sweetheart….

They are all sweethearts (when they are not causing trouble) but for the purposes of this post, I am singling out Lennie Dennie, because he posed for some very nice photos in front of the red mirror.

Lennie & the Seagull

It is rare, but now & then we see seagulls ‘out the back’.  I posted once before (click here) about a particularly scary encounter.  Each time the seagulls appear, all birds are scared & immediately rush to the safety of a cage & go quiet for some time.  I do not blame them for their seeming cowardice.  When the seagulls swoop past the window they do look menacing & fierce.

I managed to capture some photos from a recent seagull visit.  You can see in the first photo, that a very brave Lennie Dennie, is still on the window perch (far left), skinny with shock, but mesmerised by the sight.

 

Swing of illusion

Perry & Lennie’s first encounter with a teeter-totter-mirror-see-saw (ttmss) swing was during an exploratory visit to the Manor.  They did not have one in their quarantine cage so it proved to be a good source of entertainment.  They also discovered the hot pink one in the Silver Villa.

Because of the mirror & the perches on either side, photos can come out…. interesting!

I like the way that when they fall off, they just immediately get back on again.  No drama, no fuss, no analysing… they just carry on where they left off. 🙂

 

 

Discovering the bath

Once they were out & about, it did not take long (a matter of days) for Perry & Lennie to discover The Thomas Bath.

Lennie was first…..

 

Followed closely by Perry….
