John has one or two quite amusing photos showing a less sentimental view of birds and Boots than perhaps we might prefer.
We all know cats, even sweet-natured ones like Boots, catch mice and birds and must strike fear in the hearts of these smaller creatures, although no doubt to their relief, with advancing age Boots is more inclined to watch and glower, sweeping her tail with more menace than action. This view of Boots shows a side we’d prefer not to dwell on.
Then there are the pheasants: so gleamingly beautiful from afar; they strut about the garden looking mightily haughty and full of their own glamorous good looks but seen close to perhaps not quite so nice.
Glossing over squirrels completely – tree rats our neighbour calls them – we have been surprised watching the goldfinches at close quarters. So strikingly beautiful, they are pretty belligerent little creatures really, and not keen at all on sharing the niger seed with any of their brethren.
