An adventure too far maybe?


It was a lovely mild day today, so I decided the garden needed my attention. You see, I’ve hardly been in the garden since the end of Sept, when my Father-in – Law was taken seriously ill and with running my own business and bad weather my garden has had to take a back seat.
But today was the day I got back in my little bit of heaven, but where to start – erm remove the sweet peas – done. Remove died back bedding plants done. Then I thought the kittens are now 11 weeks and they’ve never been outside, so I opened the patio window and out they came.
They followed me around and explored everything, they were so excited, what an adventure. I walked around the pond with the intention of brushing the path and then it happened Rosie kitten just jumped into the pond – plop. (i have no idea why) I was so shocked to see this little thing splashing and struggling.I shouted my husband who came running, by this time Rosie had swam around in panic but managed to pull herself out. We took her inside and rubbed her down, then all we could do was laugh- and there ended my gardening day.
I’ll have to sort out the christmas tree now, as the kittens think the baubels only hang for them to remove them – little darlings -not!!!!!
To all of my GOY friends, I wish you all a fabulous Christmas and here’s to a wonderful gardening 2012. KAY

brilliant blog Kay, and so funny, i gasped when i read what rosie did, how strange for a cat to do that, even though they can swim apparently, bet she had a shock, cause it would be so cold to, glad all is ok though and panic over.
enjoy your christmas and hope the tree stays upright haha :o)) x

poor little rosie! she wont do that again!!

when minty was little she pulled all the tinsel [that she could reach] from the tree so i put little gold bells all round the bottom of the tree so i could hear when she was there!!

If there were bells on my tree sticki they wouldn't stop ringing lol. My daughter decided I wasn't being firm enough with the kittens over the tree -so she decided that everytime they climbed it, she pulled them out and said NO firmly and put them down, and guess what straight back up again - they won.

they probably encourage each other!!!
minty was fine the following year! have you got a video??

22 Dec, 2011
