Wiltshire Wildlife

Time for a West of England wildlife photo:

The other day, he made me jump when I looked out over the sink through the kitchen window. I snapped this photo right afterwards. He kept looking at me.

He reappeared yesterday, scratching at our sliding glass door. Obviously he thinks this house – which we’ve now been living in for under two weeks – is part of his turf. I mean, look how bl-ody comfortable he’d made himself! 🙂

    1. After we got a closer look at him after he’d scratched at the door, we’d say he’s a young cat, not much older than a kitten. Obviously he’s had the run of the place while it was empty. Now he’s stunned to see RESIDENTS!

      1. Do you have other cats? Or have you had them? If so, you know that people don’t pick cats, cats pick people. When I moved into my house 6 years ago, there was a feral calico stray around the neighborhood. I started feeding her and needless to say, she keeps coming back twice daily like clockwork. 🙂


        1. We don’t own cats, but we know lots of cats other people own. I am worried about being “chosen” by the cat. If he reappears a third time, I’m going to start getting nervous! 🙂
