Rufus, our Maine Coon kitten will be 1 year old next month and I can’t believe how much he has grown and become a real part of the family- except that is for Holly! I am sad to report that Holly and Rufus are not the best of friends and we have to keep them apart for feeding and sleeping!!
Holly, is a normal, beautiful moggy, who sleeps all day and night and enjoys a cuddle on the settee in the evening. Rufus thinks he’s a collie dog and bounds ever hopefully towards the sheep, who quite readily butt him away!
Part of our daily routine is now taking Rufus for a walk around the garden and up the field, where he has many adventures, exploring the trees and everything growing above and below ground!
The hips, haws, blackberries and sloes were all sniffed as we made our way to the top of the field.
Rufus liked sitting on Jim’s bench looking back towards the house and the Brecon Beacons hidden by low cloud before he set off at an incredible speed to the bottom of the hill again!
He roamed through the borders until he reached the apple and crab apple trees where he had another climb!
The one tree he didn’t try to climb- our Monkey Puzzle Tree!
At last he had worn himself and me out and settled down and tried to make pals with Holly!
