  1. I think big cats are gorgeous to see……..with many bars between them and me……….MTM does have photos of lions from a safari he took in Kenya years ago. They are either sleeping or…..well, you know.

    1. 😀 I thought you didn’t do rhymes, Andra! 😀
      I like all cats myself. Big ones, small ones, and talking ones! They do do a lot of the well, you know, though! 😉

    1. Thanks, Diane… I think you’ve mentioned your cat dreams before – you dream of being cat-like, if I remember… I tried to put myself into the mind of a cat when I wrote this…

    1. I’ll be lying if I said that I wasn’t thinking of Spudley when I wrote this, Kate, especially after I saw her talking to a couple of sparrows in the garden the other day. She’s a clever one, that cat! She speaks English, and now Sparrow! 😀

  6. Having kept cats myself, and having had the odd one or two presents brought me in the form of gifts of mice and birds unfortunately .. Cats will follow their instincts.. and Pounce ! Very well done, and love the One eye picture too. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sue, cats love to bring their offerings every now and then don’t they? They look proud as punch with them too! But yes, they are instinctive!
      I found that photo on the Google Image thingy, and loved the colour, so I borrowed it…

      1. I knew exactly what you meant, Andro, I’m quite fluent in Moggie Lingo now :D! I think I’ve been watching the cats honing their skills when they weren’t hungry then, as I’ve seen quite a few leapin’ and not a lot catchin’! (Catchin’ get it?! 🙄 Terrible joke, sorry… :D)
