My cherry tomatoes, my triumph over my black thumb in all matters plantlike. They never made it to the kitchen, I'd just walk past and eat the ripe ones on my way to the back door. I've now picked 10, an all time record.
My one and only banana chilli. I stir fried it with tofu and Thai seasoning and it doesn't look like I'm going to get another one on the bush. Probably because it's supposed to be in the ground not in a pot. A bit like the rest of the tomatoes which should be in the ground and are looking pretty grotty which is why you're not seeing a photo of them.
And my little (?) IceBear. Comfortable on the feather cushion like every other cat I've owned. Perhaps I should have rescued the other feather cushion at the time then I might have a chance to sit on one. He was still a bit shy of the camera but not of exploring the house. Nothing like picking up numerous diamonds off the floor because he decided to walk across the table in front of him. The tapestry protecting my table is anchored by a tonne of jewellery making things and it hangs down another 2 feet or so on the other side. Genius discovered that if he grabbed it with front and backs paws he could swing backwards and forwards, a great game.
My shredded curtains courtesy of Lucy and now himself. I do have lovely new ones but the shreddeds have been there since 2010 so I can wait until the explorer has finished exploring. The TV is beside the DVD player and it's at least a metre higher so I thought he'd never get up there.
Never underestimate a determined cat and never underestimate the dumbass who finds getting up is a lot easier than getting down.
At last, a head shot without hysteria. I've finally combed all the terrible fur knots out of his back so he's much more comfortable. Any time a cat can't groom himself I automatically look for an injury and since the knots were only in one spot, I assume he's had a wallop on the spine that's stopped him from moving without pain. I'm not spoiling him but I did find a nice diamond collar that should suit his colouring. Next up is getting to read the tag and changing the address to mine which the council charge for. And since all animals have to be registered in April, I get that as well. He's only been here a week and I heard a purr from him last night. I told you we'd bond over a can opener.
