I'm very fond of crows, but they are neighbours here, so I don't need to keep one. Plus they are very social and would miss their mates.

I love seeing them all going off to work in the mornings. In their sober dark garb they remind me of the City of London commuters of long ago, with suits, rolled umbrellas and bowler hats.

And indeed you shouldnt keep one - he's best left wild. But I do miss them here in Spain. In Ireland they are everywhere. Just watching them is fun.

We have more afinity to cats and dogs because they are mammals like us I suppose.
Still I would love to befriend a crow. silent Embarassed

Badly-behaved-cat has turned into a fine big muscley prowling she-devil with very rich, dense and luxuriant white fur. She has yet to come home with a mouse, but neither have we seen any about the place, so one way or another she is doing her job.

She still has a very strong killer reflex and will randomly grab at a passing arm or leg and sink her teeth and claws into it. In the evenings she snoozes next to me with her chin on the edge of the laptop, and it is a long time since she's lost a post for me by jumping on the keyboard.

Christmas comes for animals as well as people. We never vary her rations, but either neighbours or kindly Christmas dustbins have done the trick and she has been tottering about today with a round stretched belly like a football. A few minutes ago I noticed her sitting looking at the cat flap lethargically, clearly with the thought that no way was that football shaped belly going to fit through it, so I had to let her out of the door.

This morning I saw a raven fall out of a bin and slap onto the road, victim of no more than his own overindulgence.

That is a lovely post.

The raven could be a metaphor for the bankers.

Will we put that post on the door-post ? Very child friendly and craftily written. Put some themes and a plot together and you'd have a tale alright.

That's a class post. I've read it three times already. It's the kind of thing you read at the dead center of a best seller. I love the image of the cat not fitting out the flap.

That reminds me of that wonderful scene in the the Winnie the Pooh series.

All of this is gorgeous - but the relevant bit for your post, cactus flower, comes from 4 mins onwards.
