Very rainy green day here; buckets of warm summer rain, draining all ambition and saturating the colors unnaturally. The only kind of summer day I truly like. The litter of five newborns is down to four, the smallest kitten passed at 3 am. Mama is feeding them somewhat but hasn’t got the ‘knack’ for the rest of motherhood yet, can’t blame her she’s too young. Not to worry everyone else is doing well. Amidst all the trapping this weekend, we pulled this little guy out of a boatyard. ‘Winkle’ is about the size of a tennis shoe and unusually sociable – I made 7 cage hammocks – he tried them all out.
