Hedges pets at home

 Hi Bozo and all Mum's blog readers; this is Ambrose with the latest Hedges pets' news.  (there are no photos of me as I was too busy writing the post to look in Mum's pictures.)

Farm and domestic critters

For friend, Sandra of Madsnapper's information, the large spider is still residing in my house. In fact I potted her (the large ones are females in the arachnid world) on the wall  above the kitchen cupboards a few days ago. When I got into bed that night, I looked up and spotted her on the wall above my clothes cupboard. Well, perhaps it's not her, but her sister. Anyway, I have left the spiders in peace and they don't bother me either!

So all I have for today's critter post are the farmyard and household critters in my life - with a bird or two thrown in!

And then an update on the veranda cat, Missy (Miscot)...

 After all the tree climbing, Missy is exhausted!

Welcome summer rains
