Pretty, isn't it?
We're finally back on site (those who know me, will also know that I LOVE returning home to Mwadui!) and had a wonderful reunion with our precious kitties and the pups.
Ginger dozes in the sun, after three weeks confinement inside the house!
Shadow enjoys the sunshine and new grass
Ambrose searches for any hapless lizards or bugs to pounce on !
As always, Regina and Mary looked after the cats very well. Ambrose has gained weight and is finally showing a certain maturity. Watch this space for when he posts on my blog over the weekend! Regina tells me that Ginger and Shadow got on very well while I was away. For those who missed my posts before I went on leave at the end of October, I was caught in the crossfire of a serious fight between these two male cats. The result was several nasty wounds on my calf. I'm fine now, BTW!
Then the reunion with the pups! Of course they've grown. And once they realized that I'd returned, they jumped up against the fence, clamoring to get out!
The pups at ten weeks!
Princess proudly poses with her beautiful pups
Although they're weaned, the pups still try to suckle whenever they get a chance!
The pups explored every inch of our back garden on their first introduction to it!
Although the pups are of a mixed breed, and all have pointy faces, they are fat and healthy belying the fact that they're African dogs
Michael sits in the garden with me while Princess and her pups cavort all over the lawn
Back in their enclosure, the pups recharge their batteries for the next outing. Michael and I take them out for a romp on the lawn at least four times a day!
The time is fast approaching for me home these pups. I'm still working on my darling husband, (who doesn't know it, but is a pushover when it comes to animals!) to keep two - and not only one - pup.
Meanwhile I'm linking this post to Good Fences Thursday. I also wish you all a wonderful Thursday. It's become good for me now that I'm back on blogger again!
