First, the bad news: one of the kittens Bonnie gave birth to last Sunday died after less than two days. We recognised early on that it probably wouldn’t last as it showed no interest in feeding. However, the remaining kitten is very healthy and seems to double in size every other day now she (we think it’s a she) has all of Bonnie’s milk. For selfish, new-book-marketing reasons, two lovely fluffy kittens would’ve been better than one, but I will see what I can do with just the one come July.
Elsewhere, for a few weeks now woodpeckers have been visiting the garden. I think it might have something to do with the fat we hang out for them in the winter, but then again maybe not. Anyway, a couple of days ago I had my camera to hand and managed to snap one of the little blighters – yay!
