Shower was free to walk out of his stable into the field, but it’s been raining today so he decided to stay in 🙂
This is an oldish photo of a lovely little chap called Buttons. When he was 4 years old he became ill and an Xray revealed a large abdominal tumour that could not be removed.
He was prescribed steroid tablets (for the rest of his life) and was given about 6 weeks to live.
This photo was taken 6 YEARS later and Buttons was still going strong. I split up with my boyfriend and, during the split, Buttons started to go downhill. I couldn’t take him with me as I was moving into short-term rented accommodation; also I wanted my cats to stay in their home (my boyfriend and I had a fairly good sized farmhouse with outbuildings and land which the cats loved).
I left the house and never saw Buttons or my other 5 cats again. My ex wouldn’t allow contact of any kind, so I couldn’t even ask how the cats were.
I didn’t really care about losing my home, but the pain of losing my cats never leaves me 😦
A pine marten has been seen in Shropshire – the first positive sighting of this mammal in England for 100 years.
The pine marten lives in and around woodland and is nocturnal.
They have been persecuted by man for game, fur, and as vermin and were hunted by dogs for sport in the past.
Another reason for their decline is habitat destruction, though the Forestry Commission recognised this and began to protect the pine marten.

My new phone has a setting called ‘Beauty face’. I guess most people already have this type of thing on their phones, but I’m always lagging behind with technology so it’s new to me!
I don’t look much different to normal – just a bit blurry in the face.
Unfortunately, ‘Beauty face’ doesn’t add a smile and I look as sour and threatening as I usually do in photos!
I made a big effort to smile, which has given me a ‘sarcastic face’!
I’m looking for the ‘pimp your horse’s pic’ setting but can’t find it!
