 Now look at this wee cheeky chappie... he's outside my kitchen window looking for a snack, this was taken Tuesday evening at 6.45 pm.. he does visit us every day sometimes he gets a little food... but lately if you dont take any notice of him he justs sits and stares at the window like a little dog... the good thing is if you give him some food he goes away until the next day.. in his mouth is a piece of meat which my DH gave him from the window of course, so I expect he will be back tomorrow.. if Princess Lou Lou (furrball) is not about as she chases him from the garden,so he wont come near if madam is in the garden, but tonight she was doing what she does best.... sleeping zzzzzz
