The Academic Cat Plans To Leave Home.


A few weeks ago The Academic Cat, who in reality is anything other, decided to read about The Russian Civil War.

Her antics earned a little bit of fame, however fame has gone to her head and after studying the hand luggage regulations for the airlines, could not find a reason why she could not be carried as hand luggage.

Is this the most ridiculous cat in the world?

The Best Photos of 2014. Maybe.


This is the time of year that I frantically try and complete a calendar for 2015.  Here is the short list of my photos. It has been a strange photographic year really. Some memorable shots but maybe not as many as in past years so it has been relatively easy to get down to a final set of 22. all help appreciated in helping me choose the final 12.

Mouse Catching


That sort of interesting evening. 10 pm and the 11 year old just in bed and suddenly a shout of ” mouse”. But how does a field mouse get upstairs? It took one hour and three people and 2 cats to corner the mouse. Shadow was the successful cat, Bolt a failure. But in the end shadow caught the mouse and would not let it go, growling at me. options are carry cat downstairs or try and get mouse off cat myself. In the end shadow dropped the mouse, that was quite good at playing dead, and I managed to catch it and carry it outside. where it gave me one of those stunned looks sitting on the pavement. Anyway mouse gone. But how upstairs? Does it have friends there? If it has been living there what did it eat? all too much for midnight…
