Since moving here we have sadly lost both of our cats to the road. Whilst we have plenty of fields by our house, the lure of the further fields across the main road was just to much and I swore that whilst living here we would not offer a home to another cat. Instead we have adopting a 5 year old lurcher from Mayflower Sanctuary. So the rhythm of life has changed to one of regular walks for our new charge.
I thought we might have a little more trouble with her settling, but within minutes of entering our home her tail began to wag and she then settled down for a sleep – below is a pic of her on her first day here: one very happy and satisfied dog. I think she knew pretty much instantly that she was home.
