Little do they know.


A quiet day in France profonde.  Sophie fixes me with her ' what are we going to do today ? ' look. Bob stands on his stump seat and guards.


The Old Farmer has left food for his cats in the venerable motor home. There's no need for a key to get in as the lock on the drivers door has rusted away. Three cans of cat food and three bottles of UHT milk. Angus is unsure whether this was designed to feed two cats or whether the Old Farmer had adjusted the quantities for the untimely demise of the cat that had fallen asleep under the wheels of his Peugeot. 


Angus opts to give the cat a full can of Whiskas and a half bottle of milk. Cat seems quite happy with this compromise.


Angus sits on the doorstep next to Bob and phones men in dark suits . Sophie saunters past, turns on her back in the sun and falls asleep at my feet. Angus hopes the men in dark suits can't hear her snoring. Sophie snores like a trooper. The men in dark suits probably think I'm calling from a modern office in Paris. Little do they know.


Diesel with medals. A great photo.

  1. That's the best way to do business in our opinion.

  2. In the first picture, Sophie is sporting one of her more unique hair styles! Bob appears to have the front gate under control. You are being very kind to your neighbor cat. I'm sure in addition to the food, human contact is appreciated at this time.

  4. Life goes on as usual at ROF, even if the standard of cuisine is not quite what it usually is ! The cat looks very sleek and well fed, but who wouldn't, on a whole can of cat food a day.
    Looking at the state of the veritable motor home, it's amazing the Old Farmer gets as far as he does in his travels !

  6. Cute cat - thanks for taking care of it.

    France is in our thoughts a lot at the moment. Crazy stuff.

  7. There's no sense in letting the cat food or milk go to waste, and I've a feeling the men in the dark suits would probably agree.

  8. I read about Diesel yesterday morning, and he was on my mind all day. The Guardian reported that he was sent into the St, Denis
    flat in advance of his officers and was immediately shot. Such a beautiful dog gone in the line of duty. Our Lily got some extra
    affection yesterday.

  9. What a sweet looking cat! Snoring in the sun sounds good to me. We got a couple inches of snow last night and no relief in sight just yet.

  10. When I saw your title "Little do they know"...I said to myself...oh no the angelic duo are off to the kennels again while you and the Font go gallivanting on another trip...breathed a sigh of relief when I read that you were referring to the men in dark suits.
    I think the Old Farmer's cat will love you forever more with his meal rations.
