RUPERT AND THE HERBS

The herbs that I bought recently cannot be planted out while the weather is still so cold, and so they are sitting on the table, in the window of my workroom.
Right next door to them is the blanket where one or other cat sits and natters at the sea gulls on the roof.
They take it in turns to share this place and at the moment it is Rupert who has bagged it.
For some reason he likes the Sage and loves to lay there playing with the leaves and rustling the plastic bag.
Please note the very long eye brow whisker on the left.

  1. I can't have any herbs indoors ...one or other of the cats chomp on them. I used to try to have chives and Basil on the windowsill and I remember the night I went to bed with a pot of long chives and got up to what looked like newly cut grass. lol xx

  6. Rupert is a very handsome cat. Love the long eye brow whisker! And no, we can't have any type of greenery in the house or one of our 5 will eat it.

  10. Long eyebrows are a sign of wisdom! Actually I just made that up. Love his name! When my old boy cat was about a year old, I bought him a catnip plant and put it in the garden. He did some serious damage rolling on it before I got him in for the night. The next morning, only a dry stump was left and the earth round it was smoothed and polished! There was a variety of different coloured cat hairs on all the sourrounding plants. A very short lived present!
