Urchin has a very keen interest in gardening. She felt that the proportions of vermiculite to potting mix in this batch of soil was just about right.

On the patio

There is a part of the patio that is particularly good for rolling on.

Urchin and the Chillies

Here is Urchin in December last year, in one of her favourite spots on the conservatory windowsill between our 2 chilli plants.

What a sweet cat. How pretty and innocent. Sitting like a picture on a box of chocolates. Just adorable, and in NO WAY a menace.

Then see the sight I came home to on Thursday night.
I suspect that she was chasing a fly up the window and the chilli got in her way. Fortunately the pot landed on the doormat and the floor tiles weren't chipped. The chilli lost a couple of branches, but it has now been repotted, and we wait to see whether it will survive the experience.
