November 1 – Billie and the Fish Pond in Raleigh

Hello from 1066 – A Medieval Mosaic

It was a freezing cold day so we stayed home and kept warm with Billie the cat sleeping blissfully beside us all day. He is a lovely very deaf cat so I have to be careful not to sneak up on him. The third day we were here he seemed very depressed and kept away from us but after he realised that we were feeding him, emptying his dirt box and giving him lots of stokes and cuddles he came around and spends all his time nearby. He now sleeps on our bed and walks over us in the middle of the night when he needs something.

The fish are not so friendly but Mike feeds them and makes sure that were are no leaves in the pond and that the pump is working. He has counted about 16 goldfish.
