New story.

After showing friends the "re-vamped" canvas
 they asked for a story to go with it...
So take a seat and we shall begin...


As I tidied the bedroom, my attention was drawn to a soft fluttering around my ankles.
Looking down, I caught a glimpse of golden fur. The small speckled cat darted from
beneath the bed and danced around my feet.
Strange, I thought. "Where did you come from Missy?"
I don't "do" cats. 
"Best you go home now" and I stooped to catch the happy little creature by her scruff.
"Now , now...hissing is not polite. You belong outside!" I said as I carried the wriggling mass out through the kitchen door.
The moment I released my grip she bounced playfully around the lawn.
Suddenly a much heavier, fluffier feline shot into view, and the pair bolted for the far end of the garden.
Strange, I thought again, A Wild cat and a Lynx , both on the same day?
I followed the pair to the bottom of the garden, but lost sight of them as they scrambled through the hedge.

Entering the outbuilding to my right, I could hear Hubby.
"um...are both dogs with you?" I asked , feeling slightly unsettled by the unusual visitors.

"Yes...I'm getting their food"

"Do me a favour and keep the inner door closed will you? I need to check that the cats have gone."

"What cats?"

"I'll tell you later"  and I turned to open the outer door, just in time to see the black sleek form of a Panther, slowly strolling up the garden path.
To be continued...
