    1. Oh no, she’s not a judgemental cat! I think she’s thinking of eating a bird.

      1. by the time she has thought about it it will have gone. Actually we saw a kestrel drop from the sky and pick up a mouse today wow it was amazing, just like a bullet dropping down infront of our eyes, was quite a shock x

  3. Melancholy or meditative? With a cat sometimes it’s hard to tell.

    1. Precisely, cats are good at hiding their mood. But this cat is a tough one, so it’s more likely that she was plotting murder rather than contemplating metaphysical problems.
