A new supervisor has arrived.

  Our kitten is growing quickly and now he is competing with me supervising, well in the office at least. Mum spends most days writing, or reviewing books, and my place is at her feet, which is fine as every so often I pop up onto her leg and have a little cuddle. However, Domino has now discovered how to climb up onto the table and lays on Mum’s desk, watching her work, or trying to catch the tails of the older cats as they go past, totally unaware he is up there. When its time to feed the outside animals however …

New Release today 14th January 2016 : Toby’s Tails – Saying Goodbye to Lucky by Susan Keefe

Losing an animal is devastating for young and old alike. Our pets are part of our family and for many losing them is like losing a family member. When we lost Lucky, our Golden Retriever, a dear companion who had been with us a long time, we were all devastated. Lucky was a key character in the very first Toby’s Tails book as Toby’s mentor, and I felt his passing couldn’t go unmarked. I like many others believe that animals have souls. When I read that the Zulu and Ndebele people who live in southern Africa believe that the stars …

A Rabbit Arrives!

This morning when we looked out there was a little rabbit sitting in the yard, it was snow white with red eyes so it must have escaped from somewhere.  Mum is worried that Casper our black cat will get it, he is a very good hunter, apparently when he lived in England he used to catch rabbits in the field behind their house. Because where we live there is limestone rock just below the surface we don’t see wild rabbits around us, we think it’s because they cannot burrow very deep. Mum and I watched with apprehension as Casper walked …
