Our lot have now moved on from placing the dishes out of camera range, to more sophisticated and advanced means of irritation. Last night’s antics were particularly annoying; one brute emptied the dish on the doorstep and then waited out of sight while some muppet of a human topped it back up again and replaced the saucer lid. Once the coast was clear, he sauntered past, nudged the saucer to one side with his nose and then disappeared without so much of glance as to what was underneath. Unsurprisingly, the next half a dozen clips on the trail cam were of a rather smug feline eating every last morsel…Arghhh!

Then there’s the odd behaviour in the feeding station; for two nights running the bowl on the left has remained untouched whilst the bowl on the right has been licked clean. Their toilet etiquette seems to have improved of late, so I doubt that cross contamination is the reason. Maybe they just prefer the plain bowl on the right and have taken offence to the mice and rabbits that decorate the one on the left…who knows!
