       Getting Our Nourishment.

One good turn deserves another.

House sitting on a two and a half-acre property at Malanda on the Atherton Tablelands Queensland. In the midst of so much beauty, with a veggie garden, fruit trees, Bantams and all the native creatures for four months was a pleasure. All that was expected of Pauline and I was to look after six cats. Just see the cats were fed, given some affection and were kept safe in doors. The cats had their outdoors enclosure and the run of a large house. So were safe happy and the birds outside were also safe.

Cats have a natural hunting instinct and can be a problem if left in the bush. People in their ignorance think it is kind to free unwanted cats into the bush but they either die or become feral and kill the native birds. Not these little sweeties we have fallen in love with them and everything here.

This is not my usual type of post but I have enjoyed this experience and wanted to share it with you. Pauline is much better at this type of post she adds all kinds of historic information and travel tips as well as illustrating it with her well-chosen photos, so for more details hit the link to My Pomme pal. You will find it more interesting.
