Sea View, The Bengal and A Pie

25 Feb

This morning, it being cold, crisp and clear, we could see the sea from our bedroom window when we drew the curtains. How lovely is that? Shame about all the wires but it really was that blue!

The Bengal cat visited again. Can you see the plethora of white feathers on the ground? Something plucked a pigeon yesterday, no body to be seen, just a mass of feathers….. I don’t think that was done by a cat.

I’ve made a couple of individual Chicken and Leek pies today to put in the freezer. In fact, we share one but they would be for one for most appetites.

    I would love to have a sea view to greet me each morning. The pie looks inviting even before cooking.

      We know the sea is there but many mornings are too grey to see it! Then as the leaves come on the trees they obscure our view so these days are treasures indeed! 🙂

    Usually a raptor when it’s plucked like that

      That’s what we thought but the next day there was a headless pigeon too. The first kill left only feathers, the second kill was a headless half plucked pigeon.

    Cats do pluck a pigeon like that.

      I have now looked it up after reading your comment and there’s quite a lot about it. I do hope our new cat visitor is not the culprit though the murders have only occurred since her arrival. Thank you for taking the time to tell me that.
