This is our “Hobbit” tree; it did look a lot bigger standing proudly outside the shop! Phoebe, one of our cats, ran every morning to the tree for her presents, and every morning I said, “Not yet”, and she would put her head down and sulk away. I felt so sorry for her that I gave her cat teats, she has got me trained!
This is Phoebe guarding her presents from Angel.
And Angel prefers the wrapping paper anyway
Domestic animals in France are no longer viewed as “furniture” but living beings. The French Parliament voted in favour of making changes to the 200 year old Napoleonic civil code, which gave pets and farm animals the same status as an armchair!
