Warning belles

The agency cat is a trifle spooked by the sound of its own two-bell collar. The ever present jangle/tinkle seems to have worked so far. No sign of any dead birds. The tuis don't even seem alarmed.

Ah! The huntress is foiled!

Dear Belle, we hope so. We will be wearing sackcloth and ashes if he ever brings sparrow mcnuggets home for tea.

But I've misled you by my use of the too seductive pun "warning belles"! New Tabby is technically a male, so he's a would-be hunter rather than a hunteress, alhough as he is still trying out the rather large shoes of his predecessor the magnificent dowager Tabby, we do sometimes forget and call the poor pretty boy "she"... (and he has had the 'snip' so he's not very butch at all.)
