Skedaddle

Tuesday 4th December 2018, 1.05pm (day 2,658)

Skeddadle, 4/12/18

Unconnected to any other aspect of my life, I briefly encountered this gorgeous creature today. We flirted. I raised the camera. He grinned… look, you can see him grinning… the shot was taken, we parted ways. Skedaddle is his name, it seems — for how he moves when placed on a smooth wooden floor, and faced with the cats who also live in his house.

Mathilda poses

Mathilda, 28/8/18

Hebden Bridge, and my life, have their local personalities, some of whom have appeared multiple times on the blog. Mathilda, who is generally in charge of the territory around the junction of Valley Road and Victoria Road, is definitely one of them, and this is her fourth appearance on the blog in total. And a very attractive creature she is too.

David Bow-wow

Finn the dog, 26/7/18

This dog’s actual name is Finn, but with eyes like that the nickname David Bow-wow just seems right to me. He’s one of the more affectionate creatures you will meet.

Mathilda wants back in

Wednesday 28th March 2018, 12 noon (day 2,407)

Matilda, 28/3/18

Mathilda demands to be only the third animal to definitively make the blog three times (though Humph the heron has a case to have beaten her to it, if the various pictures do indeed depict the same bird). She looks annoyed at the neglect, and that at some point since her last appearance, her collar has gone. And she’s got a bit greyer, but then again haven’t we all.

Waiting

Saturday 18th November 2017, 12.25pm (day 2,277)

Waiting dog, 18/11/17

In 2017, particularly since early June, I have been quite mobile, with lots of photos taken elsewhere. Where there have been bouts of time spent mainly at home they haven’t lasted long. But for the rest of the year, at least, this will change; if I do go elsewhere it’ll be for a walk or a football match, and that’ll be all. We are on Hebden time for a while. I hope I seem happier about this than this dog did today.

Ellie and Maggie

Sunday 3rd July 2016, 3.00pm (day 1,774)

Ellie and Maggie, 3/7/16

Back in January 2015 Ellie (left, at that time aged 8 months) and Maggie (right) appeared on the blog in consecutive days; here they are together. Hard to credit that in the intervening 18 months Ellie has grown from a baby into a little girl with an entire functioning vocabulary. Time passes, we all change…

Chilled out

Monday 27th June 2016, 6.45pm (day 1,768)

Chilled out cat, 27/6/16

I’m trying to feel like this. It’s possible, if I just focus on my immediate locality.

Dog/owner couple

Dog/owner couple, 12/1/16

I know a few dog/owner couples — connoting not just the usual doggy relations but where the two actively look alike. For an example of what I mean, well, see here….

I’m staying in, thanks

Cat behind window, 9/11/15

And a good move on the cat’s part, seeing as today was quite possibly the worst day of weather of 2015; a foul, foul day. Note the hands of the photographer reflected in the window; but I’m the one out in the cold, wind and rain.

Milo

Friday 8th May 2015, 12.05pm (day 1,352)

Milo, 8/5/15

I am here in Dundee to finish off writing a paper with my colleague Annalisa and this task was undertaken today at her house; and this is the man of said house. The rest of us are just staff. Milo becomes the third cat in a row to feature on this blog where I’ve known its name, after Harry and Mathilda, the last two CCSs (Cheap Cat Shots).
