Monster is very happy outside.
He loves it and follows us happily around the croft chatting all the way. In fact he is rarely silent.
He has an “enquiring mind”.
This time of year we have lots of birds (mostly starlings) nesting in the drystone walls and old sheds.
They are clever and know the buildings and their set-up well. They have always nested carefully.
Monster is very unsuccessful on the bird-front. It is not for the lack of trying, though.
The downside of Monster is that he still wants to Rule the World or at least BeAnne. She is enjoying the helpless victim role and playing it to the Gods. Monster sits and waits for her sometimes springing out in pretend rage. Then BeAnne quivers and has to be rescued from the savage beast and promptly given love, attention and a possible bravery treat.
I sort of feel we are all being played here.
But outside is a huge success and has helped WW3. I have explained that apart from loving us, Monster has to make BeAnne his friend. Liittle steps.
Monster says he will work on this special skill….. later, one day. He’s a bit busy now.
Btw, we are thinking of changing Monster’s name to Vlad!
