Jack is making a lot of friends in Barlick. I don't know why, maybe it's his face markings but people on the street feel the need to stroke him. Women in particular fall for him.

As you know, I had a bad experience with Joe, the lurcher from Irlam. I was very wary about taking another feral dog on but I'm beginning to think that Jack will make it as a member of the team. He's good at coming to hand when off the lead but I'm not saying he'd take any notice if he was distracted.

He's fast and very agile and seems to have lungs as big as a bucket, I haven't heard him pant as though he's out of breath even after a hard run. As for jumping, he's like a cat. Here he is on his favourite perch. Someone asked me the other day why I don't stop him doing it. It's easier to clean the drainer twice a day!


[This topic started as Jack's blog but in Jan 2008 I had to put him down because he started attacking strange dogs.  His successor is Black Jack. a Patterdale pup, no point erasing Jack the Lurcher from history....  he was a good dog and what happened wasn't his fault.  He had too bad a start.....]

It isn't starving then---just an occasional caller if it hasn't liked tea at home I suspect.

Lodger called in again last night for a sleep and a snack. Not too sure Glo. A family recently moved out suddenly under mysterious circumstances and it may be that it was their cat.  I shall carry on feeding just in case I am it's saviour.....

Very well could be theirs Stanley. At least it won't starve now.

Do you know the exact house that the people moved out of,, maybe one of the neighbours would know what the cat looked like.  It might even be still hanging around there during the day waiting for them to come home.

If it is not around during the day it could belong to someone who turns it out at night.

News of the cat nest has spread, neighbour's black and white cat is having a snooze in there during the day. Feline equivalent of hot-desking?

One of my acquired cats demanded ( more in Summer than Winter ) , to go out at around 11pm , coming back in when I opened up the kitchen door at 7 in the morning. [ Too complex to get a cat flap in , she spent the night anywhere from nearby open woodland to under the car in the driveway ]

I thought you might be pleased to know that Jack has finished dealing with his Xmas presents from Ann. The string of plastic sausages bit the dust yesterday. Funny thing is that he knows exactly what he is allowed to chew and never oversteps the mark. Unlike Big Jack who would occasionally decide to take his frustrations out on something useful. In has time he attacked a pair of jeans, the roof lining in the Yellow Shed, a pair of binoculars and my old camera bag! Despite that I loved him to bits!

Just popped out to see what the weather was doing and if it is light enough for our walk and Jack went and had a sniff at the cat nest. I looked and realised that the cat was in residence. It's Maureen's cat from across the way and it was quite happy because it knows Jack. It didn't stir but peered at me above the edge of the box. Nice to know that it has found a good place to get out of the weather when necessary!
