Mrs Murgatroyd doesn’t bring her babies every night – or at least, I don’t often see her or her baby. They visited the other night for the first time in about 2 weeks, and this little baby seems to remember me – straight over to me to take the apple, and will let me stroke her from head to end of tail. She likes to curls her tail around my finger, as does Kitten who turns out to be a boy…
Apologies for lack of super sharp focus – you all know the story: I’m holding a torch in one hand and shooting with the other, no spare hand to make fine adjustments!

Footnote: they came again last night, and of course I didn’t have my camera with me. The baby is noticeably bigger but still being carried around on Mrs M’s back occasionally. Still up for a cuddle too!
