“Author: Oliver Wendell Holmes

Poor conquered monarch! though that haughty glance
Still speaks thy courage unsubdued by time,
And in the grandeur of thy sullen tread
Lives the proud spirit of thy burning clime;—
Fettered by things that shudder at thy roar,
Torn from thy pathless wilds to pace this narrow floor.

My Formative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.
,
My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.

    The Holmes quote is profound, to put it mildly. He has caught it, & so have you. The eloquence of that expression tells the tale. Hard to tell how old she is. Any idea how long she’s been there? In a word, beautiful, Malcolm.

  • I made a few enquires, and all I couls glean from a member of staff Shelia nearly all her life around 10 yrs.

    Thank you for stoppi ng by

    A wonderful closeup portrait of this beautiful creature! I like to think that sometimes their lives are saved by living in captivity, but what kind of life is it for a cat like this? She looks well fed.

  • Thank you very much Dot, but their instinct is to run/ roam/ and stretch their legs/, many thanks for stopping by
