Home visit: Remy

Despite this day’s sluggishness, we ventured out for an appointment. We visited Remy the one-eyed old boy , aka Toby, and his family. Thankfully, the weather held. It was an enjoyable visit and a great chance to know Toby’s family better – I could barely remember who was whom that first time!

Toby’s 4 housemates
(all rescued from the streets by his parents before him)

Cookie, the energetic young ‘un who loves dashing out the gate any chance he gets

Belle, grand dame and about the same age as Remy. Also Cookie’s bud

Claire, on her favourite perch, looking out onto the spacious balcony

Milky, who’s shy but obliging

Remy aka Toby

This is the old boy himself. Looking good and as characteristically calm.

The indelible evidence of his unknown ordeal before we found him

Old habits die hard: Waiting for a chance to slip into the kitchen. (He was later found on kitchen premises and he had an accomplice – Milky)
