Tales of the Village - or Tails of the Village - Hugo and Odin
May 4, 2016 2:33pm CST
I've written before about the two tiny Siamese kittens that we met last summer when taking our regular walks around the village. One in particular was so greedy for attention and affection that he would wrap himself around my neck and purr like an engine. For many months we didn't see them and started to wonder if their human had finally got wise to the insanity of letting two such beautiful and valuable little kitties go wandering wherever they wanted to. A few weeks back we spotted one of them but he was too shy to play. Tonight we saw the two of them near the barn where the bullocks live, where we stop to talk to them and make the odd mooing noises in encouragement. The Siamese looked us up and down and then came running across the road for cuddles. We popped them up on the stone wall to give them a good rub (without the back breaking bend) and whilst we were having a cuddle, they spotted a woman with a dog. It turned out that she was their mum and the dog was their neighbour's dog. She seemed perfectly happy that Hugo and Odin (cool names - Odin is the one with the Roman nose) were getting some loving and said she didn't mind at all, although she did sometimes wonder if she ought to be worried that the boys were so totally trusting. She should be nervous. I'd grab the pair of them and take them home if it weren't for knowing that my kitties wouldn't be happy. Actually it's not true - I'd never do that but I do love to have a cuddle when I meet my little furry friends.
