I've been asked how Polar is doing. What can I say! He's now taller than Bracken, he's extremely naughty - there isn't a day goes by when he doesn't get into mischief. He has his own recycling policy - all plastic bottles should be recycled, even full ones. (Jane of Pepis tells me that's because he had empty plastic bottles to play with at the refuge). If he can get to the cardboard recycling bag, then the contents get distributed around the courtyard. Next come the shoes - he's already got several pairs of his own but naturally he wants the ones which we still prefer to wear! Then come the socks! He was given a bag full of socks with holes in - but no, he has to delve in my walking boot bag and pinch my socks out of that!
