I had planned to post an Oliver pic today, but then it hit me that I've posted a lot less pictures of Felix than the rest of the maffia. So here's Felix instead! He's on his way out into the colourful autumn plants. I'm personally very fond of this picture.
Felix is a roamer. His LotR name would be "Strider" because he is a king living rough. Sometimes he's gone for 2-3 days during which I usually worry, but not as much as I used to when he was younger. I've figured out he has his kingdom in the forest behind the house and I think he's got something of a burrow under a very big fir tree where he can spend the night and stay dry even if it's pouring outside.
I guess he likes to stalk the forest and bother the squirrels. I know he can keep watch at rodent holes for like 48 hours so sometimes I think that's the only thing he actually does when he's gone for a while. For those now worrying about the birds and the rodents in the forest I can calmly say that he doesn't seem to catch that many. He's usually hungry like a wolf when he comes home and easily gobbles down more food than the other three cats eat together on a whole day. You won't believe how much this cat can eat and still stay skinny!
After living rough for two days he usually sleeps for at least 12 hours before he eats some more. Then he's really cuddly and happy to be home again, which is nice.
