So Violet is longing for her very own pet, despite the 2 dogs & cat that we have fluffing up the house. Her current “starvin’ for..” is a Guinea Pig. After telling her that she would need to persuade Daddy first, and that could take some time, she adopted a caterpillar. She happened across him while she was trying to catch clouds with a stick. A green juicy one that has been named ‘Catty’. He had a ride in her bike basket to be introduced to Granny today & at bedtime she put his box on her bedside table, patted the clingfilm roof and said ‘night night Catty’ as he scurried under a bit of lettuce for cover. I hope he will still be in there in the morning…..
