Daisies, buttercups and forget-me-nots swirl around my knees as I stride intently ’round the field and meadows.
I smile to think how they must seem to the cat, who every day trots dutifully at my side on my morning walks.
The flowers tower resolutely over his head and shoulders as he surges forwards with determination; like a clumsy dolphin carving the surf. Only a swishing tail is visible above the canopy.
Wet paws and purring are my questionable reward as I lift him carefully over a particularly stubborn bunch of thistles.
Companionship can be a strange thing; but nevertheless a thing of great joy and wonder. So take it where you can!
Thanks for reading and enjoy the day,
