The Watch Pot

Something caught the eye of the Four Abyssinian's on Saturday morning. It kept the four furry friends and The Housekeeper transfixed for over THREE hours!

Everyone watched .....

and watched .....

Amber kept watch from the best vantage point whilst everyone else had a break .....

 Jasper and Dino came back and took a closer look .....

 Crystal came back to see if anything had changed .....

 .... but on the basis that nothing had changed, she decided to show her tummy to the camera .....

Jasper tried a change of position too, whilst Crystal went back to watching .....

And they watched .....

 And they watched .....

 Crystal and Amber watched .....

 Jasper and Dino watched .....

 And then when everyone else was bored, Amber took up sole responsibility - and watched .....

And then took over guard cat duty to stop any strangers from coming in to watch .....

The Housekeeper gave up what she was doing and settled down, lying on her front, to watch .....

Jasper gave up watching and and made himself a nest on the back of The Housekeeper's legs

(Note: It's not very easy to turn your arm, wrist and camera 180 degrees to take a picture of a cat who is sitting on the back of your own legs! Three pictures of the ceiling deleted!!!)

But eventually, after all that waiting, The Housekeeper spied a tiny copper coloured beetle, the size of an adults little fingernail, crawling through the stones !!!!
(He's in the middle, on the LHS of the pale stone)
