With all the kitten activity, it was time to devote some serious time to LucyFur today, lest she become an unhappy cat, thinking that she's been rejected ... which means lots of time in the yard with us.  Only ... her bird-watching activities require, shall we say, monitoring.  The quails - several pairs of them this year, including one with only one leg (Cassie, as in Hopalong C- ) - have just started to produce their chicks - little flocks of ten or twelve at a time running around - not yet in the yard (that takes something of a hop and a jump) - though of course the patrolling of Lucy and Lola has to be stepped up the minute they get over the wall.  The quails themselves, though, are fine guardians of their space and safety.
