Sham arrives in Kent and goes all fuzzy in the pub!

I said a fond farewell to Neyeli and my friends and travelled overnight to stay with Moonflower and family in the beautiful Kent countryside. I was here bright and early on Saturday 20th June and greeted with lots of hugs. It seems Moonflower was pleased to see me!

I was introduced to Scruffy the dog, Mac the cat and Mr Moonflower of course, then shown to my room…yes I have my very own room here too. After leaving my friends behind at Neyeli’s I had wondered whether I might get a bit lonely….but I needn’t have worried because as you can see above there were new friends here waiting to meet me.

Moonflower showed me some of her special things and the healing feathers reminded me of my previous lodgings. I was also given my own drum to use during my stay to help with meditations and journeying.

On Saturday evening we visited the local pub where they always have a warm welcome for visitors. I met some of Moonflower’s family and friends and made another new one of my own. He is called George after the pub. I’m afraid we both look a little fuzzy in the photo as we had sampled some of the local ale.

It may be a while before I have something more to write as Moonflower is busy preparing for a holiday in Dorset in two weeks time, and guess what? They have asked me to go along too. In the meantime I will have a chance to rest and patrol the garden for lots of slugs and snails. I have been told that if I am very good I may have an outing next weekend. Apparently there is a big castle nearby - ooh sounds exciting.

Sham hits the road again

Today I am leaving Neyeli's house and am on my way to stay with Moonflower.
I have spent the morning eating slugs and snails so my belly is full for the journey and have had a group hug with Pandy and Jacko.

I've really enjoyed my time here by the sea but now I look forward to seeing Moonflower and wonder what exciting things I will be getting up to.
Bye for now and I'll write when I have arrived at my next destination

Love Sham

I’ve really enjoyed my stay with Neyeli and her family and I’ve learned lots of new skills. Neyeli has shown me how to paint on feathers and how to clean them when the birds give them as a gift. I even helped her parcel up a couple of things for posting but I wasn’t very good at that as the sticky clear stuff kept sticking to my fur.

While I’ve been here we have been to some nice places. I played in the sand at the beach and did some sun bathing but I didn’t like those big white birds that shouted all the time. I think Neyeli called them gulls.

We also went to the pine woods and I hoped I would make friends with a red squirrel but we didn’t see any. The nice ranger at the woods says they have all gone which is very sad. We had a picnic and I said hello to some big black crows and one of them gave me a feather as a gift.

Today I am spending the day in the garden, resting and eating lots of slugs and snails ready for my next journey.
