Saved by the cat

Spent the morning at the accountant, supermarket and dry cleaner - being a 'PA' in the broadest sense - though I've seen jobs advertised that essentially involve all those things. Decided to take Monty out Granchester way to see if I could photograph a bit of filming and although their vans are around messing up the normal scenic shots there was no action underway. I did however discover a new walk - always a good thing close to home - even if it did produce the most boring set of photos I've taken all year including a pair of rapidly receding hare's ears. Called back via the builders' merchants (well actually majorly detoured via the builders' merchants) to pick up some sand for the new fire bowl which we will test out tonight.
The automatic window opener in my greenhouse has chosen the hot weather to leak hydraulic oil everywhere so I've taken a photo to send to the manufacturer in the hope they can tell me which spare part I need - and Rafiki presented herself to me on the way back up the garden - hurrah!
Other than that I've been rather grumpy today - primarily with shop assistants who want to do anything rather than assist - at least not assist people who are actually present in the shop and/or are not suppliers - grump, grump, grump.
Three GT:
1. Fridge full of BBQ food, dishwasher about to disgorge clean BBQ grills (I hope).
2. A sunny weekend forecast.
3. Camden Hells Lager chilling in the fridge.
VERY PRETTY CAT

PA is a misnomer for dogs body....I was always on the farm books for a wage for such like jobs....never actually got a wage but helped with tax apparently!
Cats are heros at the moment, I don't think Lily would run fast to save anyone! Your Rafiki is a very noble looking cT. BBQ weather at last hooragh!

@happypat I commented on somebody's FB post about that cat saying that the attack was completely unprovoked and what a nasty dog and somebody else commented that it had been provoked because it was defending territory when something was behaving unreasonably in it. Well I didn't get involved but if Monty ran across to somebody else's drive and attacked anything like that (let alone a child) I know exactly where he would be going next!!

@happypat I don't mean the cat attack was unprovoked - go cat!.

to have just a glimpse of a hare must ne magical.
the cat looks suitably regal and in total command.

Wow, this looks like a poster for a film about a cat who is a superhero or something like that ;). What a proud pose! Sounds like you have great plans for the weekend - enjoy :)!

@jannaellen Mostly clearing out a shed and taking rubbish to the tip but some of it will be ok!

The best photos are always the ones we least expect, hope you have a happy weekend

@judithg : I meant the BBQ or is that already over. I suppose clearing out can be nice (especially when it's over)...

@jannaellen I know - one down, one tomorrow - just have to earn tomorrow's!!

I saw that clip too. Impressive heroics from the cat for sure, but agree that anyone seeking to justify that sort of behaviour in a domestic dog is blindingly silly.

Rafiki has a nice noble pose here, and a good gaze off into the middle distance, like a catalogue model.

Lovely portrait of your cat, with great focus on the eyes.

This is a tremendous shot . Fav

You are talking about the same cat attack that we are! Talk about viral! Good thing we know how to sue a camera when reporting a fault! I took a picture of a crack in our 3&1/2 year old basin and sent it, and they are going to replace it! Lovely cat sitting so upright!

What a stunning cat, very grand and posh looking
