Backyard Visitors

The neighbourhood’s cats have started coming into my backyard now that Pippin is no longer around. This is Harley. She’s very small and very friendly.

I don’t know this cat’s name. I suspect it’s a stray. It usually runs away when it sees me. Today it found a cozy, warm spot sleeping on a mop.

“Knowledge is a dangerous thing. But ignorance is no protection.”
Masha du Toit, The Broken Path

“What must I do now?”
Mrs. Muller considered her silently for a while. “You are still a child. You must go where you are told and do as you are told. But it won’t always be so. Soon you will be in charge of yourself. Until that time: Be aware. Listen. Look. Touch. Smell. And remember. But for now, you must go home.”
Masha du Toit, Strange Neighbours

“But he’s still your family, right? You run together. See, that’s important. Nothing’s more important. But you can’t,” she coughed again, “you can’t have a pack that’s so big that just everybody’s in it. I’m not saying you shouldn’t care about people. Try to help them. But you can’t take it all on yourself, girl. That’s all I’m saying.”
Masha du Toit, Wolf Logic

Masha Toit Thanks Malla :)

I always struggle with reviews because I'm "spoilerphobic".

Masha Toit Hi Malla - glad to meet you here as well :)

Wow - what a wonderful comment. I dont expect much money to come out of this project - it's more about reaching out with my stories, hoping people will enjoy them. Life can be tough - got to find those pockets of magic that still exist! :)
