put the cat among the ducklings

The eleven ducks returned to our pond this evening.

The neighbours' cat was fascinated.

"How do I get dinner without getting my paws wet?"

But once it realised it was out of luck, it pretended indifference in a very cat-like way.

"I'm just sitting here."

The ducks, meanwhile, enjoyed their splashing about, practising for when they can fly.


Then they settled down to preen, and then roost for the evening.  Here you can clearly see there are still eleven.  (Mother has now forsaken them completely, it seems.)
