I'm not the best barber and Drummy new cage.


Derrick moved into his new home, we are still trying to build his outside home but the rain keeps coming every couple of days.
My friend barbara has lent it to me for a while till we get the outside area ready.
Kidney sat and watched for about 20 mts.
They had a bit of a chat, what would they talk about.
My garden cart is rotting away time for some repairs I think.
Drummy is always looking for snails every time you move things she is there with you just in case one is hiding.
As you can see the wheels fell off.
The beer fairy's barber is away so I attacked his head with clippers.
These are his mug shots.

For some reason it's growing a bit patchy, well they say there is only a few weeks between a good haircut and a bad. There is a black thing on the end it's interchangeable for different cuts but the beer fairy put on the one he wanted and he didn't click it in very well and it fell off and I didn't notice, well he won't have to go and get it cut for a while and it is summer most of the time.

  1. I would have done a worse job I think. They may even have been some skin lost. Shaky hands and precision jobs don't go together. And the smaller portion wouldn't let me anywhere near his hair (what there is of it) with a cutting implement.
    Love the conversation between the Beer Fairy, Derrick and Kidney. Solving the problems of the world?

    1. There is much to talk about when you are a cat a bird and a man, maybe they could solve the problems of the world but would they tell anyone.

  3. I think the haircut looks fine, cool for the summer. A nice wash and wear style.
    Nice of Kidney to keep Derrick company while he gets used to the bigger cage.

    1. I think they have just discovered each other the other cage was hung up but this one is a bit heaver and much longer so it's stood on the bench that drummy sleeps on, all birds together at night.

  4. I was laughing to myself about the haircut. It looked ok in the first couple of photos but the last photo shows how bad it is. Maybe next time you will do a better job.

    1. No he will most likely go back to his barber they like to discuss the world problems while doing the job.

  5. The hair cut looks an ok one. A few weeks and all will be well.
    I always cut my husbands hair, have done so for 50 years.

  6. Hello, Looks like Kidney is enjoying Derrick's company. I enjoy seeing Derrick, Kidney and Drummy. Hair does grow quickly, before long the Beer Fairy will need another haircut. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

    1. Well they simular in size, but Kidney has always liked birds but I suspect she would like to eat them but they are just to fast for her now, she is getting old.

    Brave. You... and him!!! I had a go at the father's toenails this morning. A chainsaw might have been handy... the critters are looking well and happy - hope you are too! YAMxx

    1. All well here but a few aches and pains.
      Toenails no I would not like to tackle those, the beer fairy does his own as I do too.

    1. I made a mistake Drummy was never caged here, I ment Derrick.
      Drummy has a dog kennel to sleep in but doesn't like it she sleeps on the bench next to derricks cage.

    1. Funny since she has stopped laying she has gone off snails but as I have no idea how old she it might be age, she often sits next to me and goes to sleep now.

    1. My son has already been told that Derrick will go to him when we both die as these fellows can live for about 60 odd years and will most likely outlive both of us.

  12. Crikey Merle ..... you'd NEVER get a job in a hairdressers, aye?? Not even in a doggy grooming place!! Mum was laughing so hard reading this post. The black interchangeable thing fell off and you didn't notice????? Fair dinkum ..... the beer fairy's lucky to have a head on his shoulders. Mum reckons he is a real good sport. If she attacked my Dad with the clippers like that he'd NEVER agree to have his photo taken.
    Derrick sure seems to have settled in well and I'm sure he would be a match for Kidney. That beak looks as if it could do a bit of damage, aye??

    1. Funny thing is he likes it.
      Hot here at the moment so it's nice and cool.
      Kidney likes all animals except other cats and is very fond of most birds they like her too, no one told her they were food so she likes them.

  13. Hello Merle yes I finally worked out how to comment without being anonymous. I don't have a blog as yet being out here in the bush keeps me pretty busy. Your effort at hair cutting was OK and I bet bf is much cooler now.

  14. Hi Merle! I give you credit for even trying to cut hair - it would end badly for my hubby if I got ahold of some clippers, lol. Aw, cute drummy - always enjoy seeing pictures of that fellow. Love kitty on the outside looking in at the bird! Have a wonderful day - always enjoy your posts! Jane

  15. .. Hi Merle.... Glad Derrick likes the new cage... more space to climb.. I love the pic of Kidney and the Beer Fairy chatting with him..if the weather holds you might be able to put up the aviary...

    1. She likes slugs too.
      The beer fairy wouldn't eat her eggs when she was laying because she ate slugs but I did they were very nice.
