This poem I chose because believe it or not I am currently doing a Chicken Behaviour and Welfare course online with Edinburgh University. After owning chickens for quite a few years I decided to learn more about them. After all you are never too old to learn new things.
Also this is my 100th blog post. Thank you for all the ‘likes’ and ‘follows’ everyone.
Cock – Crow
Out of the wood of thoughts that grows by night
To be cut down by the sharp axe of light, –
Out of the night, two cocks together crow,
Cleaving the darkness with a silver blow:
And bright before my eyes twin trumpeters stand,
Heralds of splendour, one at either hand,
Each facing each as in a coat of arms:
The milkers lace their boots up at the farms.
This was the first cockeral that I ever owned his name was Charles and his hens were Queen Elizabeth, Eugenie, Victoria, Diana, Beatrice and Catherine.
Happy Friday Everyone!

What Is Your Cat Really Thinking? by Dannyboy and Sophie Johnson
About the authors
Sophie Johnson is a writer and comedian from London.
Sadly I could not find anything about Dannyboy.
The secrets of the feline world are out! Find out what your curious kitty really thinks when you try to play with them, why they love knocking things off tables and why they get really cheesed off when your culinary skills fall short of their expectations.
My husband received this book as a Christmas present and when he had read it I borrowed it to see what it was all about. I am actually a dog person but my husband has two cats that I became mommy to when we got married. Living with cats for the last few years has taught me a lot but mainly that they are nothing like dogs!
This book contains cartoons of cats and what they are thinking for each cartoon and I can say hand on heart that most of the thoughts that these cartoon cats are having I can imagine my cats thinking. It is almost like the book is about my two cats.
My favourite one in particular is shown below. I quite like the idea of my cats blogging about their humans.
I really enjoyed this book and it is obviously written by a cat owner because it is so truthful. It is a really quick read, hence the short review but good fun and a real giggle. If you are a cat owner I highly recommend it. I gave this little book 5 Dragons out of 5 Dragons.
