Eily’s Report – 8th September

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

When you see a third crop of silage being harvested from a field, you tell yourself that maybe it’s not a bad year after all and because it’s early September still, a fourth crop may come.  An old man of the roads used to go around here one time and in spite of his poor station in life, he always said that hope was a grand thing and who are we to argue with that.

I must tell  you the tale of the cat. About two weeks ago a beautiful black kitten arrived into my daughter’s house in Cork City. It was raining at the time but the little lad was dry as a bone and pleading for food and shelter. So she gave him some bread and milk which he cherished and because she had no facilities for him indoors, he bedded down in the garden on the warm sunny evening. Now because he was dry when he arrived on a wet evening, it could only be imagined that he came on the engine of a car or some vehicle. Next morning before driving to the shop, she checked to see where was the elusive feline ,nd when she couldn’t find him she went about her business,only to find that when she returned into her own drive, the little black beauty calmly stepped out from the body of the car. They didn’t want a cat,but the cat had other ideas. He was perfectly behaved asked for food when he wanted it and lovingly coiled himself around any leg that stayed long enough in one place. Even the most anti-cat member of the family softened to him. Some of the family went on holiday two hours drive away and a couple of days later, some others went on a day trip to join them. Before they left there was the now usual search for the cat, but again without success. So on arriving home from their half day tour guess what the little black beauty once again popped out of the engine. Nobody can understand how he survives on these trips both long or short but I imagine his nine lives must be running rather thin by now, though I hope not.  It’s the accepted  thing now that anywhere they are going with the car they have an extra passenger. To the shops, anywhere. You hear a new one every day.
