It has been 3 months since one of our cats, Mackie, died and we have been thinking for a while that it would be nice to get another cat to keep our dear Grimalkin. Although she seems happy and settled, we think it would be nice for her to have someone to play with when we’re out at work.
So today we headed off to Battersea Cats and Dogs home to see if they had a match for Grimalkin (and for us). It was an open day, and because it’s the weekend and just at the beginning of half term, they had rehomed 16 yesterday and so there weren’t that many cats to see and none really that were suitable for Grimmy or for us. However, we will try again later on in the week – they have new cats coming in all the time.
As we were leaving, I took a few photos of my chimney of the day. For those who don’t know, these are the chimneys of the now decommissioned Battersea Power Station. This river-front area is being redeveloped and the latest plan for this protected building includes, I think, a cinema, a shopping complex, and homes. The world-famous chimneys (their fame partly due to their appearance on the Pink Floyd Animals album cover of 1977) have to be part of the design for the redevelopment, a challenge and a commitment for the developers.
*yes, I know that the title doesn’t relate to the Animals album but I didn’t just want to call this blog post Dog or Sheep.
