Top of the stairs

Zhukov, zonked out: with colour coordination!

It isn't in the nursery, it isn't in the town...

Auditions for "2001: A Space Odyssey"

If I were a 1980s chicklit author, this would be a fab back-cover photo.

Zhukov and the netbag

I was planting a sapling for the BBC's tree-planting campaign the other week, and Zhukov promptly latched on to the netbag which had been around the root ball, and played with it for hours. It's still his official favourite toy.

Zhukov and the glove

For some peculiar reason, Zhukov really likes being stroked with my suede-palmed weightlifting gloves. Here is the incriminating footage.

Zhukov Appreciation Day continues with his favourite activity.

Jingle Bells

It's Zhukov Appreciation Day! Here he is getting into the seasonal spirit by playing with a jingle bell.

Sleeping with the rats

Today I found about one-quarter of a rat on the doorstep; the head, feet, tail and part of the skin. It looked like some kind of Mafia warning.

I don't know if Ayesha and/or Zhukov are responsible, but they are the most likely suspects. If it's them, I'm not sure whether to be proud or appalled.
