By Moonlight

It is dark and quiet the dead of night

I’m walking round in soft moonlight

A tasty rabbit I’ll have for my tea

As long as it does not sense me

I fear nothing as I am big

But even I will not tackle a pig

I pass close to the humans house

But go as quietly as a mouse

I saw them looking at the track

So when they’d gone I crept back

My paw print they saw big and flat

So now they know I am a cat

I don’t harm them they don’t harm me

Together we live in the forest free

But night-time is my time to roam 

And their time to stay near their home

I seem to be naming the creatures who wander, fly or crawl into our lives and cause us some amusement. Although I will state here, it’s actually my wife who names them I just comment.

Take Git! He is a small no medium-sized Gecko who can be found in the battery house and seems to wait for my wife to arrive to turn on the inverter. Then I hear ‘You little git don’t do that’. Git sits on the panel bar then just as she reaches for the switch he makes a dart up the wall, we both know they wont hurt us but after her experiences with the odd Hissing Sid any sudden movement makes her jump, which explains why all doors and windows have net frames.

Well the other evening we came home from town to find a small version of Git between the fly screen frame and the front door. My wife opened the outer door and the little git slid under the main door into the hall. Leaving both doors wide open my wife then disappeared inside telling me the gecko was behind one of the water bottles under the book shelf. So there I am on hands and knees trying to see this little thing which had put its self into the corner and was playing ‘you can’t see me’; however once it knew it was spotted it tried to make a break for it but I managed to shoo it out of the door without hurting it. Later that night I heard my wife on her way to turn off the generator ‘oh no you don’t you Git’ apparently Git himself was sitting on the wall above the doorway, she presumed, in the hope of a quick dive into the warm.

I will admit they are noisy blighter’s, we had enough of them in the little house when we first moved here all night long chatting to each other then we both used to shout SHUT UP!!!
