There’s a bunch of wild kittens hanging out on the edge of the national park near our brother-in-law’s. We’re pretty sure the mother cat was abandoned when the manager of the local cafe left town. We’ve managed to trap the first cat and will ask the ranger to collect it. As much as I love my own indoor cat, Seagull, this is one less native wren eating machine out in the scrub. #keepcatsindoors #neuteryourpets #desexyourpets via Instagram http://ift.tt/2F2sV3f

One of the absolute negatives about moving to regional Australia will be the increased reliance on motorised transport. Our target location around Margaret River seems to be _not_ cycle unfriendly, but still hazardous. There is a twice daily bus north to Perth, but only schoolbuses otherwise. Even if we are lucky enough to find a convenient location, in the longer term we will still be motor vehicle dependent in the greater scheme of things. Unless of course we or peak oil can totally change the dominant mode of Australian life?
Regardless, looking after what we’ve got is important and that means repairing Jaffa’s rust. Thanks to my brother for his old mining overalls. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2GaQV10
