Ted - slayer of Stipa

We had wondered why the Stipa tenuissimas in the border had become a bit flattened. Then we found out why...

Stipa and Achillea 'Terracotta'



"Target identified"


"Kill, kill, kill"

"Right, what else can I disembowel?"

Fantastic!

My dog does the same with Crocosmia for some reason!

Brilliant! Ted looks a real character. I'm sure he felt it was his duty to make sure the nasty grass was deaded for you!

Ted sometimes* hisses when we stroke him and has effectively de-camped to the house around the corner which is detached, recently extended, contains a proper family and two cars (none of which we have).
*Happymouffe would like to point out that he doesn't hiss when she strokes him)

That looks like one of my cats - and it is doing exactly what it does with my Stipa. The poor grass spends most of the summer lying flat. A pity, as it is lovely moving in the breeze.

My cat casualty list this year contains 2 kinds of poppy, scabious, sedums (sedums! they're meant to be tough as old boots!) and crocosmia

Now that is perfect ! The culprit caught in pictures : ) My day lilies have been flattened by strangers in my garden .. I would rather it be a cat than a raccoon after last year's fiasco !! LOL
What a handsome cat though ... : )

I do like the combination of the Stipa and the Achiellia

How cute! Not cute that the kitty is stomping your flowers...but the expression the kitty's face is great. They think they are so sneaky and stealthy. I used to have kitty that smacked the bees on the flowers. She didn't get to go outside after that much. Her little paw swelled up double its size! Beautiful pics.
