Toby is my Terrific cat. We got him 6 years ago from the local SPCA. His mother had been handed over to them already pregnant. I like to support this sort of organisation as they do a great job rescuing animals who are treated badly or just unwanted.
Toby knows how to relax and when its hot he sleeps on his back.
He is a great hunter and helps keep the rodents under control. He loves catching rabbits and comes home with a very full belly and sleeps the day away.
These Chinese Painted Quail (also known as Button Quail) live in my aviary with the Canary's and Finches.
The male has very striking markings. They are small quail at about 12cm (4 1/2 in) tall.
The female is a silver variety. Their chicks are like little bumble bees running around the floor. They can be a bit hard to breed but hopefully this year these two will hatch the eggs she is sitting on and raise their chicks successfully.
