Dragon's nest.



Up the hill in the sunshine, cold in the wind on a bright day in May, Elmo went walking, and climbing, for, in a tangle of twigs in a wind blown tree he found a nest.



On reflection though, careful consideration of the size of the nest, Elmo decided that it probably belonged to a dragon not a bird. And it wasn't that Elmo was afraid, because Elmo's don't get scared, he said. It was more that dragons are sacred to cats. So he paid short homage to the twig pile, and descended once more to the green, that set off his beautiful fire coloured coat. ( Fire, he said, to honour the dragon flames for it would seem, according to Elmo, that ginger cats are sacred to dragons too)





So, after a short but perfect balancing act it was time to take Her back to Her studio. She is painting cats.

It takes a wise cat to respect dragons.

Elmo the living flame is quite right that dragons respect cats and cats respect dragons... especially, dragons love ginger cats because they look very beautiful. I know because a ginger cat told me so.

I loved this, it made me smile. My cats would love to search for dragon nests.... maybe one day they will be as lucky as you and find one.
