These three are quite the group of climbers, already up in the sink and windowsill and moving too fast for me to get anything other than blurry photos! The only thing that seems to keep them still at the moment is when a fly invades. They were mesmerised!

Shadow and Buddy are doing well. They are happy the weather cooled and they can again spend their days in the sunroom.
