Sorry ive not been around for a while. work commitments. Anyway just a quick update After sooty recovered from being spayed princess promptly kicked her out lol. However sooty comes "home" everyday at 7am and 7pm on the dot for breakfast and dinner and princess protects her whilst she eats. I think once the cold weather hits princess will allow her back in as i dont see princess much at the moment as she is always on guard outside in the garden. i still get my 5.30 am alarm call though 2 photos attached 1 showing princess guarding sooty whilst she eats.click to enlarge them.
