December 4th is International Cheetah Day – this occasion cannot go unmarked on this blog! The Cheetahs in my house are busy at the moment – the main two, Bonnie & Theo are continuing their tennis career whilst the rest of them are considering forming a cricket team and some have formed a harp orchestra. The Banana People, the Dinos and the Strikes are all back in our lives – which essentially says that the Cheetah Keeper is one stressed and unsettled little dude. The imaginaries are what gets us through the day at the moment – from the moment he wakes until he goes to sleep, he’s reliant on the reassurance that the Cheetahs bring – even if their antics are mind boggling detailed when I’m lying in bed and haven’t yet had a cup of tea. His memory of what the Cheetahs got up to last year (and the year before) on the Christmas lights here in St Albans (as I blogged about back in 2012) is detailed to the extreme – but he physically relaxes when he’s talking about them – especially when the stories are mixed in with a cuddle or walking hand in hand.
