Too cute.

Hello. I saw a man walking a small furry animal last week in a village I was passing through. I stopped the car and had to ask about it. Because I am nosey. He had it on a harness and lead, similar to what you might use to walk a cat. I was introduced to Amos. We were next to the church so he lifted it up on to the wall so I could have a better look. Isn't he cute. 
The man lives in another village a few miles away. He had brought Amos to walk in different place, so he doesn't get bored. We had a lovely chat all about how he got Amos, how old is he, and where does he live. Amos lives in the house, he has a crate but can wander around, and he does his business in a litter tray just like a cat. 
The man has kept stoats as pets for many years. At the moment he has just this one, he has reared it from birth. 
I didn't know anything about stoats until I looked it up. Apparently they sleep a lot but are very active when they are awake. There you go. What a cute little fella. 
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip.   ilona

    1. There is a similarity. Here is a US web site which shows the differences. The laws in the US are different to ours regarding keeping them as pets.

  4. It’s a good job you made Gloria in time to be our next prime minister. She is a much more attractive proposition than nutty Boris again! You should get her on Look North. She can use all your very sensible politics. Love your blog . Ann T
