Inspired by bee guard-dog Lucky, Ealing Chairman Clare Vernon has kindly sent me photos of her cats Simba and LeoRex for our next Ealing newsletter and has also let me put them up here.
She says “Fame for the Boys!! I think they are very handsome but l am their Mum. They don’t seem to have any trouble with the bees and do seem to enjoy watching them.”
No robbing going on whilst Simba keeps watch…
Is he sleeping, or just pretending? No doubt he is ready to leap into action if trouble occurs.
Meanwhile deputy guard cat LeoRex keeps an eye on Clare’s equipment. Making sure this nuc is suitably cosy for the bees is an important job.
Aren’t they gorgeous? I love Simba’s thick fluffy tail! Does anyone else have bee-guard pets?
