Vishus Deer Patrol

We have been very worried about the vishus deer ever since we heard about the woofie that got attacked. We know they hang out in the little wood at the bottom of our fields, so we thought we had better check them out and see if they were there. We don't want them attacking our Beans.

We had a good look from higher up and we couldn't see them. We decided it would be safe to go down there.

This is one of their favourite places amongst the trees.

We can't see any sign of them.

We thought it would be safe to stop and look at the primroses. This is where the vishus deer jump over the fence to come into the field. They knock the electric fence down and dad has to keep checking it so the horses don't get out.

On nice sunny days they like to lie in the sunspot behind the two trees.

Eric: Well we haven't seen any sign of them but all this walking has made me hot, so I had a paddle in the stream to cool my feet down.

That feels much better.

Hmm, there are some smells here. We think they have been this way.

Flynn: I will go up this tree so I can see further. You keep checking for their smell down there Eric.

Eric: Okay Flynn, I'm pretty sure they have been here recently.

Flynn: I'll go up higher so I can have a really good look.

Eric: I think it is all clear Flynn. The scent is getting weaker. I think they have gone for today.

After all that hard work we went on to the earth and enjoyed a nice refreshing roll.


  1. We're glad you did not see any vishous deer. Thank you for all the pictures, it let us feel like we were right there looking with you.

  2. You were brave to go check that out. We have some that come around in the night and wander around by the pond across the street. We've never been close enough to scent them though.

  3. Dearest Eric and Flynn,
    You are such manly men...what with huntin' down them mean ol' nasty deers and all. Mommy says them pictures on your bloggy are always beautiful and she telled me what your furs look like...you guys are my heros and I am swoonin'...

    Very truly yours,
    Mazie Grace

    PS...let me know if you are flirtin' back with me, 'kay?

  4. You have a lot of territory to patrol! We're sure no vishus deers would dare come near your house with you two on patrol!

  5. Coast is clear, no vishus deer!
    You guys have the greatest land to roam. We'd love to walk the fields patrolling with you guys!

  6. You boys are expert trackers!

  7. nothing like a good roll in the dirt after a hard day's work!

  8. You two are very brave to protect your mum and dad from the vishus deer. Those are some really gorgeous pictures too. You live in such a pretty place, and you two look so handsome against the green background.

  9. We are glad you did not see any vishus deer! You are very brave to go close to their woods! That roll in the earth looked like fun!

  10. What a lot of work you both are doing to keep your beans safe. You deserve a good rest.

  11. We are glad you didn't see any vishus deer. We would hate for you to run into the deer that were in that article. The roll in the dirt sounds like a great way to end your patrols.

  12. We were so scairt you were gonna happen upon the vishus deer. Whew! Lucky you getting to roll around in the dirt.

  13. So glad there are no deer here!

  14. You are very brave man cats for checking that out. I think I might be a bit too scared to do it myself.

  15. Guys, the countryside around your place is stunningly beautiful! Please be careful. Vishus deer love to hang out in idyllic places, pretenting to be all serene and stuff.

  16. wonderful photos captured.

    the last photo was special cuz the guys got to chill and roll.

  17. That vishous deer sounds so scary! You live in a very pretty place!

  18. Hi Fellas!

    You two are so incredibly brave. And you're lucky to live in Devon. Our beans were down there this past weekend! But they didn't see any deer either -- just one heron (and a lot of little lambs).


  19. I love the country around your home, but I don't want to meet any vishus deer.

  20. That was a great walk in the woods boys. I like the roll around in the dirt bit best though.

  21. What a glorious patrol that was !!! So brave! The deer must have kept hidden when they saw you two lions stalking by!!!!

  22. I'm glad you didn't see any vishus deer. If you had, I'm sure you both could have run them off, I'll bet you guys are pretty tough.

  23. Oh, boys! That first photo of the two of you is so lovely! We can only imagine how wonderful it must be to go on your adventures in the fields with your Mom.

    We are on Mom's blog today.

  24. Oah My God, Eric and Flynn,
    what are great adventurers you are!!!!!
    You are both just amazing!!!!!

  25. Oh my! You had a lovely long walk, checking things out! You look like your having such fun rolling on the earth!

  26. You two have it all! What a great place to live and freedom to roam. That dirt bath looks amazingly fun....I have to go(sneak)downstairs to the heated concrete floor and I just roll and roll, but that sun heated earth bath shows your concern for the environment=^Y^=Toy

  27. i am glad you didn't see any vishus deer.

    The primroses are lovely, mum misses primroses even though we have other spring flowers in London. She is going down to Cornwall on the train tomorrow to see Cornish Grandma for a few days, I will tell her to wave to you when she is going past.

  28. You two have the greatest adventures! I can't believe that you went in the little stream, Eric. You and Flynn are very brave explorers.

  29. We so enjoyed doing that walk wiv you. We were very glad no vishus deer showed up. We loved all of the picshures AND ADORED THE PRIMROSES.

  30. you two are such brave mancats! the Lady especially loved the rolling picture. you know, she hasn't let us on the computer for days and days and days. I finally had to crawl halfway onto her lap and purr a little and ask her pleeeeease to let us visit our furrends again. it wasn't fun, but a Grr's gotta do what a Grr's gotta do. I've missed you.

  31. oooh, ginger boys!
    Mum says she would like to roll in the lovely green grass with you.
    We're glad you didn't meet any vishus deer.

  32. You two are so incredibly brave. And you're lucky to live in Devon..
