The Big T and I spent quite a lot of time this last summer at the Muriwai gannet colony.  Although these gannets don’t necessarily mate for life, breeding pairs do share incubation and chick-care duties.

Watching the interactions between these magnificent birds, it is hard not to project human friendship traits onto their behaviour.

Dogs may be “man’s best friend” but cats understand the need for space in a relationship (their space at least). That suits me.

Our fur-baby died at the beginning of the year and I miss her terribly (cat allergy notwithstanding).
