Sunday was a something of a Curate's Egg - nice in parts. We had a good day though. You shouldn't put off being happy until you get a better day.
F had arranged with the Mum of the cat-torturer (MoC-T) that we would all go to Sygrou Forest, to enjoy some green space. It turns out that even lots of Athenians don't know where that is.
Still in the city, however. Not far from the 2004 Olympic Stadium.
MoC-T had to research it online
Then the cat-torturer got sick, so we went without them.
We got a nice walk round a big country estate with pine forest and olive groves, and other kinds of trees that produce human food, and beehives (lots of beehives). They even had beehives in the garden of the big villa that was originally the home for all this.
These days the estate is a sort of agricultural school.

With their dogs.
We didn't see any feline cousins at all.
Or squirrels. They might not have squirrels here. I'm happy about that too.
Things went a bit downhill after that; we visited the cat-torturer. However he wasn't all that interested in me (I'm happy) and wanted to show my humans a new robot thing that drives around the floor. I discovered a safe place among all the chair legs under their dining table and studied the robot thing. It drove on some kind of tracks and waved an arm, and made noises. (NB from F - an excavator)
We swapped a big bag of the sawdust out of my litter box for a bag of glass jars. I think my humans got the better end of that deal, but MoC-T was very excited by the sawdust and wants more. I can oblige. I'm working diligently on turning wood pellets into sawdust.
On our way back to the van F stole oranges off trees along the street. She said no one would mind because they aren't the kind that humans like to eat. I was riding in my pack on her front and got clobbered by a couple that fell when she pulled their mates. Not so happy.
I guess my next blog post is going to be about marmalade.
