Schizo Bitch and the Kitsch Hen

The 5th day inside.
Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with the food?

The banana looks a little past its prime. Perhaps my friend Rudolph would like it.

Oh! Oh! Oh!

Well well well, hello there Rudolph.

Unfortunately it's already resting peacefully in the bananaheaven.

Oh dear. I don't know how far the cubs are into the fox/vixen culture, but you could maybe try teaching them 'The fox went out on a chilly night'to keep them occupied (put this into Google and you can find all the verses, for what they're worth.

Otherwise Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox is a sure-fire winner with kids. I'm naturally assuming that their English is a perfect as yours.

The fox went out on a chilly night

This is very bizarre! I hope all you Foxes get to go outside soon...

taigathefox said...

This has been quite a frustrating day. The cubs have still a very high fever, so we couldn't get out :(

Thanks IP, I haven't heard the first one ever before. Roald Dahl is very well read here :)
Oh, the kids can't any English yet, and my English is very far from perfect...

Taiga, Taiger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night,
Can't you at least pay lip service
To carbon emission reduction and
Rainforest destruction?

[After Blake]

In what distant weeps or skies.
Burnt the tears of thine eyes?
On what [green] wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare sieze the fire?

Oh, very clever, O Taiga's heart wrapp'd in a woman's hide! (Henry VI Act 1 Scene 4 line 137.) I've just gone back to 'Tyger,tyger' because there are are bits I don't understand and the consensus of all the experts is that nobody else does either. But it's magnificent all the same.

Hope the cubs are recovering. How many are there? A later verse of 'The Fox went out on a chilly night' mentions 'eight, nine, ten'. If this is the case, you *have* been busy.

Ahh, there are quite large bits I don't understand. In fact I begin to think it is just the life I don't understand...

The cubs are slightly better and their amount is two [if I haven't failed in counting].

I hope the cubs get well so they can soon be released into the wild again...under adult supervision of course.
