Sad news - we found Keith, my lovely plot cat, dead inside a water butt this week. We don't know how or why he climbed in it but once in he must have been unable to get out and he drowned.
I had been looking for him because I hadn't seen him for three days and it was a terrible shock to find him there. I have been making sure that all water butts have a top on, or are emptied and turned upside-down. Easy to be wise after the event, I know.
An old bread crate makes a good cover and will not come off accidentally.
