One of my very first posts published on this blog was about my trip to the Grecian party-resort of Kavos in Corfu. (If you haven’t read it, check it out here).
In the aforementioned post, I recommended heading off the beaten track in order to see the best of the island.
And that is exactly what Ryan and I did.
Plodding through a beautiful olive grove, minding our own business, we heard a loud waling sound unlike anything I’ve heard before.
We scanned the trees for warbling birds and then the ground for strange Greek creatures but saw nothing.
We rambled on.
Then the sound got louder and louder until we couldn’t ignore it any longer.
Something was in pain.
Still unable to see the animal/creature/mutant-bird, we took a closer look at the trees themselves.
And low and behold, we found this little mite staring back at us!
He had somehow become trapped inside the tree, wedged between two pieces of bark. After trying to pull him out, and failing (gaining a couple of nasty scratches in the process), we ended up having to hack away at the bark until he was eventually prised free.
Shaken and dazed, our new BFF (now named Tomas), shook himself off and purred in appreciation.
I was so sad to leave him but thankfully we found a lovely English family who took him under their wing and fed him their last can of tuna.
Tomas, wherever you are, you are furry fur-tunate to have clawed your way out of this one! Paw-don me for the puns… I couldn’t resist!
Have you got a special story behind your favourite picture? Let me know, I’d love to hear it!
