Pat Regan - Patron Saint of Animals?
Who needs Saint Francis of Assisi when you have Pat Regan?
OK - so here I was talking on the blower with my pal Brenda when all of a sudden this bird is trying to frantically get at me through the window.
On placing the phone back on the receiver I went outside and the little fella jumped onto my hand without any hesitation..
I figure he was a bit knocked about by the wind and rain (lovely British summer) so I left him in a sheltered bush..
And yes - I have cropped around the photo as the original had a washing line going though my head.
Does this mean I can be selected by the Pope as the new Patron Saint of Animals - or at least birds? Must drop the lads at the Vatican a swift line about this...
Now if we can just keep the flaming greedy cats, that breed like rabbits in the vicinity, away from my new friend he may stand a chance of survival.
