Meet Sreynot. She's two years old, tho' we have her decked out in nappies for 3-7kg babies. This little lady had her hair lip sorted the first time she was with us. Now, her cleft pallet has been operated on and she is on a food catch-up, bigtime. Sue makes and meulis and she just sucks in more than you could believe.
Last Friday Sue had Sreynot sitting on the table in the kitchen just like in this picture, spooning the mush into her. Suddenly the little lady became all animated, making noises (she has not yet begun to speak), waving her arms around and then clapping her hands. Sue figured something was happening behind her so she turned around. Strolling into the kitchen from the outside door was Rat. All Cambodian Rats need the capital R - they are not little critters out here.
Rat saw he was busted and made for the back of the fridge. Sue made for her husband. That would be me. I remember the t-shirts; the ones that say 'No Fear'. So, they lie. Rat did exit and the drainage hole I suspect he scampered up and down is now nicely covered in wirenetting. Bright kid tho' - even if she was wanting to play with the monster.
