Before you make your guess, here are the Patio Members (in order of arrival): Mr G, Rosie, Daffodil, Ginger, Timmy, Vincent, Mr Zurik, Heidi.
Now, make your guess....
Could it be...Mr Zurik?
Daffodil or Timmy?
Heidi (who demands to eat in the kitchen)?
Maybe it's Daffodil? After all, she is the oldest by age.
Or Ginger? Or maybe Vincent?
Or the oldest "resident", Mr G??
Have you made your guess?
Yes, Timmy is the new alpha at the patio now.
We first detected his "alpha-ness" when he started attacking Tabs. Tabs was out for a romp and wanted to eat serai (lemongrass) at the patio garden. Timmy attacked her. Poor Tabs ran all the way back into the house. This happened for a few days.
This morning, Timmy cornered Heidi and snarled at her.
But Heidi snarled back. Our Dame is no pushover!
Or did Timmy mistake her for Tabs? A case of a wrong target?
You wonder if, in this picture, Timmy is waiting for leftovers or giving Mr Zurik a lecture, right?
Maybe Timmy is saying, "Now, that's enough....go away!"
And it's always Vincent who has to defend the patio when Mr Zurik comes daily.
There will always be a scene and a huge "announcement".
The general stays behind the enemy lines and merely dishes out the orders.
My men will fight my battles for me...
Yes, folks, we are looking at the rise of Timmy.
I mean, Timothy.
General Timothy Dalton...Sir!!
