Clump lives in the paddock at the top of the hill directly in front of the house. He can see his girls in the field in front of him easily there and so doesn't panic about being on his own. He also has freedom to roam along the short runway that is at the front of the garden. Consequently being an inquisitive alpaca he is frequently to be found standing at the garden gate watching us as we sit on the patio some 10 or twelve feet away.
On Monday as we sat out having a barbecue supper, Clump was visited by young Sebastian one of the kittens. There was a certain amount of staring from both sides and a nose touch which I missed. However it was lovely to see cat/alpaca interaction which those of us with cats and alpacas will be familiar with.
