My little non-walker (almost, almost!) hasn't had much need for shoes in the 19 months of his life so far. Or much tolerance, but he's now wearing these cool soft shoes sent by his friends Nicholas, Teresa and Dan very willingly indeed! Treesie, they are well scratched up - a good sign!

Wondering why the cockatoo looks rather shocked, and the kangaroo vaguely pleased? The cockatoo used to have two feet and a whole wing, while Kanga and her joey have so far escaped the Jaws of Toddler.

Well done Mattie boy. Reconsidering letting you loose in Australia Zoo later this year.
