Berhampore’s own little zoo


My favourite neighbours were a couple called Linda and Leslie  who lived behind me in a tiny house in Berhampore. They had a wild grey cat that we named Wolf Cat; two tiny dogs that breathed with their tongues out and couldn’t jump over the pot plants in front of their fence (and kinda snorted); and two budgies that lived in their laundry.

They used to leave us notes in our mailbox, even after they moved out and were really kind and fascinating.
