It is a beautiful day this morning. My birds are singing loud and cheery. The sun is shining, the rain and wind have ceased. AND I get to see two of the biggest yard puppies I have ever seen! Yesterday I am sitting here at my computer quietly playing some solitaire when I hear a thundering noise. I look out the window and lo and behold Precious is running toward the house from the back field! First thought thru my mind was where is Belle? Quickly I run into the bedroom throw on some pants and a coat and head out the door. First thing I do is hook the gate then go and hook the back gate. As I cross the back yard I see Belle and I am so relieved! I really did not want to go chasing that horse down on a cold wet day! So into the front field I go walking the fence line trying to see where they got out at. I can find no place. It is a mystery! Now Belle can jump but Precious???? She is so fat she is lucky to walk! Actually she has lost a lot of weight this winter. I put her on a diet. Belle used to be a jumping fool. She would jump anything. A bucket on the ground? JUMP. A stick? JUMP. Precious won't waste her energy jumping! She will walk around something or wait for you to move it!
That is why I have yard puppies.
I have got to get busy building a small chicken coop. I plan on getting some Golden Comet chicks. I want them to go to one certain place to lay and roost.
The black and white cat is pregnant again. She lost her last litter. They were born too early. She seems to be holding this one! I swear she looks like she is going to pop anytime now! I am missing a kitty, a small gray and white tomcat. He was real sweet. He may just be catting around. Putput does that sometimes. He is a small yellow cat. They are so small that I am sure that they are not fighting. They avoid other cats that are bigger than them(and that is most cats!)
Scampi is doing well. He has gained weight. His ribs don't show anymore but you can still feel them ( just like you are supposed to)
Big Daddy has lost some weight. He really needed to. He is still a big cat but now he is not obese! He had a place on his ear where he had gotten hurt in a fight. I kept doctoring it and finally he scratched it open so it would drain. I kept trying to get it to drain but I could only do so much. Pat said no way to taking him to vet. He is fine now. The ear looks much better. The skin is growing back.
The baby birds are starting to shed their feathers now. Soon they will have their adult coat of feathers.
That is it for now. Gonna get some work done.
