I have noticed that Beep Beep is more willing - or able! - to leave the babies while they sleep. This is encouraging, as it means she is getting food and water, and using the litter, more often. She's also getting a chance to wander around, say hello, and jump up to one of the … Continue reading All the kitties!
Our windy day continues! While we have a few millimeters of rain predicted for this evening, as I type this, I am hearing thunder rolling, and just saw a flash of lightning out my window! Here's hoping we don't loose power while I'm working on this post! 😀 I have continued working on the section … Continue reading More Lilac Wood, in progress
My daughter and I went into the shed to get the door I was thinking of using to replace the broken door on the sun room. The replacement door is in pretty good shape, and even has complete hinges attached, so we took the old door off, hinges and all. We did not, however, replace … Continue reading Nooooot quite!
First, an update on the kitties! Beep Beep came half out of her baby nest to have a bit of food while I was there, with the babies peacefully snoozing in a pile. I was even able to get a picture, despite her best efforts to use her butt to block my attempts. 😀 She … Continue reading Update, up and broken things
I just can't help it. I have to share! Just look at that pile of furry, squirmy wormies! Beep Beep came out for some pets while my daughter and I checked on her and her babies. While my daughter kept mama distracted, I was able to sneak a quick shot of the babies. 🙂 We … Continue reading Furry worms
A storm last year damaged a lot of trees and bushes around the yard, including breaking off a large piece of a double lilac my mother planted in the little garden by the old kitchen. Noticing the beautiful pattern in the wood, I set the pieces aside for later. Today was "later." 😀 I brought … Continue reading Lilac wood
I am happy to say that Butterscotch's remaining kitten is doing very well with her adoptive mom. I wasn't able to get a photo today (I didn't want to bug Beep Beep too much), so this is one I got last night. Butterscotch's baby is the second from the left, happily nursing. On the one … Continue reading Good news so far!
So... we seem to have a problem. Butterscotch's third orange kitten died today. I checked on them this morning. Beep Beep's kittens were sleeping in a pile, and she had even come to the stairs to greet me when I came down, before dashing back into her nest. Butterscotch was in her nest, sitting like … Continue reading Another one gone. 😦
My goals for the day changed significantly, with our sad dealings with kittens, but I did manage to accomplish one main thing on my to-do list. I got the second round of seeds started, with the hopeful expectation of transplanting 3 weeks from now. Weather willing. I was surprised by how many gourd seeds there … Continue reading Starting more seeds
My daughters and I went into the basement maternity ward to set up a new "nest" for Butterscotch and her babies, and block off the old radio so she wouldn't go in there again. As we took her babies out, however, we found another of her orange babies was struggling. We spend the next while … Continue reading More sad news
