Hello, September! After going through August's photos of our feeding station, I found we didn't actually take very many photos that month. I ended up with only a week's worth of critter of the day pictures worth posting, mostly of cats.

The kittens discovered the bird bath - with a little help from Beep Beep.

I'd love to empty that barn so we can actually use it. … Continue reading Clean up: it’s for the birds, and planning ahead
