After having to get creative to prepare our first tray of seed starts, we left the tray overnight to give the peat in the K-cups more time to absorb the water. I didn't check it until late morning, and the peat was still dry in the middle! The water was basically staying on top. It … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: First seeds started! Also, I couldn’t resist. Again.
I was very happy to see our first order from Rare Seeds (Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds) come in. With so many delays in deliveries, I was more hoping than expecting. Also, I'm a suck. More on that later. 😀 Here is what came in: (click on the images to see them better) We've got 2 … Continue reading First seeds in! Plus an early Christmas present.
I had a very enthusiastic crowd when I gave the outside cats warm water and kibble. 🙂 The one potential down side of the kibble house I'm building is that there will not be as much room for the cats themselves to spread out. The very shy one in the back, for example, is not … Continue reading I am such a suck
This morning's tending to the kitties was truly an adventure! It started when I opened the door and found Leyendecker and Saffron lying on the top step. Just chillin'! They didn't even try to run upstairs right away. Unfortunately, in my attempts to step over them, Beep Beep and the other kittens had time to … Continue reading Kitten Chaos
It was my turn to do the evening cat routine last night. This includes going into the sun room to top up the food and water for the outside cats, as well as cleaning out the two litter pans we have out there. As usual, once they heard me in there, cats started streaming in. … Continue reading New Addition?
I left to brush my teeth before going to bed. I came back to find my bed was taken.
This afternoon, I found myself falling asleep at my desk and realized I needed to nap if I was going to do any driving later on. Upon reaching my bed, however, I found my intentions blocked. Well... the cats were getting a nap out of it. 😀 The Re-Farmer
So, the outside cats have been using the cat cave put together to help conserve their body heat. Overall, they seemed to adapt to it rather quickly. Of course, they also explored it quite a bit, and every now and then, we'd look out the bathroom window and see a cat sitting on top of … Continue reading Let’s try that again
Played around with a set up for the outside cats, in the sun room. This is what I've come up with. I had another crocheted blanket that we used as a car blanket hanging around. I decided to try draping it from the back of the swing bench to the back of the transfer bench. … Continue reading Checking out the new digs
We are such sucks. Especially when it comes to the cats! All of them. The outside cats have been taking advantage of having access to the sun room a lot. They clearly prefer it to any of the other shelters they have access to around the house and outbuildings, and even the dad cats are … Continue reading Two levels
