Just look at this criminal beast! I was just heading out to do my morning rounds, when I discovered crime had happened, and the criminal was watching me. Nicco, this time! I let my daughters know, and when one of them came down to the old basement, she found FOUR cats had gotten through! Once … Continue reading Criminal!
So... we've had problems with the more recent additions to our cat colony indoors. They've decided our plants are for them to play with and dig in. One of the pots we've been trying to protect is has the parent jade trees that we brought with us when we moved. During the drive out, it … Continue reading Protecting the jade tree, and critter capers
One of the down sides of having so many cats in the house is how much they "love" our houseplants! We've had to get increasingly creative to protect them. The smaller ones ended up getting hung up. Thankfully, my daughter's orchid kokedama are very light, as they ended up being hung from a curtain rod … Continue reading Desperate Measures
It started to snow lightly last night, and is still snowing now! Nutmeg, Creamsicle Jr. and their mom, Butterscotch From what I can see on the weather radar, the heavier snow passed just south of us, and we will continue to have snow for at least a few more hours. Which makes me extra happy … Continue reading A bit of snow, and a bit of a disaster (averted)
Last night, while checking on the onion seedlings, I decided it was time to lower the shallot and bulb union seedlings in the big tank. The seedling tips were looking a little dried out, likely because they were getting too close to the warmth of the light fixture. Doing that required removing the trays and … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: leveling down, and unrelated destruction
I'm about ready to start throwing cats outside! 😦 This is what I discovered, this morning. The long piece of insulation across the top is what had been blocking the opening on the back of the tank lid. You can even see the claw marks in it! Some nasty little beast managed to pull one … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: damage control
Aren't they adorable? Don't they look so sweet and innocent, snuggled together? Don't believe them. They lie! They are devious, destructive beasts! 😀 Okay, okay. I don't think Cabbages and her "grandma" are the guilty parties responsible for this. The tank's lid has an opening at the back for the filter, cords, etc. I'd blocked … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: not quite cat proof
We tried to be creative with the Christmas tree, with so many kittens in the house. The older cats are not as much of a concern, but the little ones are another story! Well, after several days of cat caused disasters, today I came into the dining room to find they'd trashed the tree. For … Continue reading Christmas tree do-over
Ah, the "joy" of cats in the house. When I picked up my mother to take her to the doctor yesterday, she came out with a big bucket riding on her walker, full of Christmas decorations. She didn't want them anymore, and there's lots of room on the farm, so... *sigh* We aren't using even … Continue reading Morning disaster
Look what I found on the dining table this morning... This was after I was awakened by a storage cube falling off the top of the wall shelf above my bed, landing right next to my head. 😦 I'm not too worried about the cubes; they're just filled with small blankets. I am more concerned … Continue reading Evidence of kitty crimes!
