Butterscotch's babies were extremely active in the cool of the morning. 🙂 It took them stopping for a nursing break before I could get pictures! I didn't want to disturb them, so I used the zoom on my phone's camera, which takes the worse pictures. 😦 I still ended up disturbing them. Ah well. Earlier, … Continue reading Morning kittens
Well, we've passed our forecasted high of the day and have reached 30C/86F, with the humidex putting us at 35C/95F, this afternoon. We did, however, get RAIN this morning! I was awakened by the sound of thunder, so I quickly went outside to make sure the cats and birds had food before the rain hit. … Continue reading Little friends, and garlic mystery solved?
Last night, as I was topping up the food dishes near where kittens are, I found Butterscotch and her babies playing around the concrete steps at the side of the house. So I sat on the stairs and scattered some kibble at the bottom to see if I could convince them to come closer. This … Continue reading I touched kittens!
I just have to start with the exciting part. We actually got rain today! Okay, so it was maybe only for about 20 minutes, but it was a nice, gentle, steady rain, and enough that after several hours, the ground is still damp. Not only that, but we've got a 90% chance of more rain … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: some growth, some critter damage, and WE GOT RAIN!!!!
Today, we did indeed break the 30C/86F mark, but by the "cool" of the evening (you know you're acclimatizing to the heat when 27C/81F starts to feel cool!), the kittens were out to play! I haven't had much luck getting Butterscotch's babies to come close while I'm sitting in the camp chair, but they've come … Continue reading Evening Kittens!
I got to see all sorts of adorable things this morning. Starting with these guys! They were very rambunctious this morning. 🙂 The girls have informed me that the calico that looks like Cabbages has been named Broccoli. The tabby twins have also been named, but I forget them right now. The fourth kitten, sharing … Continue reading Cute fuzzy things in the morning
Today, with repeated warnings for thunderstorms, and even the sound of thunder in the distance, we got only a smattering of rain this afternoon. Barely enough to get the ground a bit wet. 😦 At least we're a couple of degrees cooler than forecast. With the conditions we've had this year, our Rural Municipality officially … Continue reading Our 2021 garden; new seedlings – plus critters
Butterscotch's kittens were very playful last night. There are four kittens, plus Mom, in this photo. Can you see kitten number four? The Re-Farmer
I was able to get a whole bunch of kitten pictures this evening. Only three of Butterscotch's 4 kittens were visible while I was nearby. Butterscotch's expression is just too funny. 😀 I've been slowly trying to lure the kittens closer, so I can finally touch them, but it's a little more difficult while sitting … Continue reading Bring on the kittens!
When things started cooling down, I headed outside and checked on the old kitchen garden. I started to pull out some weeds I missed this morning, when I heard a noise. I had startled Junk Pile cat, who was lying on the beets by the retaining wall. She wasn't alone! What a cutie!! I saw … Continue reading New fur babies!
