Other Critters

22 May

It’s not just my animals here on the farm.  I get to see lots of birds.

Baltimore oriole

There’s quite a few squirrels out in pasture.

Occasionally we have some other critters show up.  Or Bob might bring them up.

Bob Cat

Yep.  He caught a baby bunny.  Luckily, he’s not a starving cat because he didn’t notice when I took his bunny from him.  He was just waiting and resting until it tried to escape and he could play with it some more.

I really don’t see very many bunnies here with the cats and dog ready to chase them.

I took it to the Back Forty and let it go.

Should have changed camera setting first, but I was more worried about Bob than pictures.

This morning, I think I rescued the same baby bunny from Bob again.  I did warn it that it might not be lucky enough for me to be around to save it a third time.

Hopefully, it has learned its lesson.  Then this happened.

When the vet was here helping me push pills down the goats, kittens wandered out from under the workbench.  Seriously?  I only have fixed cats.  In the twenty springs I’ve spent on the farm, this is the first time I’ve had kittens born here.

Margarita tried butting one into the ground.  Seriously?

They were thin and horribly dehydrated.

They are back to healthy and have already left the farm.

    That’s one very cute and very lucky bunny! The kittens really a puzzle. The one with the orange stripe on her face was really a cutie.

      A bad winter drives all the animals to buildings. They are adorable!

    All of them left? I admire your willpower. They are so cute. I am sure I would have convinced myself that one more barn cat was ok! LOL!

      My Bob Cat is beyond accepting any more cats. Noelle really put him over the top. Poor boy. That and I can’t imagine going back to teaching Sky not to play with a little kitten.
