What About Them?

20 Aug

I shared yesterday that I really stress about going back to work because of my goats.

Well, what about the dog and cats?

Sky and Rocky

Sky has spent most of his summer lounging in the house.

Of course, when I left  him out overnight one night (He wanted to. It was nice.), he decided to play by throwing my little strawberry pots all over the patio and deck.

I went ahead and planted them in the tower, even though their roots were really just getting started.

The next morning, while I was milking goats, Rocky decided to play in the dirt.

He even pulled one plant out and left it laying on the carpet.  I had to repot them and move it to the front porch for now. I also had to add a couple more because Sky played outside in the strawberries again.

I’m kind of afraid to see what trouble they are going to cause when I go back to work.  Snickers has been lounging on the deck most of the summer, but I won’t be able to let him out now.  I don’t want him to end up on the roof again.

He is also really losing ground with his weight.  I’ve been feeding him numerous times every day.  Now he’s decided that he can’t eat the canned cat food again.  I’m back to cooking an egg for him every morning and evening.  Thank heavens the chickens and goats keep him in food!

I don’t know about the animals, but I already have separation anxiety.
