I Just Can’t

30 Mar

I’ve had so many good-byes lately, and I dread the couple that I know will still be coming this year.

Victoria is old and struggling

But even more than losing my old goats, I have a fear for Tux.


I can’t get him to get along with my dog.  And it would break my heart if I came home to find that Sky had killed him.

Sky in attack mode–looking at kids.  He has to learn the little ones are not short-tailed, funny-colored squirrels.

I thought about trying to bring him in the house where it would be easier (more frequent) to get them together.

But I have a tentative truce in the house with four cats.  That’s huge and I am afraid what Rocky would do if I brought an adult cat into the house.


I’m afraid I’m going to have to find something else for Tux.  I just can’t keep him shut in the soap room or garage forever.  He deserves so much better.

    Poor Tux, maybe a family member can take him. It is a shame Sky wants to attack the other critters. Take care, enjoy your day and happy weekend!

      Sky is not the attacker. I can’t blame him for defending himself when the cat wants to attack him

        I am so glad to hear Sky is not the attacker! Enjoy your weekend!

    Have you been able to make a decision about how to handle Tux? I hope so. He’s such a beautiful boy!
