Leo Ignatius Bittendorf

21 Mar

My lover Leo.  He was diagnosed with diabetes, and at at least 17 years old with decreasing mobility, I decided it would be more kind not to treat him and prolong things.


I could have done the shots twice a day, but he would have hated to be shut upstairs by himself because of the diet requirements.

I brought him home from the vet and I make sure to snuggle with him every evening.




Flowers and a Kitten

7 Mar

In the big switch of my bedroom and the library, I have a wedding bouquet that’s been hanging in the library drying for three-and-a-half years.

I think they might be dry by now.

I’m a bit concerned about what will happen to them if they stay where they are.

Do you see this naughty Noelle?


Can you see the ornery in her eyes?

Can you guess what she’s looking at?

Those flowers are in danger.

I might have to hang them from the middle of a room upstairs to keep them safe.


3 Mar

My posts all this past week were prepared last Sunday and scheduled because of parent-teacher conferences this week.  I worked late three days and by the time I finished chores, I was ready for bed, so I can give you a couple of updates.  Our good weather is holding, and Aurora is still doing well and enjoying some sunshine.  If she continues to gain weight, it won’t be much longer before I can let her out.  Buster noticed Aurora last night, and he was positively bucking and dancing his way up the hill to see her.  I feel bad that they have been separated this winter, but it won’t be much longer.

Aurora’s abscess is healing.  I’m considering tempting my fate and seeing if I can get the halter off and clean it and her jaw and get the halter back on.

Hilda’s abscess popped which was extremely disgusting, but she is doing well.  It won’t be long until she has kids again.  I can’t believe we’re this close to spring break kids.


These two really both like the pillow.  Good thing it’s so big!  As you can see, I still have all kinds of furniture just randomly sitting around the house.

The good weather also has the goats going out to pasture.  That’s a good thing because my hay supply is dwindling.

Although today they didn’t go out for very long and they still expect room service.
