Integration

10 Jul

I am planning on keeping the kitten that showed up last weekend as long as I can get it healthy and integrated into the rest of the house animals.  I shall call him Tiger.  I had my Leo (the lion) and I have my Bob Cat, so I think this one shall be my Tiger.

When a kitten hasn’t had food for heaven only knows how many days and you suddenly give it food, it does horrible things to its digestive system.  The vet wormed him and gave us another med to help his tummy. She also though he is around nine weeks old.

Cat litter added to the bathroom because there’s no way it can make it to the basement.

If this kitten had wandered into my yard and the dog found it first, he would have killed it.  That’s what he does.  If it doesn’t belong here, he’s going to kill it.  It’s why I have to be so careful with the new kids.  He would love to chase and kill them because they don’t belong (ie they are new to the farm). However, since I caught the kitten first and brought it in the house and told him it belonged here, he is the sweetest he can be with it.

There have been a couple of awkward moments when the kitten tried nursing him, but overall they are good.

Rocky and Bob are the bigger hurdles.  Bob is outside most of the time, so he has been pretty good about ignoring it right now.  We’ll see how his attitude changes this fall.

He may have decided to show his displeasure with the new arrival by attacking an innocent zucchini.

He always loved snuggling with Leo and I know he misses him, so I think he’ll be happy once we get through this time of adjusting.

Rocky

I hope.  Because this little one is really sweet and deserves to be a cushions and cream cat.  Oh, and here’s a bonus video of Sky and Tiger.

Haley in the greenhouse. She continues to improve.  Hopefully, I can move her up north soon.

I was a bit surprised when Bob and Rocky were willing to share my bed.  Bob does not do well with other cats.

My silly Maybeline.

Aurora is demanding to be given extra feed.  I try.  Any time I can get it to her without the other llamas or goats attacking us, she gets it.  She really isn’t as thin as she looks.  It’s her skin colors and the shadows and textures from being sheared that makes her look that thin.  She does need to pick up a little weight, but she isn’t that bad for this time of year.

Yes, I keep her feed in the milk room.

I am ready for fresh goat milk, but I just can’t seem to get myself motivated to milk in the morning before teaching early morning classes (I have to be to work at 7:30 am).  But, I’ll be done teaching next week.

I’m not so sure Perdita will like this.

I also need to milk Ava, Cutie, and Joy, but I’m pretty sure I need to work into milking that many goats. My hands need to get their strength built back up.

So it might be not quite such a bad thing that those nasty ganders were so mean.  Right now, with the little honkers, they are pretty safe.  As soon as the geese got past her, Zinnia was quick to get away from them.  Those little ones are pretty safe because they have such mean parents.

Dolly might have to be restricted in the milk room.  She’s almost getting fat.

I’m not sure that’s a bad thing at her age.

End of the Week Updates

You might have guessed from my earlier posts, that Caroline is doing better with her copper issues, so I let her out of the north paddock.

I finally let Bob outside because he was driving us all crazy being shut in the house.  Really.  He’s still feeling pretty good; although, I think it hurt his toe more than he anticipated.  He came back to the house and took a long nap after the first time I let him out again.  I just hope he doesn’t make it a summer habit to fight.

The little floofs are getting too big to call floofs.  They’re just little honkers now.

Yes, there’s water in the scoop shovel. They’re too little for the pool.

They are still cute though.

Mr. Peacock is still dancing for the hens, and they are still unimpressed.

Here’s more of the goats out in pasture.

Have a great weekend!
