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.

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.

Buster and Aurora and Lily

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.

It is really nice when everyone gets along.

Usually it’s when they are sleeping.
