Other Critters

22 May

It’s not just my animals here on the farm.  I get to see lots of birds.

There’s quite a few squirrels out in pasture.

Occasionally we have some other critters show up.  Or Bob might bring them up.

Bob Cat

Yep.  He caught a baby bunny.  Luckily, he’s not a starving cat because he didn’t notice when I took his bunny from him.  He was just waiting and resting until it tried to escape and he could play with it some more.

I really don’t see very many bunnies here with the cats and dog ready to chase them.

I took it to the Back Forty and let it go.

Should have changed camera setting first, but I was more worried about Bob than pictures.

This morning, I think I rescued the same baby bunny from Bob again.  I did warn it that it might not be lucky enough for me to be around to save it a third time.

Hopefully, it has learned its lesson.  Then this happened.

When the vet was here helping me push pills down the goats, kittens wandered out from under the workbench.  Seriously?  I only have fixed cats.  In the twenty springs I’ve spent on the farm, this is the first time I’ve had kittens born here.

Margarita tried butting one into the ground.  Seriously?

They were thin and horribly dehydrated.

They are back to healthy and have already left the farm.

Friday’s Hunt v1.23

3 Jun

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  I’m excited for week twenty-three!  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with X, Week’s Favorite, and wet (or water).  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with W:  In my mind, these two corn plants look like they make the letter W.

I also visited my windmill beneath the warm summer sunshine and a sky filled with wispy white clouds.

Week’s Favorite:  Bet you thought it would be Harley’s kids, but no.  I played with my nephew and his wife’s kittens.  I had a lot of fun with them, and I think I’ll go back for some more cuteness!

Rough:  Well, this week has been crazy busy, so for rough you get the rough wood of an old fence post.  Yes, Sam is demonstrating to you that the better food is always on the other side of the fence.

Now it’s your turn!
