As the Farm Grows

21 08 2008

Mis and Robert’s long lost (long abandoned ship) cats have returned. First, Harry the tomcat showed back up, skinny as a rail and as high strung as they come. He’s put weight on and loves to be scratched between his ears. He also loves hanging out with the goats.

Today, Hannah the calico showed back up. Sadly, she’s not as friendly as she used to be. She’s very skittish, but friendlier than Harry was. She’s also very skinny. We knew she was staying at the neighbor’s house, but we thought she was being taken care of. 😦 She hasn’t been.

Mis has said some very… negative things about the two cats in the past, so I’ve already decided to take them with us when we move. I knew we’d be taking Harry, but I thought Hannah had a good home. Since I now know otherwise, she’s coming, too.

My future farm now has four pygmy goats, two inside cats, and two outdoor cats (one of which will definitely be a barn cat).

Harry is eating out of the dish while Hannah looks around. Excuse the mess on the porch… It’s still a mess due to the repairs in the kitchen. It’s also where I keep my goats’ straw and trashcan full of feed.

Edit: Speaking of goats, I also need to buy another doghouse. It’s almost time for Zoe to go into season (in heat), and since pygmy goats can breed as early as 7-8 weeks and my babies are 9-almost-10 weeks, I have to separate them. :-/ That’s not going to go over very well with the herd.
