"I hate you!"
Sigh... we're putting out traps for garage cat tonight. As soon as we catch her, she's going to the vet for shots and neutering (and we'll find out if she really is a girl!)
I think she's Emerson's mama. Do you see the resemblance?
Their fur is the exact same: light ginger tabby.
I had really been hoping garage cat would warm up to me so the trap wouldn't be necessary but alas, she still hides every time I go in there. We did have a little winking session at each other through the garage window the other day, so I guess I've made the teeniest, tiniest amount of progress, but I feel awful about having to trap her. The vet is going to keep her there until she has recuperated from whatever surgery she's having (spay? neuter?) then we'll bring her back her and let her loose. She's been hanging around here long enough now that I do think she considers our farm home. I'm hoping that maybe I can teach her to come to the garage or barn every night for supper and bedtime. I'll keep you posted. Every time I think about trapping the cat, I start crying... I know it'll be very stressful for her, and she's already stressed enough but we want to make sure she's healthy, vaccinated and fixed, then she can be our pet as much as she wants to!
Meanwhile, Charlotte is an absolutely brilliant mother to her three little chicks...
My geriatric hen and her children, none of which are biologically hers.
She has gone full broody and is doing such a great job! But because she trusts me so much and is so used to being handled, she doesn't flip out when I handle the babies. I am hoping to bring up three little mini-Charlottes (or Charles... Charless.. Charleses, as the case may be!)
Such a sweet little hen mama!
Other than that, I am struggling to keep up with my bees, who are going absolutely nuts this year and making more honey than ever. I am really lucky they are doing so well but I keep running out of equipment (honey supers) for them.
Hope you all had a good weekend!
