Crazy cat lady... and dog lady... and goat lady... and...


I got this shirt a while back from the awesome RCTees. Now all I need is one of those pink, er, kitty hats to go with it (and cover the unruly hair!)

Last week, two new additions arrived at the farm!


Say hello to Salt and Pepper the pygmy goats.


Pepper.

They are a lovely pair of goats who needed a new home. Their owner treated them very well and wanted to find a good place for them. We are so happy they have landed here! They were born on Valentine's Day 2012 and are brothers. Pepper is the bolder of the two, but they are both sweet and friendly.


And they fit in like they've always lived here!

Meanwhile...



The cats have been keeping warm!


As have the dogs! I was reading my book this afternoon when Dodger snuggled up and fell asleep like this. :) 

And here is the beautiful Naomi...



And Gordon with Gigi, his little princess. Our friends bought Gigi a collar and tag that say "Daddy's Girl"... bahahaha so appropriate!


I always finding her sleeping on heat vents. I think she misses the Jamaican climate. She is about 5 months old now. I take her to puppy class every Saturday morning and she is doing great, except she has not mastered "sit" yet! Apparently it's not something Jamaican street dogs really need to know. But we're working on it. She's a little sweetheart, this one. She was meant to be here and Chloe adores her.

 Speaking of Chloe...


Stealer of hearts, destroyer of homes! Good thing she's cute. We're lucky if we make it through a day without her chewing something up, and that's with me crating her when I leave her. She is incredibly fast at stealing things off counters, out of pockets, you name it! I'm hoping she'll grow out of this. She does have 10,000 toys and bones, but apparently that's just not enough for her!

And last week, Gordon celebrated his birthday. He took the day off work and I pampered him. We also went for a short ride...


...there is a lot of ice and crusty snow on the ground so we just went across the field at a walk and back. We are supposed to get a snowstorm Tuesday that should fix up the lousy footing here. I have been walking like a penguin for a week now because of all the ice around the farm. I have only fallen flat on my face once, but there have been many other close calls. I really want a good snow dump so we can ride our horses without worrying.

Hope you all had a good weekend!

  2. Goats can be a nuisance and get into trouble but they are interesting characters.

  5. My very first dog 'Hamlet' came to us because of his eating things. He lived in London and was left alone all day, eating everything he could find; especially shoes. When they'd had enough he was given to me, and he never ate any shoes ever again.

  6. I've never in my life! You and Gordon have the biggest kindest hearts! Giving all those animals a loving home and such special care. That basket of cats is the cutest thing I've ever seen...but, then I think that about all of your pictures.

  8. And we think having 10 cats in the house is a big deal! LOL!! I would do the same thing, Natalie, and love it as much as you. Happy Birthday to Gordon! You two look so happy and enjoy your life so much. I am envious :) Love your shirt in the first pic, too. Those cats all snuggled up in the dog bed is too much! I only have a few who want to cuddle with maybe one other, the rest of the time is like having 10 3-year-old children, picking and arguing. What a hoot!

  10. The two of you must have the biggest hearts of all...I am always amazed at the number and variety of animals who find their home with you. Lucky cats, dogs, goats, pigs, horses, ponies...what have I missed?

    Good luck with Chloe and her need to chew. Happy belated birthday to Gordon too!

  13. The pet collar of your pal is something that they are always going to wear, so you want to be sure that it not only stands out but fits just right. pitbulls and parolees
