Dora The Explorer (discovered SHE is a HE)
Remember the kittens we found
here on the farm a few weeks ago?
If you didn't see that post you can see it...
Well momma cat decided to move them
probably to protect them from the dogs
as the kittens were moving around
and probably in danger of falling out
of the truck.
Plus the dogs discovered the kittens
hiding place but couldn't get to them.
Hubby told one of the fellows
at work about
the kittens and I took pictures.
He said he'd take the black one ...but
when we went out to check on them last
week they were gone!
The next day I heard one of our little dogs
barking and thank heavens I heard it
because momma cat had carried them
into the BURN PILE!
This is a huge pile of limbs and other wood
that we accumulate from cleaning up
around the farm.
I chased the dogs away and then sat on the ground
and talked to them. The two kittens were way
inside but there was enough light to just
Thank heaven's we had picked them up and
handled them and talked to them when
they were in the truck because
when they heard my voice
the came out!
The little black sweetie above will go to her
new home in a couple of weeks.
The little one below
Dora The Explorer
soon to be renamed...
will be staying with us here on the farm.
Unfortunately for their own protection
we have taken them away from
the mom who we haven't seen since
and brought them in the house.
Our little Shih Tzu Chelsea
would have been able to get to them
if we'd left them there
and I just didn't want to take that chance.
I'm happy to say they are doing
wonderful and are happy and well fed!
Isn't that the most adorable face above!
Time for a wrestle!
Time to explore.
And time to go inside for a nap.
I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
