Goose at rest – such a cute look with beak tucked under the wing. Such a crappy photo – sorry!
And then there is the Tale of the Egg-Sucker.
Austin found these eggs sucked dry. Big question – whodunnit? He never did catch the culprits in the act, but he is pretty sure it was Myna Birds that did it.
And finally — short post this week — tragedy visited the farm.
Buttercup Kitty had terrible diarrhea. The boys found her and gave her water. She seemed to be getting better, then disappeared.
A few hours later Shadow Kitty ended up in the jaws of Po Dog – and escaped after Akka whacked Po. Both of them ran off in different directions.
Later that evening Shadow returned, and seemed content, drinking his mama’s milk.
In the morning, however, Shadow’s corpse was found in the pantry.
Very, very sad – especially for Kiki. It’s the first animal death he has been really present for.
Buttercup has recovered, thank goodness.
But we have to reflect on our very poor record of keeping young cats alive here at the farm in recent years. Po and Winky Dogs have been cat terrors. If we are blessed with another litter of kittens, we HAVE to do better.
Happy week, everybody. I promise to have better news next week.
