New fluff arrivals – more rescues

We had our lovely cat Kahlua with us for about 12 years, maybe a bit less however after such a long time you lose count – it feels like forever though. You get the idea. After she passed away and we were grieving for some time, we felt the urge to fill the void. So after some looking for cats and kittens at various places, we settled for “Silver”, a few months old kitten. Her full name given to her is “Silver Shadow”.

However we then heard about an adult cat that was dropped off at our local vet Dr. Bob (now Vets North). The cat was a stray and had been there for a few month without anybody claiming or wanting her. We felt so sorry for the cat that we decided to have a look at her and – of course – subsequently adopt her. The two of them settled in quite well and get along well too – which was our biggest concern. So Stray was renamed into Cheetah.

And so the family is getting ready for more years of funny situations and enriching the internet of cats.

Time of the year again: Ducks, ducks, ducks

It’s that time of the year again where the cats and dogs in the neighbourhood start bringing in little chicks and ducklings.

While a few of last year’s rescue ducks have returned sporadically throughout the year, they now seem to be returning in larger numbers and bringing their boy friends along.

The animals, the rain and the fire

Who likes the weather when it’s raining and storming outside? No one – well, maybe the odd people that are happy that their grass is growing, like us humans inside. Oh, and the ducks! The ducks love it.

Time to head out before the bad weather

Time to head into the valley and do some paddock maintenance. Checking fences and gates, continued to dig a drainage trench, checked up on the alpacas and moos, mowed some swamp grass and sprayed some other areas of swap grass. Chopped some firewood, loaded up the trainer and brought it back up to the house to keep us warm over the next couple of days.

While Naughty was laying on his back with outstretched legs on the beanbag, I have taken the opportunity ta take a close-up picture of that fluff between his toes.

A break from the rainy weather

First day in a long time without rainy weather, so we went down into the valley for fixing things, moving things and play things.

A video a friend made in summer two years ago. The horse shelter was still under construction at that time. The flightover shows our alpacas in the lower paddock and gives an impression of our lovely hillside spot.
