Ziggy having a bad day

Sunday night Ziggy did not come home. Normally all cats come home for their dinner and then have to stay in over night. This prevents them from hunting all the native New Zealand birds and also keep themselves safe.

The next Monday morning there was still no sign of her. Eventually she came home later in the morning and was full of blood, was limping and had quite apparently dislocated bones. So glad she actually made it back home.

The family took her to our trusty vets, Vets North in Kumeu where she was patched back together in a few hours of surgery.

She stayed at the vet overnight and is now very happy back at home, purring and being very grateful. She will have to stay isolated and inside for a week now.

The vet believes a car may have hit her, she had a broken bone and dislocated bone with heavy bruising. Poor thing has hopefully learnt not to play with traffic.

Welcome back home Ziggy Stardust.

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.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.
