Wrong title – 5-26-22

My post yesterday had the two stories reversed – the shocking rat story should have been a postscript to the kitten rescue! How could I have reversed them? The rats are on my mind 24/7 and I just hate that they’re in my barn – I always loved going to the barn and now I’m almost afraid to step in the door. Ugh.

Short post – just wanted to thank everyone for sending thanks to Mark and Cyndy! Compared to the news it’s a pleasure to read about these lucky kittens, isn’t it?

Just Shocking!!! 5-25-22

I stepped out of the barn tonight after closing it up for the night and there was Rat #50 dead on the ground! Fifty!!!!! Hazel got this rat sometime today and I honestly do not k ow when exactly.

The last couple days have been a blur and numbers 48 and 49 happened then. You cannot imagine how shocked I am – to have discovered 50 dead rats after living here for over 43 years. Our friend Jo from Wyoming sent me a homemade rat remedy which I mixed up today and hope it works.

Remember this tiny special needs kitten?

She was born with twisted back legs and I posted her picture here on the blog to see if I could help find her a home. A reader contacted me almost immediately when I said I would consider paying to have her euthanized. The reader named Cyndy F. said she’d pick up the deformed kitten and her sibling, an orange tabby boy, on Monday.

Now for the shocking detail – MARK AND CYNDY LIVE IN CALIFORNIA!!

Yes, they drove 26 hours to pick up these lucky kittens. They are now on their way home to California with the two luckiest kittens in the entire world. Please help me extend my thanks and gratitude to Mark and Cyndy!

I am thrilled to write this rescue story – it’s what I do best! And while I’m writing I’m also watching the American Rescue Dog Show.

More farm news tomorrow!

Oh Happy Day! 5-23-22

The Xerox part came today and here is my mailbox.

If you’re waiting for a pattern order, it’s on its way – whew!

I am surprised and thrilled that Rina wrote today from South Africa – I wonder how she knows about the blog.

Glad you liked the quilt show yesterday – I, too, thought it was exceptional! Send me your pictures! They’re the best part of the blog – oh, unless it’s the rat report! Haha!!!
