I picked up four 5 week old kittens this afternoon from Patriots For Pets in Clear Lake to foster. I don’t know the details of why they weren’t still with their mom – I didn’t ask.
The blackest one doesn’t have a tail and one of the white ones has extra toes like Ernie. I don’t think they’ve ever been out of a cage so they could run because that’s what they did the minute I put them in the kennel.
Bought them a bag of tiny toys which they love. I’m figuring out their diet as I go and I have no idea if they’ll use the litter box at this young age. It’s all trial and error – haha!
We had an exciting morning in the barn – Hazel killed a rat! There’s been a hole Hazel has been sniffing and today the rat appeared – I don’t even know how it all took place because I was feeding the chicks when she started racing around and sure enough, Hazel came out the winner!
I praised her over and over – I admired her kill – and then found a great treat as a reward. Oh, so exciting!
She was in her glory!
On a much calmer note, look at Connie’s gorgeous cross stitch she just finished – such tiny, intricate work!
I started looking at the Christmas patterns in our online store, trying to decide what I should make next. Here are a couple possibilities – smaller projects that I could actually get done.
I’m going to think on this – I have others to choose from as well.
It’s a chilly blustery night in North Iowa with snow threatening and a winter weather advisory being issued. Winter has arrived.
