I was cleaning out the milk house the other day, and found we had a colony of mice living in there. Hmmmm. Alan and I had discussed getting another barn cat after Phoebe died, but he didn't want another. He'd been setting traps for rats all winter. When I discovered the mice, I called: MouseBusters!!! A friend had been trying to give us two kittens for a couple of months, so I said, bring them on. She arrived yesterday with a boy and a girl, both neutered.
This is Gracie
I set the kids out in the barn with food and water, and they commenced to have a grand time. They spent the night out there okay, but today they decided to wander. They followed me everywhere.
I've been having alot of trouble sleeping and took two pills last night. I slept 5 hours and work up feeling drunk and sleepy, and have felt that way all day. I spent most of the day inside napping and knitting. It's been quite cold, and the wind is strong from the north, so I got worried about George and Gracie. I bundled up in my warm clothes and went looking for them.
Sure enough, they were hunkered down in the old shop and very scared. So, I gave in and brought them in the house for the night. I have forgotten what it is like to have kittens in the house. They are like rolling thunder, flying around and getting into everything. What a delight. Fred and Leroy are not at all happy. Guess they will spend the night pouting on the back porch.
I bought this braid of peppers at the Pike Place Market when we were there over the holidays. I think it looks just grand hanging there in the window.
Ooops, I am hearing the strangest sounds. I'd better go check on the two hellions.
