Another kitty update

Have I mentioned that Poppy is on vacation this week? Yeah, deer season again. Actually, you can only hunt with a black powder gun right now, around here anyway. So far he has brought home nothing but a bunch of ticks.

Oh friends, I have held the little kitten. I have picked him up and held him close to my heart. He purrs and snuggles so close to me. He is starved for attention. As long as I am sitting on the shop steps, near where he eats and sleeps, I can pick him up. But, if I'm walking toward the shop and he see me he runs. We've come a long ways though...



I really believe that the guineas brought this lost kitten here. His cries were so loud and so pitiful for two days. There is some sort of attachment between this kitten and the guineas. Last Friday when I found the kitten behind the old dog house, between the dirt path and the goat lot, the guineas had just come from that direction. Now, anytime the Guineas walk through the yard the kitten runs to meet them. It's so funny how the guineas all stop and stretch their necks out to greet him. So far, I haven't had the camera with me but I hope to get a picture of the kitten and the guineas. Animals are smart. Nothing surprises me anymore.

The guineas sunning...




Not much of a post today.  :) Thank you for visiting. 

Love,
Henny

Oops! One more. This big Heron was visiting with the ducks this morning...

    1. He surely did bond with them. Oh Jane, I love the name Dorian. Poppy has pick the name Smokey so I'm letting it go at that. I'm sure you will understand why. :)

  6. I knew it wouldn't take that kitten long to warm up to you. And he seems to have been adopted by the quineas too. that's a lucky cat!

  7. Glad to hear that the kitty is feeling more comfortable with you and actually letting you hold him. Keep up the cuddling (what an onerous job that is!) and soon you will be able to take him anywhere. However he managed to get to you it was sure a lucky break for him.

  8. Our neighbor has guineas and they're always in our driveway. I had found them to be pretty darn dumb. Yours?

    1. Oh guineas can be pretty dumb, especially with their babies. They cannot raise babies in the wild. They do a great job eating ticks and insects though.
