Kitty Cat and the Fish

Smokey, the little homeless, hungry, thrown away kitty who followed the guineas home one day about a year ago.


This was last October. It took some time to convince him that we loved him and he could live here. He hid under Poppy's shop for a week or more.



Trying to catch the leaves last fall.


And now practically runs things around here. 


Stretched out on my side of the bed.

Poppy was deer hunting late so I carried Smokey, Eli, and Weetie for their usual last walk of the day. While we were out, we brought BunBun in, checked on all the babies, gave the goats some hay, and let the rooster in the goat lot for the night. 



I brought along a slice of bread and we stopped at the pond to watch the fish.


The catfish are actually friendly. 



Okay, Poppy needs the computer so I will finish up here. :)

Oh, and for my birthday today...the weather turned much cooler. Today was simply beautiful . I mowed the back yard. Most enjoyable day I've had in a while! Poppy gave me a sweet card with money hidden inside. Andee and Lynn both called to say Happy Birthday. Shelby and I are meeting in Wake Forest tomorrow to go to some thrift stores, and eat lunch together and I am so looking forward to that. I mean, that money is burning a hole in my pocket.

Hope to be back soon. Thank you for visiting. 

Love,
Henny

  9. Happy Birthday! I hope your shopping today goes well and you find lots of "pretties" to consider. But remember what they always tell the kids, "Don't spend it all in one place".

    1. Thank you! I know you love your dog. I just don't know what we would do without a dog to love. We lost our little Pooh about three years ago. He was a black poodle, 15 years old.
