Foster Kittens for June 2016

All nine of these kittens are from the same litter. Their mama cat was run over in Winona, MO and I was contacted to foster them for our local no-kill animal shelter. They will be ready for new homes in 2 more weeks. You can contact me if you are interested in a kitten. They are litter box trained, wormed, eating dry kitten chow and will have their first set of shots shortly.

What you don't see in these photos are the 3 litter pans, the kitten misses, the food and water messes. Fostering kittens is a lot of clean up and observation of what goes in and what comes out of the kittens. Then you have to worm and get them vetted. Sometimes they die with the best care. But these are doing very well. 

You never know the true story behind what happened to them before they came into your care. Some stories are just made up by people wanting to unload unwanted kittens. It does not matter as they become my wards until they are adopted.

This one is a chocolate long hair with green eyes. I call him the biting cupcake and he likes to chew. He looks like an ewok. He will be gorgeous when he grows up.

Big Black Beetle

I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.

Hoofing It

The other day a friend came by to give a hoof trimming lesson to my neighbor. She raises champion goats and offered to show us how to trim goat hooves. The auction goats had neglected feet and needed serious trimming. They must have been confined for a long time to get at this level of neglect. So after a goat holder was made the trimming lesson began.
The auction goats poor feet. They caused her to walk poorly and not be able to forage since walking hurts.
The hoof wall has folded under the hoof. Careful trimming with very sharp trimmers.
My husband on the left, Cathy and Rick on the right. Goat audience around the show.
Left hoof is after and the right hoof is before.
The goat thinks about all this.
Serious fold over on the second older female goat. After the trimming both goats walked better.

Puffy Adder

This is what was lying across my driveway last week. It was a spreading adder or spread head as is locally called. It is a non venomous snake that eats toads and frogs.
I liked its markings
I got the whole hiss song and dance from this snake. It did not want to move off the driveway.
Such a cute tail all curled up.
