My Biggest Garden Pests

My Biggest Garden Pests

Can you see it? That nasty pest who’s demolishing my garden? He’s hiding behind what’s left of the clump of ornamental grass, next to those smaller rocks.

Life is Tough

Life is Tough

The kittens are almost 6 weeks old now and I must say, the perfect age for a house cat. They don’t need to grow anymore…I forbid it.

Your cat really needs you, even though she may not show it and chooses to put on a self-reliant air. Most cat owners worry a great deal about the […]

Baby Kitties Are a Sure Sign of Sprin...

Baby Kitties Are a Sure Sign of Spring in the Country!

Originally posted here on Real Country Living~June, 2009 Just about every spring, we have a batch of baby kitties taking up residence in our home. Normally, there are no cats allowed inside, but our girls insist that a mama and her babies deserve the royal treatment…so indoors they come. We have a special ‘maternity box’ […]
