Nothing Much To See Here

Except insanely busy weeks at work, plus what I hope is just a cold (body aches, cough, and the sensation of having been run over by a truck.)

Tucker did get her stitches out Tuesday, though, and is doing fine–she is down 2.2 pounds from when I got her, so we are making slow progress. Lucky could probably use that weight moved over onto him! We’re thinking of slowly upping his grain while the weather is this cold. He gets all the hay he wants, but a few more calories can’t hurt in this weather.

And, apropos of nothing, I thought I would share a picture my mother sent me of Thursday, the amazing turkey-herding cat. Story behind the picture: the turkeys (there are about seventy) are Eastern wild turkeys that view my mom’s birdfeeders as their personal stash. Apparently Thursday (one of their five, possibly six, barn cats–Creamsicle hasn’t decided whether he’s staying) wanted a drink out of the sump pump runoff. The turkeys were between him and the water. Th e turkeys are apparently poor judges of relative size, and unable to count or comprehend that 1 cat < 70 turkeys.

    That is a cool picture. And here I thought I had a lot of turkeys, at 16.

      Mom once had to actually do an explanation for one of the bird counts (eBird, I think) because they didn’t believe her when she said “120 Eastern Wild Turkeys.” She had to send pictures. And the funny thing is you can have 120 wild turkeys and the can all still be completely buffaloed by a nine-pound cat.
