With three out of four kids now owning rabbits, this was a big year for us in 4-H. Alexei and Ibis attended two 4-H rabbit shows, and we had two litters of babies, the first unsuccessful and the second a big old fluffy pile of cuteness. Of all the 4-H animal projects, this one is…

Cat Food

I realize it’s been a while.  And as you can tell by the title, this does not seem adoption related, but with one line at the end, I will bring it all together… watch.  😉 I just spent 45 minutes at PetSmart.  First, I realized the company that made my cat’s food changed the formulas…

I Love My Dogs And My Cat, BUT…..

Violet, Less Blue

She was very thin when she got here and it wasn’t because of a lack of available food. She was sad and had been living alone in the old green craftsman for four months. She had company a few times a day but it was no substitute for her lady. She missed her lady. She’s…

Now We Are Six

Dear Violet, I am writing to you because you are behind the clothes washing machine and can not hear me very well because Mom told me that I need to use my quiet voice that I use for kitties and babies because you are scared a little bit. Hi Violet. My name is Robert Edward…
