Farm Friday

We have a new....

refrigerator?
sofa?
vacuum?
car?

No. You know better.

We have a new pet.

A kitten.

Yes, I am a "whorder" badly in need of a 12 step program but I will thank you to keep your judgements to yourself.

You will judge me less harshly, I pray, when I tell you she was a little orphan kitty in the dairy barn at the farm where we get our milk.

And here's how it all went down. Because I am mentally retarded.

While waiting in the milking parlor for Katie to fill my milk jug, I looked through the window to the barn and noticed movement. It was her little boy, playing with something on the floor.

I went into the barn and saw him playing with three little kitty cats, cute as could be. Two calicos and a tuxedo.































A smart woman would have quickly closed the door and made like she saw nothing.

But I am not a smart woman.

So what do I do?

I call my girls over to come see.

I call my girls over to come see.

Like I said. Mentally retarded.

So Rosie comes over and like, dissolves into a puddle right there in a milking stall.

And goes,
canwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveone

And I'm like, NO, are you crazy child?

And she's like,
canwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveonecanwehaveone

And all over again, I say
.....no.....

And then she starts going,
pleaseprettypleaseIpromiseI'llhelptakecareofherpleaseprettypleaseIpromiseI'llhelptakecareofherpleaseprettypleaseIpromiseI'llhelptakecareofherpleaseprettypleaseIpromiseI'llhelptakecareofher

And then real firm like, I say
Call your father.

So then she's


















And then

















And the next thing I know we're driving home with our two gallons of milk and our kitty.


















Her name is Milky, btw.

Milky is precious!! Our house works the other way around b/c my husband would never ok more pets...so I just sneak them in all cute and rescued and dh has no choice but play with them and fall in love. And I figured after the great chicken fiascos of 2010 and 2011, and the great guinea demise of 2011, he can't say a word!

Thanks Meg! She's a doll. And yeah, I've brought 'em into the household the way you described, too. SOmetimes it's the only way to go. I hope you'll give chickens another chance someday? I learned from my mistakes in the past and so far so good this time around.

As the queen of all things four legged, I know you can relate to the loss of my Kit. Thanks for the kind words on my blog. And congrats to your latest four legged addition. I'm sure she'll bring lots of happiness to everyone in her new family - 2 and 4 legged!

Thanks
Lou Ann & Lexie too
