Fur Babies


A few hours later.....

 They are a week old today.....eyes are still closed, but Mama  is leaving them for longer bits of time and more often.  Our other cat is still not aware of them, which is good. The dog looks at them, does that loud snorting smelling and has a distinct puzzled look on his face.  When dog gets too close Mama wraps herself around the kits, and glares at him. Thus far no growling, which is a comfort. The orange one is male, which is usual for orange cats, the coloured one is male and two blacks are female, one of the black ones has a white tipped tail and a chest blaze.  At first glance the other black appears to be all black, but I believe I see  some dark grey stripes developing in her fur.
So that's the story here this past week.
let me know if your in my neighbourhood and would like a Kitten  :)

What I did on my Summer Vacation

I think these pictures say it all.  I spent several days away sailing and watching our dog 
go frogging.

After a while the water would get well 'stirred up'...but there would be the on going staring contest,
A couple of times in appeared as if the frogs jumped at him ....too funny.

Our waterside property has changed so much.  My FIL designed and built a dock, to suit his
boating needs in 1984/5,  a year of high water.  That  first year the water would lap up, on to the

dock.  Our children grew up with water coming to the top or near top of the dock ladder.
The water was just below the bottom step (above pic) in 1986. We are at the end of a small bay
an excellent place for frogs, turtles, beavers, muscrats, herons, small male humans in boats, with fishing lines  :))  It isn't a beachy swimming kind a place it used to be, but I still love it.
Happy Wednesday,
