Yesterday morning I was feeding the cats when I realized there was an extra one. Every night I have lots of extras as I have a automatic feeder on the back porch and the opossums, neighborhood cats, etc come up to eat. This little fellow would not stop crying. He gets right under your feet and makes it almost impossible to walk. I fed him with the others and the funny thing is if Whiskers and Dimples were not fixed I would swear the kitten belonged to them. He looks like one of their offspring would if they had any. Anyway I left him alone after feeding him but he followed me everywhere. He even ran into the house everytime the handyman left the door open. He was still here this morning and is now asleep on the back of the sofa. I think someone sat him and another kitten out as my neighbor has a stripped one at her house. That happens a lot around here. But anyway for now I have named the little fellow Groucho and he seems to like it. Next time I go to tractor supply I am going to get the vaccines to give him. Bet he won't like me to well when I stick him with a needle. But he loved having his picture taken and of course Miss Diva does not want anyone or anything getting more camera time than her. After all she is THE diva around here. I let her and the chickens run around the yard all afternoon. She was fine till I went in the house. She had to come up and cry outside the door till I went back outside. She was fine for awhile till she saw I had the camera and had to come back to check it out. I raked and burnt leaves for 2 days and can't tell it. I have also raked and carried the piles to our compost pile. The compost is bigger but you still can't tell I raked! Can't believe its already November. The holidays are fast approaching! We are so blessed here on the homestead but that's for tomorrow's Thankful Thursday post.
Have a great evening and count those blessings!
