Talk To The Animals


Meowwwwwer. Just a minute I will be right there. After opening the door to let Whiskers out to potty as he refuses to use litterbox no matter what the weather I go back to making a pot of chili only to hear grrrrrrrwow and I stop and go make Grouchio leave Dimples alone. She hates for anyone to bother her while she is napping. Waaaaaaow. Ok Grouchio I will play mouse with you for a minute then you are going outside. Later as I am over at Frans visiting I hear Diva. Mamaaaaaaa Mamaaaaaaaaa is all she says if I dare to leave the yard without her. I call to her and she comes down to the fence to wait for me to come back into our yard. Once I am back she goes off to lay in the sun. Baaaaaaaa, Baaaaaaaaaaa. Nitro has woke up from his nap and saw me. He is wanting his apple molasses cookies. I walk over with his treat and talk with him and Diva. Tramp sees me and starts whining which brings Lady and Sheba over to look at me and whine too. They are wanting their doggie biscuits since I seem to be giving out treats. The ducks and chickens are fussing. They aren't hungry, they are mad because I won't open the door and let them out. I go in and give them some beet pulp and check on the rabbits. Thumper wants a little pet but Flower says feed me! I sometimes wondered why people that were at home all day complained because they were lonely and had no one to talk to. I wondered why I never felt that way. Now I understand why I don't get lonely. I talk to the animals! The scary thing is they talk back!

I was just talking about this tonight at supper. I always talked to Lucy. Now that she is gone and Simon is left it is hard not having her to talk too. Simon is a 3 year old Siamese cat and well he does not like me much!! He is not as loving and sweet as Lucy was. She was just sit and listen and respond back. I would get lonely without an animal around. You have a whole ark (almost)!! Have fun...SAndy

With all those characters on your homestead you don't even have to leave home for entertainment.

Of course they talk back! It's funny, my girl Summer also says "Maaa", but Toggle says "Mooo". Thor, the younger of the two boy alpacas, is intensely curious yet very cautious; Feldspar just wants to be fed and left alone.

I really see a wonderful children's book here with your cast of characters. You have a talent of telling a very cute story.

Take care,

Hi Peggy.
Lovely farm yard you have there,
I talk to my plants.
Even though they dont talk back i
know when they need feeding and watering.

I think I'll call you Dr. Peggy Doolittle....makes me think of that song:
If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah
What a neat achievement that would be.

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Maybe take an animal degree.
We'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea.

We would converse in polar bear and python,
And we could curse in fluent kangaroo.
If people asked us, can you speak in rhinoceros,
We'd say, "Of courserous, can't you?"

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Think of all the things we could discuss
If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals,
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals,
And they could squeak and squawk and speak and talk to us.

XOXO
Love,
Lisa
