The rabies test came back negative on the cat.  We were both really relieved; however, there was the sad and guilty feeling of knowing we euthanized our cat unnecessarily. 

On a lighter note, the ewe who we have been doctoring and milking out for over two weeks now finally allowed her babies to nurse both sides.  So, we held off on milking her out last night, but tonight will give her a shot of penicillin, doctor her, and possibly milk her out for hopefully the last time.  Hank (the llama) took his wormer like a champ.  He didn’t really know he was taking it because we snuck it in some grain.  A mama ewe and baby got out and helped themselves to the garden yesterday.  It doesn’t appear as if they did too much damage, so over the weekend we will have to walk the pasture fence and see if we can find a place where they got out.

Tonight we are taking Cooter to the vet to check his yearly shots and a check up.  Since our other cat, Psycho, just died from pneumonia and Cooter has been sounding congested we want to make sure he is okay.  He is our last cat, so we intend to guard him like a hawk.  Our blue heeler, Ash, is still favoring her back leg.  We are going to hold off on a vet visit since she is starting to put weight on it.  Hopefully she will make a full recovery soon.  Otherwise, we might as well just sign over our paychecks to the vet. LOL

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
