Halcyon and Erich have moved into their new house and although they are thrilled to have AC again, they are not so thrilled that they can't keep their cat Turkish there. So, Turkish has come to visit Four Mile Farm! For a cat that spent his whole life indoors, he's doing amazingly well! "City Cat" has immediately become "Country Cat". He is quite fond of the goats in particular but he really isn't choosy. He'll hang out with the horse or the cow as well. The problem is that they don't normally stand still long enough for him to rub against their legs. He reminds me of the crazy cat "Mary D. Cat" in the Hank the Cowdog story. At first the goats were scared of him because he didn't act how they thought cats should act, but they are used to him now.
The above picture is the view from the deck gate at feeding time. Turkish risks life and limb to get up on those steps among the kids. Two seconds before I snapped this shot he WAS up there with them but one of the kids head butted him right off, so the picture shows him coming back for more.
We are working on getting the house presentable and planning a trip to East Texas next week. Goodness, it sounds like a "whole 'nother country" doesn't it?
"East Texas!" LOL
Well, it takes all day to drive over there and with a loaded horse trailer it's probably going to take all night as well! We plan to take Thunder and Aileas as well if we can get them both loaded. That oughta be quite an adventure!
