It’s “Animals Gone Wild ” week here! Ted’s chill in his pool eating mango! He’s out growing his mayo lid pool so we’ve decided to start a go fund-me page to raise money for a really big pool!
Leo’s favorite person is the one who really doesn’t like cats. He is determined to watch YouTube and whatever game Christian is playing.
There has been a chicken and her four babies (they aren’t little anymore) that gets inside our property. Christian has chunked them over the fence because at night they are roosting on the columns he is putting the table on. We don’t want them doing their business on our table! That hasn’t worked – they come back. Someone came and said the owners can’t keep them out of our property and wants us to buy them. We said no. Yesterday one of our dogs ate a chicken. Haven’t heard anything about that….yet.
The rabbits have had some excitement this week. We have been experimenting with ways to keep hay in their cages without them using the bathroom all over it. There has been too much wasted hay and it took us too long to find it in the first place! Our hay has been planted but has a ways to go before harvesting. So, we discovered cutting a hole in a two liter soda bottle and stuffing with hay seems to work very well. We put a bottle in two cages, first hanging it but they had a hard time with it because it would spin. Then hooked it to the floor of the cage and that seemed to work well. I have been saving coke bottles for almost two years – I’ve given many away but have been thinking they would come in handy for some project for Sunday School. I cut three inch holes in almost forty coke bottles and then the guys stuffed them with hay. The rabbits are going crazy over them, tossing them up and rolling them around, but this morning there was hardly any soiled hay in the cages! Does double duty – saves hay and beats boredom! Now I have to find about one hundred forty more bottles!
