A few of you may remember that David was born in a nesting box and her mother, Miss Hissy and Elenore Hen fought for custody of the kittens. David has had two litters since then and returns to the same nesting box where she was born. Yesterday morning she gave birth to three (and maybe four) new kittens. The nursery nesting box is her ritual.
One of Slim's rituals is to adopt every rejected chicken, kitten and now goat on the place. She has befriended Ashenhurst, the twin kid rejected by mother Polly, and they hang around together at every opportunity, Poor Ashenhurst has had his head slammed in the door on several occasions as he attempts to trot inside the house behind Slim. That ain't gonna happen'!
