VISITORS

My daughter and her family are on the move again.  Two years ago they stayed with me between house closings and so now they are doing the same again.  

Step one was to bring loads of their possessions to store in my barn.  Step two was to bring the hedgehog Winkie for me to babysit.
Winkie loves a bath.
I did not bathe Winkie because she stayed hidden from me in her box but I drew a picture of a hedgehog to celebrate her visit and for my Pet Journal.

Step 3 was drop off of granddaughter Hope and her two cats Pinky and Simon.  

Hope is now fourteen and the cats are ten.  Cats are HUGE and are to stay in the utility room until they go to the new home.  Simon already found an escape and got under the house but Hope was able to  lure him back with tuna in a glass bowl and she tapped on the bowl until he appeared again.  After their move two years ago Pinky disappeared at the new home and did not turn up until THREE MONTHS later.  No kidding. That story with a video of Pinky's return her HERE

Today Chelle, Kenny,  the big moving van and the two dogs will arrive.

Anna the Golden Retriever and Sofie the long haired Dachshund.
They will all stay a week and I am not sure Slim is fully prepared.  So far she has been okay with the hedgehog, Hope and the cats but....well, it is her job to run dogs off the property.

    You have your hands full and I am pretty certain I would be neglecting everyone else to watch Winkie.

  7. You should have plenty of material for new blog posts--maybe no time to write them over the next week, but good stuff to save and share later.

  9. Did not know hedgehogs liked to swim. How cute. That was one honking big cat or a really tiny version of Hope. She had her arms full.
    Enjoy your company and hope Slim does also.
