Sadly my Mother died in the early hours of Friday morning. It was not unexpected but she had seemed to be improving a little.
The last couple of days have been taken up with the bureaucracy which follows such an event, but life goes on in other areas and all the animals are enjoying this long spell of clement weather as are we.
The alpacas are looking lovely and fluffy instead of wet and bedraggled and even the chickens seem to have more of a spring in their step.
The kittens are going to be spayed on Tuesday because they are getting very brave and wondering far and wide - so far within our bounderies - but we are very concerned that they do not produce a litter of kittens for us to home. They are seriously food oriented so I should think they will be more concerned with the fact that they will not have their usual Shredded Wheat and milk for breakfast than anything else.
