It's Caturday!

Hello everybodies and everykitties!

Gracie here (with my face planted in the blanket - thanks Mummy for the flattering picture)

With the cold, wet and rainy weather Georgie and I have been spending lots of time indoors, snoozing -

But last week, we had an exciting time here on the farm!

The shepherd wanted to move the lady woolies out from the boy woolies fenced place.

We haven't been here all that long, but we heard that it used to involve lots of chasing the woolies around in the muck and mud and flopping of hands to get them back into the ladies pasture. This year, The Shepherd decided to call a friend of Mummy who has goggies that she has trained to chase the woolies around.

Special Sheep Goggies -

Mummy said it was just like watching the movie "Babe" - what ever that means.

The woolie ladies didn't much like the goggie chasing them around...

But after a few runs around the pasture, I think they got the idea.

And they popped right through the gate into the area where The Shepherd was waiting to take them into the Ladies Pasture.

Meanwhile, Vern, the BIGGEST woolie boy stood calmly with his halter on. The Shepherd never expected him to be so polite and had lots of friends and neighbors here to help in case he got out of hand.

Everyone had a good time (except Vern) and then they all had to go back to doing what they were doing before they came to help.

And the black kitty that Mummy showed you in her last post?

That's Bella - Mummy doesn't know if it is a boy or a girl - so she calls it Bella - Beautiful if it's a girl, or Bella Lugosi if it's a boy - Somebody said it belonged to one of the neighbors, but it was starving and lonely and the neighbors weren't feeding it, so Mummy has (to the dismay of The Shepherd) been giving it part of OUR DINNERS -

(Mummy here - No, little apple of my eye, you're not missing out on any dinners - I think our dear readers can figure that out - I just buy enough extra that there's some for Bella too. )

Well, folks, that's it for The Caturday Report!
Wishing everyone a Healthy and Happy New Year from everyone here on the farm!

Mister Wooley looks pretty formidable! We think we'd stay inside and nap, too. you think you might be getting a brother (or sister) soon? Once the stray gets a name, they tend to move in...just sayin!
Happy New Year!

So interesting about the sheep and the Border Collie (it is a Border Collie, isn't it???) Does this mean there's a puppy dog in your future? :)

Tina T-P said...

No, Kitties from Katnip - Bella is very afraid of The Shepherd and Leigh, there is too much landscaping investment to have a puppy - so we'll just keep borrowing... :-) Happy New Years everyone! T.

How did the sheep know what to do when the dog arrived??? I always thought the sheep had to be trained, too. Which just goes to show I really shouldn't be getting sheep anytime soon. No knowledge about them and no sheep dog!
