Yesterday Dizzy climbed up under the roof of the cabin again. Once she is up there, she can’t get down because the house wrap won’t give her any grip. Something really scared her to climb up there. I put the big ladder against the wall and very carefully and very slowly she climbed down, while meowing in a sad tone. Ah, how happy she was when she finally felt the ground under her feet again. Silly kitten. The tomcat is around again and I’m sure he chased her. He stays away from the yard when I’m around though.
I have quiet some work done in the past two days. Cleaned up some more around the yard and did a lot of measuring and cutting for the walls in the cabin. I couldn’t put the wall together yet, as the pieces of wood were damp from the rain. So I put them against the wall and let it all dry. Once it’s dried up nicely, I will screw the pieces of wood together and then cover it with osb sheets. I continued to put osb up to the wall under the living room window.
I also did some fence work. I noticed that the fence wire at the end of the big pasture was not very tight. I had some wire fasteners so could tighten it up. It was so funny. I drove the truck to the end of the pasture and the horses were just outside the gate of the small pasture. I was working on the fence wire for maybe 2 minutes when they came galloping to see what I was doing! Hahaha! That was just so funny. They stayed around me, grazing and checking me out. When I was done with the fence wires, I went into the pasture and dragged some dead trees out of the pasture. They are laying there for a few years now so perfect fire wood. Flicka was so curious when I started to drag the tree and I thought....hm...I got two horses here and look who is dragging the tree. Hahaha! I left the horses in the big pasture now. They come in the yard to have a drink but then they run off again to the big pasture. They actually gallop back. LOL Maybe worried I will close that gate again. They just want to graze as much as they can and they should, with winter coming closer. There is also more trees and bushes to shelter in the big pasture, which is great with the wind and rain we got going now.
After I was done with my chores, I took some time for bird watching in the yard. So many different kinds of birds are living in the woods. I have a huge family of Blue Jays flying around. They are most of the time too fast to get a nice picture. But got one today! I also noticed a nice woodpecker. Downy or Hairy, not sure which one it is. I also had a group of Yellow Rumped Warblers coming into the trees. Those are pretty but very fast little things. I could get a picture of one after many tries.
When I got ready to leave, Taz was nowhere to see. I called and called and waited another half hour for her to show up. But nope. She is such a independent cat. Sometimes she comes walking all the way from the big pasture. She loves to hang around the horses too. She knows them since she was born and feels safe with them. Dizzy on the other hand won’t leave me alone and follows me around where ever I go. She loves to be carried around too. She actually asks for it by standing straight up against my legs and meowing. When I lift her up she starts purring right away and relaxes. When she wants to walk again, she will just lean over a bit and I then put her down. She is such a cutie. Because of the rain we would get tonight, I let Dizzy in the trailer with food and water. Taz is a real farm cat and she will take care of herself. Dizzy is still learning and because she wasn’t born on a farm, I’m more careful with her. I wouldn’t want her to climb up under the cabin roof and sit there all night. Now she can cuddle up in her blankets and stay warm and dry. I hope Taz will stay out of trouble tonight and won’t get into a fight with that tomcat.
