Re: What's up for your weekend?
I'll be spending the weekend getting a stray cat acclimated to our
A bunch of cats chose our yard for their trysting place a couple of weeks
ago. ET took a beating, and seemed friendly, following me when I brought
food and water, and sitting on my feet when I was weeding. (Named ET because
he kept saying "home" "go home". _
I was able to get him to the vet yesterday for a neuter, shots, etc.
Fortunately he's FIV and FeLeuk neg. I was going to put him through the
Humane Society's adoption program, but he's got some pretty bad scars and
had to be shaved because he was so knotted and matted.
Unfortunately, he's older and bigger than Diesel, who's only had kittens or
young cats to accept. He also doesn't seem to like dogs, and has swiped a
couple of times at Dreyfuss. There's only one way Dreyfuss can get in and
out of the house, and that way leads through the utility/mud room where ET
is now living.
I let both of our cats onto the screened porch for a while this morning and
let ET come into the house. He's obviously been a house pet at some time.
Keep your fingers crossed. Grayman still doesn't like to be picked up, and
is still skittish, but will flop on my feet when I give him a skritch, and
will purr like crazy.
Did I offer to send the "bath and a nap" series of photos to you guys?
Diesel gave Grayman a good wash down a couple of weeks ago.

Subject: [CHAT] What's up for your weekend?
What's everyone's plans for gardening this weekend? It should be sunny
and warm here, hopefully not too windy. The winds were ferocious
yesterday - gusts up to 50mph - but it seems to have calmed down this
I hope to be able to ride this weekend so my gardening time won't be
lengthy. But I am going to try and get the peppers in the ground.
Hopefully I have enough row cover to protect both the beds, if not I'll
leave the chile peppers in the greenhouse till next week. I have to take
the cover off the peas and figure out some sort of rabbit defense. We
have the hot wire but plugging it in requires unplugging the lights for
the hay shed, so I'm going to ask husband to see if he can't come up
On husband's list will also be repairing the back lawn - there's a lot
of damage from the dogs digging after gophers. And I used to have the
corners planted with various perennials, but they never got watered very
well, so that's a mess.
After the peppers I am going to tackle weeds in the front garden. Gawd
what a job that's going to be, but if you never start you never finish.
Although in weeding it seems that you never finish no matter what, so
maybe I need a different motivating mantra.
