It is cold damp and dreary today and we have possible sleet and snow through tonight. Babs is th only lamb still getting a bottle but she could already be weaned but I enjoy giving her small amounts.

We had a breakthrough with the third feral cat finally being comfortable enough to come up and get food while I'm at the bowl. I rubbed her back some and she didn't even look up but started purring. She has been coming down the drive with the others and she would sit a couple of feet away. You could tell she wanted to get some of that petting but just now got up the nerve. It has taken almost nine months to reach that confidence level with her. I have been making sure to get her some special treats at feeding time and she finally gave in.

The weather has been so damp that the herd has spent most of the last two days inside the barn shelter. I have shoveled about 100 pounds of manure since they are staying in place. :) I can't blame them and I have been giving them an extra ration of feed.

I still haven't figured out the interaction of our used to be feral cats to Lance and Sassy. All four of them are spending most of the time around the house and still use the hay barn when it's cold. None of the cats have any fear of the dogs and will go out to the edge of the yard when the dogs go out and try to play with them when they come back in. Whisky will come in the door to the porch whenever he gets the chance and I need to figure out how to get a picture of Sassy's reaction when Whiskey does the body rub on her legs. :)
