And the neighbor cats have grown in numbers...and they stop by a few times a day for the buffet. I have to watch them eat...if I don't, the banties hear the kitties and try to join them at the buffet table.
Poor little Carmel, yeah, I loved that fat little hen! I did snatch the cat food away from the chooks!
So, the bottom line, for me anyway...I wouldn't give up the companionship or that warm fuzzy feeling I get from any of my animals! They add so much to my life. You can't buy that. Thank you again, for your caring hearts~~~big hugs to you from me~~~Elaine
