The good the bad and the UGLY!
Gas Stations of History:
UPDATE!.....Just before publishing this, the kitten story changed. I had the black Tom locked in the basement, Sherry just looked outside and ther are 6 kittens out there playing. Someone brok Tom out of jail. LOL
For Saturday’s stuff:
Today was strange. I designed a feeder that I thought I could put a month’s cat food in and the larger animals could not get to it. I planned to use 4” PVC pipe that the kittens could enter and the tunnel be longer than the Raccoon’s arm. I was going to anchor it so it could not be moved, it would be water proof.
However this morning I was going out to tell Michelle (neighbor & cat lover,feeder) about the snake bite and she informed me she had fed all the kittens last night some baked salmon, they loved it.(of course). But recovering her dish this AM she could see only one kitten, a black one. I looked around and saw no sign of a fight, etc. I quickly checked the trail camera and the only shot was at 6:15AM with 3 kitties eating in the storage building. The only one left is a little black tom. He stuck with Sherry and I like glue.
I promised Michelle I would keep him in the basement until tomorrow when she had a home for him. Amazing a few weeks ago we had a mama and 7 kitties and now only one kitten. A little sad. Except one black Tom will have a home and be fixed.
I got a call today from Poison control. After asking many questions, They said everything sounded good and they would close my case. I was glad to hear that.
That little red spot is where all the trouble began. it is hard to see the actual bite, but it is the slightly darker spot. Nothing dramatic just a dark puncture wound. I have better pictures but they are on the phone taken at the hospital but I cannot transfer to the computer. I hope to learn how one day.
The Bad & Ugly
I just heard of the death of a niece who had the Corona Virus. My nephew (her husband is in the hospital with the virus), also a son. Prayers appreciated. God is still GOOD!
