Moving, neighbors, and tenants

A couple of notes about Moving, the Neighbors and the current tenants.

The Moving

Moving is a stressful operation even when everything goes smoothly, and the tension goes up when the rails start to slip. But it’s done and we arrived in one piece… mostly!

On a short walk yesterday I discovered some of the neighbors. They are too far away to be heard, and I can sort of see them from the end of the driveway.

And the neighbors across the road. Although they are itinerant, as the farmer moves them from field to field.

This morning I took a little stroll with the camera to capture the mist. The mist was not as interesting… so I will have to try again. But one of the local weavers was busy.

When I turned around the tenants were waiting for me.

There are 7 altogether and they are afraid of humans. I am working on feeding and touching them. At least enough to capture for spaying and neutering, as well as some basic inoculations. I know both of the orange tigers are male, (only one is in the picture). The 3 dull orange and white patched kittens are friendliest, (center 3 white/orange)with the 2 brighter orange and white patched kittens (bookending the center four), are the shiest of the bunch. I don’t think they are all from the same mom, but certainly the same pop!!!

One of the neat things about moving and neighbors is getting to know them. Now you have a little view of the bigger neighbors. I have had a chance to meet some of the smaller neighbors too, and some are breathtaking! I’ll share them next time.

More Later! Beth
