I'm a little behind schedule in offically welcoming Eve to the herd. I sold Shirli on Sunday the 8th and while I was waiting for the buyer to come and pick her up I saw that Julia at Room For 1 More in Harrisburg had posted Eve for sale.
I hadn't intended on replacing Choc-o-latte, but for some reason I just couldn't turn down Eve who is a first freshening yearling that is still in milk. She is a petite doe who placed third at the Oregon State Fair just before we purchased her. She enjoys attention from people and is Bekah's new favorite doe.
I am still trying to decide if I am going to breed her to Elijah or Midnight this coming year. Either way we are looking forward to seeing her second freshening udder and her offspring!
On July 23rd a couple of guys at the warehouse where I work discoverd a 10 day old kitten when they were moving a pallet. They called me and I came and got the little fellow that has now been dubbed "Cosmo".
Cosmo is our division mascot and goes to work with me every day. He enjoys "helping" me with all my administrative chores and loves all the attention the guys give him. Playing with him is a good way for them to take a stress break too.
Cosmo is now about 7 weeks old and this past week another little kitten was found in the industrial park. He is about 4 weeks old and was bedraggled, straving little thing when I first saw him. He has made great progress in the past few days and has already gained a few ounces! This cute little fluff ball, (seen here snuggling with Cosmo) has a strong will to live and is being adopted by a friend of mine up in Seattle area.
