Went outside and discovered this little feline at our doorstep. A pretty little thing, sweet too, but we have no idea where she came from. It's not like we have neighbors nearby. It's at least a mile, probably more and she would have to cross creeks and climb hillsides. Why would she do that? Probably because she hoped we would feed her, which we did. We are calling her The Cat. Shadow the dog calls her Sassy as she likes to slap her. Bam! If this is your kitty, or if you recognize her let us know.
Mark and I got to talking (AKA arguing) about these over-sized mosquito creatures and decided to google it. I was always told they eat mosquitoes, Mark thought they sucked plants. Wrong on both accounts. They don't eat in this stage. They hatch out of ponds and just mate. Short, but good life I am sure.
Last, but not least, what are these men doing? Also of note is the grass they are on. We hauled in loads of composted horse poop and planted it last fall. We are happy to see it grew. Of course now we have to mow it. Maybe we should have left the rocks and weeds?
