I wish people would spay or neuter their animals. This one had nearly starved in the field and a vet refused to help the injured kitten, so we had to take it to the shelter, where they put it down. On top of that, we had to find a new home for our finches. The kitten seemed to view them as a snack.
Days after we rescued the kitten, my husband surprised me with a horseback ride and riding lessons for my birthday. I was ticked to death. I enjoyed the trail ride, but I'm also enjoying learning how to groom the horse, put the tack on, and how to control the horse with basic commands. It's also novel research, but you'll have to wait to see why.
Finally, I'm working to update all my blogs. I recently added a list of links to Carolina Towns and Trails, and I'm seriously considering featuring books by Carolina writers on Front Page Fiction. This blog, however, will remain my personal journal, though I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of that silly little cat.
