Look who's here

The babes are out!


 Momma has been very friendly and I can get within ten feet of her and throw out her bread.  Skinny Limper was just as trusting last year.  I showed her fawns in mid July which was late, this year the babes are right on schedule.  I haven't seen her, Big Daddy, Young Buck, or others since fall, just this one doe that I named Millie.
Our other wild cat, Squeak, is still coming around.  I touched him gently and felt nothing but coarse hair and bones. He used to woof down food so I added a Drontal tablet in a tablespoon of canned a few months back and it disappeared.  Didn't help.  He wants to eat and never left a speck of food before (unless he smelled the liquid vitamins), but now his is.  He moves over to the dried food so I think he's just getting finicky.  I will withhold the canned for two days and then stick another pill in a small amount.  I hope it does the trick.  He seems healthy otherwise and this pill is for all types of worms including hook. 
My car got new shoes (tires), my husband's had almost a thousand in repairs, and my sister's paint job and replacement door will be ready Monday.  All at one time!  But they are all safe to drive now and that's more important. 
 
Hope your weekend is going well.

Aww. My mom took a kitten to keep from her resident wild cat. Nope. Never can catch her to get her spayed. We keep trying. She is the smartest cat around her home. Only one they cannot catch. The kitten looks like a teeny, tiny Bud. ;)

What beautiful deer! I know you must enjoy watching them! They are so pretty.
I love hearing about your wild cats, too. It is so nice of you to take care of them--they certainly need someone!

Love your deer pictures, Marly! We saw baby turkeys on our way home from the farmer's market this morning. Too cute!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The deer look so pretty. Do they eat your flowers? The ones around here eat everything in sight.

Ouch on the car fixing and spending. That seems to be happening here too -- one fix after another, none cheap. Sigh. Old cars. Cute baby deer! Hope the stray cat eats that pill....

You're in a nice place to have deer coming in your yard.. They are so pretty and must be a joy to watch. They know where the good food is. The kitties know too. I hope Squeak will cooperate with you and take the pills.
Enjoy your weekend. The 4th of July will be here in less than two weeks.. The days sure are flying by..
Leaves will be turning on the trees before we know it.

The fawns are so adorable! We haven't seen any babies here yet but it won't be soon now I'm sure. Hope the dewormer works for Squeak and ouch on all the repair bills!
