A couple of weekend ago, we put up a corn feeder for the wild life. The first day, the deer would not come near the feeder but the turkeys had no qualms.
Before I could get my camera from the back of the house to take a photo of the sun rise it had already appeared so I took a photo of the deer instead. If you enlarge the photo you can count them and see how the sun is reflecting red off the holly tree.
It has been a wonderful day with spring like weather and I went out to find what was blooming. Photos in the next post.
I had not meant to do any laundry today but the Laundry Gods had other ideas. I had to wash four loads of bedding due to the fact that Mz Maggie threw up on my bed. Maybe she is suffering Vertigo too. I think not as her tummy was slightly upset yesterday and I think she just got too hot. It is all my fault as I started letting her up on the bed to sleep with me if I took a nap. Then she was allowed on the bed while I watched TV at night. Before long she would wait until the wee hours of the morning while we were sleeping and jump up on the foot of the bed to finish out her sleep.I gave in and started letting her get up on the bed as soon as we did and she was a full fledge member of the pack. Now I have to break her of the bad habit that I let her acquire. I think after I get her to sleeping on her bed all night both the 4 legged and 2 legged animals will be happier.
The kitty justice is it will be harder to break the 2 legged animals from encouraging her to get on the bed than it will be in retraining the 4 legged animal.

That is indeed going to be a battle.....hard not to give in to those big sad eyes.

Maggie requested to get on the bed 3 times last night and each time, I told her No and she went back to her bed. It was dark so I did not have to look into those sad eyes. Peace

BTW: the header on my day4plus blog is not through a filter---well I guess you could call it that---I have some of those jell type stickers in the shape of stars on my window and I just took a picture through that. Weird huh!! MB

The cat we have, Baby Kitty, weighs about 14 to 16 pounds, black like a panther and stealthy. He wakes me up if I am not up before 5:00 AM. He meows and paws the mattress. So far he has only thrown up on the floor in the kitche. It is wood. He only throws up when somebody gives him a few "Friskie" treats. Any other treats is OK and he doesn't throw up.

Oh how neat... I love your LAND... We have alot of deer around here --along with all of the other critters---but we don't have enough land to put up a corn feeder... Wish we did....

Hope Mz Maggie is okay.... What a gorgeous doggie...

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sounds like we both have fur ball alarm clocks. We have rugs through out the house but no wall to wall carpet. Maggie usually throws up on the kitchen floor but never on a rug however, Sam Cat will hit a rug every time. Like this morning he got 2 rugs in different rooms. Maggie is now being treated like a dog and sleeping on her bed. Peace

Thanks. We are Blessed to have enough property to feed the wild life and we so enjoy it. I guess we should buy stock in TSC as we buy so much grain and seed there not counting things for the domestic animals. Peace
