Our newest family member:)

Our kitty cat,  Hyde, has been missing for nearly three weeks.  While I secretly hope and pray  that another family mistook her for a stray and has taken her in, I am afraid she has met an untimely end.   Needless to say, the kids have taken it pretty hard, but it hit Bubba hardest of all.   I didn’t realize how hard he had taken the absence of our Hydey kitty until a new kitten showed up here yesterday!  Yes, that weird cat Murphy’s law kicked in yesterday and deposited a wormy, flea bitten, skinned up runt of a kitten in our yard.  Don’t get me wrong..it is adorable.  I just didn’t want another cat right now.  Mostly because I am hoping Hyde will still come home.  Being the good citizen I am, I put in a call and email to a local no kill shelter about taking in this little guy.  Unfortunately,  they have not called back and now it is too late.  We are officially keeping it.  It is sleeping in our laundry room as I type this.  The kids named it “Scarface” and tomorrow will involve bathing, deworming and the purchasing of a litter box and litter.

Behold….Scarface!

 

Before we discovered Scarface, we found Mr. Turtle.  We rescued him from certain death in the middle of the road..only to find out that it is illegal in the state of TN to keep any wildlife as a pet, especially the state reptile!  Mr. Turtle is a box turtle and is pretty dadgum cute!  Tomorrow, we will return him to the area where we found him and re release him.  No worries, we won’t leave him in the road:)  You would think it would be easy photographing a turtle but his guy was camera shy and FAST!

Anyone care to guess what this is? :

    Aww, Scarface is adorable! Isn’t it funny when you get something to replace what you’ve lost, and you didn’t even realize you wanted a replacement? Best of luck with your new kitty.

    As for the mystery lumps, that looks suspiciously like turdage to me!

    You are both correct! We managed to scare the poop out of poor Mr. Turtle as he was trying to run away as fast as his stubby little legs would carry him:) The kids found it funny but kinda gross that I took a picture of the poop:)

A BRAVE MAN IS A MAN WHO DARES TO LOOK THE DEVIL IN THE FACE AND TELL HIM HE IS A DEVIL-James A Garfield

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO what a ride!'
