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.
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? :
