My new feral friend

Over the last several months I have noticed a visiting cat on the property. Even though we are somewhat rural we rarely see any stray cats and when we do they don't stick around since we have several other resident cats wandering aimlessly. This cat was just asking to be caught, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Without much effort I caught this pretty little thing in my Have-A-Heart trap.

Ooooh, she looks ANGRY! Doesn't she? Actually she is more frozen with fear but doing all right. In a few days I will let her out so she can be free again.

A rabbits nest

It's been a long, cold winter in Ohio with temperatures slowly creeping up but this was a nice sign that Spring really is here. Tonight, John and I were treated to watching a mom rabbit come back to her nest to feed her buns. We did not know there was a nest so close to the house as she hide them so well! After she left we went and took a peak. Looks like they will be leaving very soon. How fun to see them before they go.
