My day has been pretty lame.
Found out that the owner of the farm I work at's mother died. Which is sad. :c
And my cat crawled under the deck and got all muddy - again.
Note; He's a black and white cat. D<


edit;
I work at a farm in exchange for free boarding for my horse.
Basicly I do all the feeding/watering for all the animals. Ah.. 11 Horses, 5 Cows, 2 Half-grown Calves, 2 Guinea Hens, 4 Cats, and 2 Dogs.

...geez, I'd rather just pay for boarding.
Wait, how long do the chores take, and how much is the boarding?

Oh, I don't mind doing the chores, it usually takes 1-2 hours a day and I don't have to do it every day. Actually.. I think it's like once a week is what was agreed upon but I just love to spend time out there.

And the work is also for the horse. Forgot to mention that xD He's mine already but I agreed to work for a year in exchange for him. This was last summer though, and I've already pretty much paid off my time.


Edit;
Going out there now to work with him, yay c:

Oh well then, if you don't have to do it every day and you don't have to do it for all eternity then I'd say let me have that job right along side you <3

Thats really cool Smile I love farm animals... which is exactly why I live in the middle of an urban area Razz
I'm not really a horse person though. I would prefer working with goats, sheep, cows and pigs.

rofl, the chores are really easy. It's basicly tossing flakes of hay at the horses and filling water tubs. xD
And... Pigs scare me. :c
I watched this episode of Criminal Minds once where they killed people, chopped 'em up, and fed them to pigs. Which just made my unease of them greater. Dx

But yar, I love horses, especially mine. He's an appaloosa named Sly. He is vury epic. ;D

Sly! How cute Smile
I like pigs. Contrary to popular belief, they're actually quite clean. They just bathe in mud to keep from getting sunburned. They will eat nibble at your fingers if you get too close, but that's the same with horses isn't it?

Eh, not really. Horses are herbivores while pigs are omnivores. Some mean/mistreated/upset horses may bite, but they won't eat you. *doesn't like the thought of being eaten* xD

One of my favorite things to do there though is just lounge about in the hay mow with the cats. One of them is a black and white tuxedo cat and he has this little black smudge on his upper lip. Basicly it looks like he has a mustache. So I call him Jake the Mustache. xD

Hmm... In my little experience with horses, I was always told to keep my fingers away from their mouths because they might think that fingers are food and accidentally bite them. It's the same with pigs. Pigs have reeeally bad eye sight.

That sounds very peaceful Smile Jake the Mustache Very Happy I love it.
My cat's name is Nola... sometimes we call her Nola Granola, or Nola Ebola [which, now that I think if it, is a bit morbid Neutral] She's white with brown tints on her back and legs. She has a bi-color marking in dark brown on her face and the same dark brown on her tail.

Not shelter cats, but pretty close.
The oldest (Rascal) I got when I was six from my uncles farm.
Jack I got three years ago at the city fair. There was this old metal cage off to the side and a sign that said 'Free Kittens'
He was the only one left. Apparently he 'nipped' at some little kid so nobody wanted him. I think they planed on tossing him in the river. D; Needless to say he came home with me asap. We even went on the Ferris Wheel together n_n
And Weenie is from the farm I board my horse at. Got her last summer, both her eys where filled with gunk and one was actually coming out of her skull. An infection got behind it and was forcing the eye out.. It was pretty nasty. ;3;
They think she fell out of the hay mow and that jarred the eye loose a bit, then the dust particles from the hay got back there and an abscess started.
Got her some medicine and cleaned her eyes out three times a day for a week. Managed to save one, but the bad one that was popping out.. eh. It eventually just dissolved away.
Poor baby :c

Aww, poor baby! Sad She's lucky to have a cool owner like you! Razz
My kitty was found in an abandonned attic with kittens, and all of her kittens were sold but no-one wanted her. She'd been in the shelter for over two months when we saw her, probably would've been put down if she hadn't been adopted soon. Sad She's a spoiled brat now, she's laying in her cat bed snoring away.

Hahaha!! xD

My cat has "cheese-dar" (like radar, except for cheese..xP), and she had learned to recognize the sound of the cheese bag opening, or even the refrigerator door, and she comes running and meowing and pleading and purring and pulling out every little "look how cute I am!" trick in the book.

Do your cats like to eat food right out of your hands? Smile
