I'm not talking about true weather conditions.
I have been bouncing around with good news and bad news on the blog here...
it seems like every week it's one or the other!
Last Friday my day started early...
a cup of tea brewing, letting Leo and Lottie (the cats) outside.
It wasn't but a few sips into that cup of tea when I heard "danger".
I ran out to find a coyote vs. cat situation!
I grabbed fire wood from the nearby stack and started throwing them
into the bushes... to where the growling sounds came from.
The coyote came out with my Leo in his mouth.
I threw one more piece of wood with good aim and hit the coyote.
The cat got free.
He even actually ran after the coyote that had given up!
Then Leo ran up a tree.
I coaxed him down...
but he more or less fell and I caught him just in time to break his fall.
I got him inside... and Lottie too.
But although there was no bleeding... he was hurt.
He didn't stay with us very much longer.
It just breaks my heart.
I have this photo I love of him "assisting me" in the
Such a sweet boy.
The next night the hubs and I went out to a play
but when we got home we saw mayhem!
My wall shelf unit that holds my precious china nick knacks
grandma and her mother had fallen off the wall!
The nails were still in the wall... I just couldn't understand!?!
There were a few pieces that were salvaged... several others that
I hope to repair... a lot that are beyond help.
So, if you have any good ideas on this subject... please share them with me.
I will be happy to just have them in tact again.
Some battles you can not necessarily win... but you can weather through.
