    Default 4 horses, 6 dogs, 1 cat +++++

    Sigh.
    So an errant sheep has decided to move in. Our TWH is now his new homie. Perchx hates him/her/it so we WILL put a stop to that . George the Basset thinks new sheep is a rather odd looking rabbit and throws his big tubby body against the kennel fence in an effort to chase odd bunny. I believe Iwill name him Baaaarack for reasons too numerous to list here.
    Now a black kitty has adopted us. I'm guessing he is a couple months old. He will visit the vet on Monday and then he will join the menagerie here. Not sure of a name yet. I don't know why we name our cats, our present one never referred to as Jackson, he is just "kitty". I'm sure we will come up with something very unique for the new one...like "Black Kitty".
    As I told the vet before, I might as well just sign my paycheck over to him.
    Sigh.

    Ummm, it might be because you poked the fates by naming your place 3 Dogs Farm.
    The fates might have thought, "Hmmm, let's really screw with her for that name."
    And now that you've mentioned 'bunny' in your post...I'm betting one shows up at your place in the next month or so.

    So howzabout a new farm name? Maybe something like Wandering Thing Farm?
    Then you can shorten it to WTF?


    (although if you call it WTF then you're bound to end up with an actual fruitbat next, LOL)

    DH says there is a sign down by the road that says "dump all of your animals here".
    I was thinking of changing 3dogfarm to Noah's Bark.

    Not just the sign by the road...

    There's also a neon spotlight that shines out into the Universe.

    Only Critters can see it. The messages appear to rotate... they include, "Warm, Soft Beds," "Good Eats," "Sucker Human," and "Easy Work."

    So that's what that bright light is! I thought it was just the security light that was here when we moved in.. I believe your description of us is spot on. DH took a little while, but he's worse than me now.

    Too few cats? Great. Thanks for the vibes.

    RIP Sasha, best dog ever, pictured shortly before she died, Death either by euthanasia or natural causes is only the end of the animal inhabiting its body; I believe the spirit lives on.

    Oh, there are definitely signs in the animal world. I'm convinced they have a guidebook, too, like those ones for people that rate hotels.

    My Mom, who rapidly accumulated cats at any place she ever lived, used to joke that she had the Feline Statue of Liberty standing in her yard, with an inscription on the base reading, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to eat free."
