The house we purchased here in Northeast Kansas ended up coming with two cats, 12 chickens, and two ducks! Yes, the sellers left their pets behind. Can you believe it? Neither could we. We continue to be horrified.
We are all moved! It's taken me a while to sit down and admit this as it's been "traumatic". I returned to Kansas with the last load on June 29, and we didn't finish unloading the truck until yesterday!
There I was, minding my own business, getting hay for my sheep, when lo, under yonder pallet, a critter doth hissed! I screeched and laughed. Hhheee's bbbaaaccckkk!
So, a couple of weeks ago, in the middle of the night, I sat bolt upright in bed having heard a cat scream the most blood-curdling scream ever. I woke up yelling our outdoor cat's name, Tito, knowing for sure the scream meant he was in the throes of death.
Well, we made it through Hurricane Irma after sheltering in-place. We did not have any significant damage. The worst that happened was the metal cover over our ag well was peeled back like the lid on a sardine can.
