Our Farm Helpers
If I haven't mentioned this before, I have a job off the farm. It's not really a day job, since I work nights. I am an Emergency Veterinarian at a small animal practice. That's right, chickening is actually just a hobby. A very, very time consuming one!
One of the perks of being a Veterinarian is the late night phone call to come to the rescue of some little critter. A few weeks ago, a friend found 2 orphan kittens. One had already died, and the other needed fostering. With 2 young girls who are obsessed with all things "baby animal" in the house, there was no way I was turning away this little bundle of need and fleas! The moment the girls saw her take that bottle, I knew she was a keeper in our house.
Now, the only thing better than getting a kitten, is getting TWO kittens. Our little kitten needed a friend. Hopefully, at least one of them will help keep the mouse population in check!
