Two apparently wasn’t enough.

Deciding that two kitties was not going to get the job done for the homestead, we have welcomed two more kittens to our home.

Happily introducing Yuki and Katsu!

Two boys and two girls now.  Katsu and Yuki are older than Hellcat and Velcro, but the four of them seem to be getting along very well.  BG is wildly in love with them all, but it is Katsu that bears the brunt of her childish affection (read rough) with an astonishingly loud purr.  Katsu seems to love being held in a choke hold as long as it is BG doing the holding.  She and I have been at odd purposes as she can’t resist digging in my plants.  Oh well, I can forgive quite a lot for a cat that cheerfully gets mauled by my child without ever even offering to bite or scratch.

Always Moving Forward

Well, the building that was going to be our house, isn’t going to be our house, the well needs work, the wild pigs have invaded, the coyotes are too close for comfort, the land owner’s bank is being jerks, and our dog lost his battle to cancer.  That’s part of the long story, short.

As to the list above… we’re looking at our options, as we keep moving forward.  We’re still cleaning fence rows, beating back the brush, and cutting down trees.  (We bought a chainsaw!  CC has been having all sorts of fun with that!)  It would be very easy to let things like this discourage us and get us down, but we knew this wasn’t going to be easy when we decided to do it.  There really is very little that is worth having that you don’t have to work hard to get and keep…  Actually, I can’t think of a single thing.

That being said, we’re still committed to making our little homestead a reality.  Stay tuned to find out how we over come our hurdles.
