Downsizing our Animals
This year our cat Chloe gave birth to two litters of kittens. They were so cute and adorable. But we couldn't give them away, and then Chloe died and left us the care of her little kitties...We ended up with four older kittens and 4 little ones. Then one died. The cats all continued to grow. We now had 7 cats and our dog became pregnant! She gave birth to 11 puppies! I started to lose my mind....
This last week my husband placed an ad for the cats and kittens in the local paper. Boom! The phone was ringing off the hook! We are down to 3 cats and there is someone coming today for sure. So by tomorrow we may only have one cat left. I believe we may keep one, because we live in the country and will get mice in the house now that the weather is cold. Our cats are all good micers!
It is such a relief to know that they have gone to good homes! I like these animals but enough was enough!
We will place an ad for our puppies probably next week. They are adorable and will be ready to go in two more weeks. These guys and gals are almost full blooded black lab so we are hoping to sell them. We may let our Rachel keep one. I will be relieved that in just a few weeks we will be back to 1 cat, 1 or 2 dogs, and 3 horses, instead of 7 cats, 12 dogs and 3 horses!!!!
I may get my mind back as well!!!!
