#NaBloWriMo ~ I live in "Wild Kingdom!"

Lately the wildlife has been making its presence known around SageMoon Cottage.  Back a few weeks ago Steffie and I were leaving the house to make a grocery run...as we went out the back door there was a precious masked bandit (raccoon) at the cats' food bowl with Buttons sitting right by her as she munched on cat chow. When the raccoon saw us she ran to the mini-van but then disappeared into the "little yard" when she saw that we kept heading for the van.

As we pulled back into the driveway from our shopping trip we startled a possum who was munching on cat chow with Buttons again sitting by and observing the action. We guess we need to cut down a little on the cat chow but there are four feral cats in the group who come to eat at our house. We don't want anyone to go without some food but we really don't want to encourage raccoons and possums to come eat at the food bowl. It is a conundrum.

Last week I looked out of the front window and the neighborhood hawk was sitting on my front fence. He sat there for quite a while. I had never seen him the up close. He is usually flying or in Mrs. Martin's tree across the street. I hope that with the hawk and the feral cats that are about that we don't have to worry about rodents trying to get into the house or yard. I do worry about the local chipmunks because their population is so small but voles, rats and mice are fair game as far as I am concerned.

My son turned 35 years old today. (I still consider it to be December 2nd.) I remember the day of his birth well. That boy is the apple of my eye and totally has my heart. I love him so very much.

I haven't been very good about blogging lately. I think about it and then the thought passes until I am too tired to write a coherent sentance. I miss blogging but sometimes time is not my friend. LOL!

I hope that you have a pleasant week.

Ciao!
