Have you seen the movie The Lord of the Rings?
If so, then you're familiar with the phrase from Schmiegel where he stares at the ring and says "my precious".
Well, my Precious is not an inanimate thing, she's a soft and squishy, cuddly cat...
and she's sitting on my iPad!
She's the eldest of our animals at eleven years old.
We adopted her from the SPCA where we used to live when she was eight weeks old.
Someone found her on the side of a busy highway as a newborn kitten and brought her to the SPCA to be cared for.
We first saw her when she was only a couple of weeks old and CountryBoy fell in love with her. Had to have her. So, when she was old enough to be adopted she became ours.
She's a sweetie pie and a talker and always has something to say!
She's adjusting to life on the road. She would love to go outside and meander around though like she did back home on the 'farm' but it's too large a space for her to wander around. There are also too many wild varmints like coyotes and foxes out there as well.
We tried one of LizzieBelle's harnesses on her for size. Thought maybe we could teach her to walk on a leash.
She did OK for about one minute.
Then, she became Houdini and pulled her head and feet right out of the harness in one swift movement and went underneath the 5th wheel leaving CountryBoy holding an empty leash and harness.
Her eyes were HUGE! What an enormous new world for her.
She still wants to venture outside but she'll have to wait until we get a harness that fits her.
For now, she'll stay indoors and lay by the screen door and watch the birds at the feeder and continue to be My Precious girl!
Till next time,
