Well did not get much done yesterday despite good intentions, but a really horrible thing happened. I was going to leave and saw 2 turkey vultures by the gate, they really are horrible birds I have to say. So I got out of the car and there is a very dead and half eaten cat. So I drive back up the driveway and find my cats and one is missing, he is really wandering even tho he is supposedly neutered, and I look everywhere, no cat, then I find no puppies either, even tho they were right there. So I look everywhere finally the puppies appear and they were sleeping in the bunkhouse right where I was at, but apparently sleeping well. Anyhow I was really upset about the cat, who is definitely going to be an inside cat when our house is done, and take DD to her afterschool thing (to which the parents were invited and it was very boring so I missed my walk for nothing except DD got a certificate for Most Improved Preschooler which does not say much for her initial behavior oops, she had never really been in a school setting before like that though so I guess its been good for her!) anyhow I was just so sick about the cat, the worse thing is I picked it up and put it under the trees I was so upset. Finally DH comes home, and up runs the missing and dead cat. I don't know who the other cat was though, and thats sad, there are coyotes and owls and hawks though, and we keep our cats locked up at night, or if we are gone. I will be very glad when the house is done though, and I think they will, except the the feral one, have to adjust to being inside cats again for the most part. What a shock but I am so glad he is ok.
