Inter-species Friendships

One of the most amazing things to me is how animals form relationships outside of their own species. I love to watch Maddie, our Newfie, with the various animals around the farm. Her favorite is Lucy our farmhouse cat. Lucy lives in the crawlspace beneath our guest cottage. She used to be an indoor cat until she proved that she could not be trusted to faithfully use a litter box. So we moved her outside. Don't feel sorry for her, because her home has all of the creature comforts including automatic feeder and waterer, heated bed, and a second heater for cold nights. She has the run of the farm and endless adventures. What amazes me is the bond that cat and dog have formed. They are quite affectionate with each other.

You may wonder what I have been up to....since my posting has become sporadic. Lately, construction and preparation to move has used up most of my time. I am still working on finishing the Raggedy Ann quilt and spending a bit of time planning my new sewing room. Once we have finally moved, I will decorate my sewing room and have an "open house" on this blog. Then I will once again turn on the creative flow and see where it takes me.

For the rest of the summer, though, I will be spending most of my time gardening and working around the farm. I will keep you posted as to what I am up to.

Hey Bev,

Lucy wishes that all the other kitties had a heated bed. :0) I love to see how animals make friends with one another.

My Miss Morgan has a *heated tuffet* inside...she'll get all stretched out like she's special or something..:0)..I think she has wonderful doggie dreamsz. :0)

Keep in touch, you hear me? :0)

What a lucky cat.

Our dog is so spoiled~she lays in front of the fire most of the day and sleeps and sighs. What a tough life.
Good luck with packing and moving.
