Dripping wet in the Cattery

We had gotten some turf grass..

from Lowe's for the cattery, and because of other ..ahem..."priorities", had left the grass at the back of the truck for a few days..

To our dismay, when we unloaded them 2 days ago, some had turned kinda brown and mushy..so, yesterday, David tilled up the cattery earth and we started laying down the sod.

Then it started raining.

NO, it POURED...

....Cats and Dogs ( Pun intended )

I was so miserable laying the heavy soaked sod on the ground and mud had stuck onto my boots, so I was lugging around like 5 extra pounds on each foot, I was wet, I was cold, but we knew it had to be done.

AFTERWARDS, when I was back in the house, clean, snug and warm in my terry bath robe, watching The Amazing Race I started thinking that sometimes, to feel really good, we have to go through some really miserable times first...to learn new things, we have to go through hard lessons.

( all philosophical, bleh )

Anyway, here's pictures of some of the cats all of this was done for.

So you said "some of the cats" ... exactly how many cats do you have? I start to have a feeling that you are living in a large farm / range ... are you?

hi agnes..we have a dozen cats or so..and we live about 5 - 7 miles from the city, on a 5 acre piece of land..close enough to the city for EVERYTHING and yet far away enuff for a lotta privacy :)

*jealous* you live in a big farm/type place. I always wanted to live in a place where there is a big piece of land as I love animals... I want them all to graze around in freedom.. and Ive always wanted a goat too.. Do you have a goat by any chance letti?? lol. BTW lovely cats. Take care Letti Mwuahhhhhxx

That's why I like New Mexico. We usually go with the natural look. No grass. Makes yard work infinitely easier. :op

What do you think of a Texas rainstorm compared to a Malaysian rainy monsoon?

I totally understand where you are coming from. Around here and at my church, we say that we have valleys and peaks that we go through in our lifetime. But in order to enjoy those peaks and get to one, we have to go through a valley. And it is so true. If we never experience anything bad, then how can we really truly appreciate the great blessings that God gives everyday. I like philosiphsy, it stuff that really gets you thinking.

Well, I'm at the beach, so I'm gonna go! Tootles!

*~*God Bless*~*

Letti, looks like you have a serious mini-petting zoo going on at your house *haha*. I sincerely believe that people that care for animals are the ones with the most compassion and are definitely the best people to know. Of course, being an animal scientist, I am sort of biased....Good luck with the continued wedding preparations and no worries, all will turn out well.
