The Return of the Supervisor





Ya I know I said I was gonna limit the frivolous cutesy posts but I had to do a little excavating job this morning early and I had to share.

At least one of my supervisors has finally decided to clock back in and get back to work. She followed me around as I looked for my shovel. I always forget what shed or building I leave it in. Actually I have two or three but I like one in particular. Anyway she was on my tail being sure I didn't lollygag around or waste precious work time.

The above picture is her reminding me I have a stack of Cedar that needs splitting this year as it has cured long enough... Thank you!!!

"This will make excellent heat for my nap time buddy".

"Oh and pick up these stakes that were blown over from the storm while your at it slacker."

Her name is Penelope and she is the one that had the snow baby kittens last March. After we got her fixed and brought her in the house while she recovered she never left and now comes and goes as she sees fit. She is a man's cat only however and does not like to be handled by women at all.  She tolerates the wife occasionally but for the most part will only willingly climb up on my son or I.  When she decides it is cuddle time you can hear her from half a mile away as her purring is so loud and you will allow her cuddle time or else.

She is also the smallest full grown cat I have ever seen. About half the size of a normal house cat. In fact her size is one reason I let her become a full time house cat because I am really worried one of the local hawks will get her if she strays out too far.

I guess it's been warm long enough that the supervisor can get back to work. My slack time has come to an end.

Keep Prepping Everyone!!!

  2. softy....Who said that?? Our oldest cat Spooky was following ahead of me this am. He would stop a few feet in front of me meow, stretch, then try and roll on his side like he was saying pick me up and pet me. Oh course I did. He follows my youngest daughter around like a lost puppy dog.

    1. Rob - none of the male cats outside of the demon kitten from hell that has now grown up but is still a pain in the ass. Are all that supervisor/follow type. But the Mrs. keeps the Males locked up because they roam too far. The females never get more than 20 feet or so from the house or barn unless someone is with them.

    1. Carolyn - It would seem I am blessed with cats yes. People dump them and they just keep moving in and the wife is so soft hearted and all. Eventually I give up and give in. If we find a home for one, and we found five homes this year I think, another pops up in it's place in a few weeks or months.

      I think we are going to get however many can fit in the available buildings no matter what we do.

  4. That cat was giving you the look, I can read cat body language and let me tell you, she has had about enough of your slacking off, you better get your act together and get the work done the pet the kitty. My supervisors took the day off, it was warm and sunny and they disappeared most of the day, probably went to a management seminar out at the barn.

    1. Sf - That little cat is a feisty one but she has only one speed when walking and it's mozy. She don't get in a hurry for much of anything. Not even food.

  5. PP. I hope you will help.me help a fellow homesteader. Carolyn @ Krazo acres has a doe with gangrene mastitis. I tried to send here info but her site will not let me comment anonymously. I see that you comment there, so if there is any way you could make her aware of the situation. The doe can survive but needs quick actionand will not be easy. Thanks. Kathy Miller. Birch Tree.

  7. My sister a number of years ago had a tiny (male) cat that looked much like her. That cat had the same muted tiger stripes and was small (as is my black cat), which is easily explained by being 1/2 Siamese.

    1. Russ - Her legs are about half the length of the other cats and her body length is maybe 2/3rds overall. One reason she managed to have kittens was the fact that I didn't think she was full grown when she showed up otherwise it would have been immediate vet appointment.
