I did a head count today of all the animals on the farm:
Horses - 3
Chickens - 4
Dogs - 1
Cats, both barn and house - 13
Every cat and dog was a rescue of some sort, either a stray that found its way here, or an animal I was handed and just couldn't say no to. Some have weird rescue stories - I'll save that for another day. It was enough today just to see that grand total and flinch. I am grateful we have the room to do this, and to my husband for putting up with my penchant for rescuing animals in need!
Yesterday was my anniversary, but my husband was out of town so we're celebrating today. Two things I KNOW I won't get: a kitten or a puppy. And that's okay!
