It was cool to give belly rubs to some enormous pigs and pet some massive cows. All the animals were super friendly. One of the goats just wanted to follow me around. I seriously love goats. There was baby lamb that had just come to the rescue who was just getting used to people and the other animals. She was very curious and bahhed at all the visitors. I could probably spend all day with these animals given the chance. I was glad to hear many of the animals stories of how they came to the rescue even though they were often sad. It’s crazy to think that the animals they have are only just a tiny fraction of the animals that are tortured and slaughtered every day in factory farms. I’m glad there are organizations like Farm Sanctuary that are doing something to help these animals that are thought of merely commodities rather than living beings.


weetzie_4weetzie_3weetzie_1 I can’t believe it’s been a year since we rescued Weetzie Cat. It feels like we’ve had her all along. I can tell she’ll forever be my little baby kitten. It took the better part of the year for all the cats to get adjusted to each other. Mochi still isn’t a fan of Weetzie at all, but usually ignores her unless Weetzie is having too much fun running around the apartment. Weetzie has picked out lots of hiding places where the other cats won’t go so she has her own little territories. Her favorites are on top of the fridge, in the back of one of the kitchen cabinets and her little suitcase bed. She loves that little bed. She sleeps there every night. Sometimes I wish she had a buddy cat to cuddle and play with but I know that wouldn’t go over well with the other lady cats (and 4 cats would officially be a lot of cats).

Weetzie makes me happy every day and I’m so glad we found her and that she’s a part of our lives.

It’s possible that I’m well on my way to being a cat lady. I’ll keep you posted as the situation develops.
