Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

One Year and a Few Days.....
I missed a very important date! Sage is a year old and counting! I'm not sure of course exactly how old he is, but I was going to post his one year anniversary when he came in the house. However I'm way late. So don't tell 'em. Last year on August 29th, Sage officially became a member of the family. You can read about it in earlier posts for September of 2006 if you aren't sure who Sage is. Of course back then he didn't have a name and was often called "Bad Weed".
It's been a year fraught with kitten antics, kitten proofing the house, broken knickknacks and much SAGE NO! However we have survived and actually he has turned out to be a pretty decent fellow. He isn't a cuddle in your arms cat, but loves attention on his own terms. He often seems torn about being the aloof cat or the big attention craving softie. He has learned not to bite (much), to be careful about scratching me (mostly) and also how to run really fast when I yell at him. He still, on occasion, harasses Meshach beyond reason, but it's not nearly the constant meanness of yore. He has two teddy bears (one blue & one brown) that he carries around allot and puts on the bed every night. He and Meshach both keep their noses in my business, and its a rare moment when there isn't two tubby cats trailing around after me.
Sage is closing in on 14 lbs and is a very huge fellow. Now that he has me, I mean I have him, broken in, I wouldn't trade him in for nothing. Although there are still those moments....... ;-0
Happy Anniversary/Birthday Sage Grass Cat!!
Oops, excuse me, gotta run--SAGE GRASS! GET OUT OF THERE!
