Boris is now full grown but this is his puppy pic. He found out he was different when he discovered he has a ding a ling. The girl dogs roughed him up. This around 3 years ago.

Full disclosure: A crappy pic from a crappy point and click taken through the back window. So as not wake up the red fox who had a habit of catching some ZZZs in my back yard for a couple seasons. Didn't even notice the wood pecker lurking in the shadow vandalizing my suet feeder. I wound up having to patch both sides of that box.

Six weeks! Hello, little Harry!
Harry maxed out at 13lbs. Not fat, but stocky. We called him our little Stutz Bear Cat. Sometimes; mostly it was Butthead. We had him for nearly 18 years, and loved every minute.

Love the accidental photobomb! I caught a bobcat running through my pasture last week, but was only able to get a pic of his tail and hind legs as he (or she) ducked under a fence

Last Sunday woke up three deer that were napping alongside the driveway. Little Bucky moseyed over to see what was happening near the bird feeders.



Two weeks ago I found a fawn sleeping in the daffodils in the front yard:

That pic was taken sometime in the late '90s. Fox pretty much gone now due to unfettered development.

I'd put some land mines around the food bowl. Make it like a corporate job.

I would end up stepping on one. The outside cats set many land mines my feet always find. Stinks!

Yeah, that was in 2017 when a bridge had washed out on Highway 1 in Big Sur. The road was closed to through-traffic, which made for ideal biking conditions, as well as condor conditions. I used the digital zoom on my lower-end iPhone, rather than get too close, which is why it looks like it does.

I did not realize he was a victim of chick abuse. It is a good story.

This cat lived with a hoarder and was neglected. She kept escaping and preferred to be stray. Now she lives next door with four of her kittens. Two are moving in with me.

And my buddy curled up with me after I returned home from a four-day tour over Easter weekend. He was happy I was home.

Bring beer and something to smoke on the smoker.
