Our Happy cat is starting to show her age a little. She went for a walk with us in the yard the other day and as we were coming back to the patio she kept laying down like she was tired. She does not walk with us every day. Only about every third day so being 15 or 16 or 17 years old she has a right to be getting tired. Happy does a lot of sleeping. Probably 21 hours a day. She is always a wake for dinner. She does not eat our food she just likes to sit with us in the kitchen, keeping us company. Than she has her trips out to tend to herself. That is her day every day.

Below is Jake, he is about 6 months old. I see him everyday rain or shine. He will spend his life out back, probably~~ Unless he has trouble finding she's to mate with. Coons do not inbreed.

When it is mating time he and his sister will be bitter enemies. They will be close until mating time, than from that time on they will avoid each other for the rest of there life.

I think Jake is going to be small. For a while he and his sister Jackie were the same size. Now Jackie is almost two times bigger than Jake. Jake eats two times more than Jackie does and she is so much bigger!!!

Below is my sweet Bambi.... She is 12 years old last month in case you missed that post.
She is due for her rabies shot. She has not had one for 4 years. The last time she had her rabies shot

she was throwing up for a month!!!!!!!!!!! Where the needle went in she got a bump the size of

a golf ball. The vet said she had had such a bad reaction last time she could go 4 years without a shot. Now it is time. Tom looked it up on the computer and I advice everyone to do the same.

That shot should never be given with any other!!! Any other shot should be given at least a month before or at least a month after that rabies shot. Please look it up!!!! All pet owners should know the facts!!!

I really hope that I have helped some animals with this post. That rabies shot can kill your pet!

I love all the animals so much I don't want any to go through what Bambi went through!!!

Love you all, Happy, Bambi and Fern


  1. Hi Fern,

    Thanks for sharing your animals with us. We learned new things today about raccoons.

    Hugs to you and your babies.

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

  2. Yuh, we get our shots one at a time too. I sure hope the rabies goes well this time.

    Hey, nothing wrong with sleeping 21 hours / day. I've been doing just about that my whole life.


  3. I hope the shot goes better this time, that must have been scary.. I didn't know that about raccoons. Thanks for sharing.. How nice that kitty gets to walk with you too... Hugs GJ x

  4. Hopefully the shot will go better this time,

    The coon looks cute as long as I dont have to see it in person.

    Have a good day


  5. Coons are pretty smart huh???

    I've heard many mixed opinions about the rabies shot...hope all goes well!

  6. Hi Fern,
    I'm sorry to hear Bambi had such a time with her last Rabies shot. I hope all goes well this time.

  7. Hi Fern

    Thanks for checking up with me. I had a cold, then I felt better and spent the whole weekend doing fun things. Two days at an event called Equine Affaire, which is a horse exhibit and trade show, so got my horse fix in, and got to spend 2 days with my Mom, who is one of my best friends. Then Sunday was my quilt guild's monthly meeting and we had a really good speaker. Unfortunately, Warren, my husband came down with an awful flu Saturday and I am 2 days behind him. Yuck.

    I think Happy cat has earned the right to sleep as much as she wants, and she sounds happy. I hope Ferns rabies shot goes well this time.

  8. Napping is a good warmup for a good night's sleep!

    Hope the shot went well...


  9. When I was about 13 years old, I read the book and saw the movie, Rascal. I use to want a coon after that. I never did get one but got to meet two baby raccoons at a lake where some people lived. I got to pet them and touch the soft pads on their paws. I thought that was way cool! :)
