When our guests come and stay I always mention our colony of feral cats. Not everyone has the pleasure of meeting our fur babies, but even if you dont see them - we know they are there. The pictures above are of the two latest additions to the feral colony. These two are obviously related to the other group that is living here, as they are marked similarly to the others. The only other feral is Kitty who has been here for at least the past 7 years, and she is ginger and fluffy, so probably not related to these youngsters. My husband thinks I am a crazy cat lady for sure,but I only feed them a little and leave them water in this heat. They do a great job in fending for themselves and keeping the rodent population at bay. In the autumn when there are fewer guest about I will attempt to catch these again, with my humane trap so we can get them neutered and released back into the wild again.
Amazing weather for the past few weeks and more to come. Temperatures have been up in the high twenties with lovely hot sunshine and blue skies almost every day!! The early summer has been wonderful after all the snow and rain over the winter. Its very hard to recall how deep the snow had been when looking at todays scene at the yurt camp. There is still time to book your glamping break over the school holidays and we have plenty of availability towards the end of August so if you would like to see our clear dark skies and experience sleeping in an authentic yurt or shepherds hut then give me a call.
