The little cats have discovered that milking time means free hot milk.
So now there is a full crew of cats perched on beams and doors and gates all over the barn, waiting patiently for the pump to turn off when they silently converge on the milking room.
Guess what Aunty is up to? I will call her so you can see for yourself.
Aunty!? Where are you Aunty Del?
There you are, Aunty. What is going on with you Aunty. You have been behaving differently lately. Though I can’t quite put my finger on it until I saw this.
Hmm. Are you pregnant Aunty? I think maybe you might be.
Do you see dear reader? Her udder is dropping and one side of her belly is dropping too. Though she did not look pregnant last week – Carlos’s babies are so small I have had very little warning of any of them. And Aunty had a very small udder last time too.
If Del were pregnant I would be very, very surprised as I was sure she came into heat when we first brought her back from the other side. What do you think? That looked like a little udder filling up to me.
I have no intention of milking through the winter though, I am not even here at Christmas time, so if she does have a baby she can raise him herself without me milking her as well. Let’s hope her udder stays nice and small and this stays an option.
There now. That certainly was a bit of a surprise. Though I cannot bring myself to believe it. I will bring her into a field closer to the action today so I can keep an eye on her.
I hope you have a lovely day.
