Sheep, kitties, and pumps, oh my!

Baaaa. I'm feeling sheepish. :o)

So, Brad came home for his birthday. We are soooo glad to see him again. We feel almost spoiled seeing him again when he was just here for Easter. We love having him home! First thing Saturday morning we went to check out the sump pump for the backyard. After much digging and wire testing, it was discovered that, drum roll please, the wire had come unplugged underground. Baaaaa. Granted, it is the most basic and easy thing to say, "Are you sure it is plugged in?" But in my defense, it was a buried wire. So, yeah. Plugged it in and that puppy started pumping water like no one's business. Speaking of puppies....

Or kitties actually. I listed them on Craigslist tonight and I already have them spoken for. Did you know that PETA includes a message on CL about listing animals as 'free to a good home'? Apparently people look for ads that say 'free to a good home' to find animals to maim. Sick, huh. But you can't list animals as 'for sale' on CL either. You can ask for a nominal "relocation fee" though. Crazy world we are living in people. Now we just have to figure out how to catch the kitties. And perhaps call the Humane Society to come and get the mama. Oh, and Brad took the honor of naming the black one. He named it Trespasser. Can you tell he is a cat lover? You're right. He isn't.

Brad cut the boys' hair and even gave SugarPea a trim. Pictures will be coming. Eventually. :o)

So glad he was able to come home to you guys. And so glad the sump pump was an easy fix.

I love Trespasser. Perfect. :)

Yay! I'm glad all the kitties will have homes. I hope the mamma can find a home too.
