"Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild"...




Thursday

Landscaping with fire, and cat naming.

Hey!


This Kitty here now has a name!

Our Tomaz tomcat is in love.  
He not only looks for her with that "whereareyou MEE-OOW",
but he shares his food bowl with her.

Even though she has her own bowl.

Yep. true sign when a man is in love.






AND We have been too busy of late! 

ALL the trees are being cut down.

and burned. 

Weve been burning everywhere.

Fire therapy.



most if not all the trees near the house are dead from the 2012 wildfire.



We need to remove them, and get rid of the fuel (branches) left behind on the ground.

With the late winter we had, its been easy to do.

Dont want another burn like the burn we had that burned!

?

Dont worry, i think i know what i meant...

maybe.


So EVERYTHING is getting cut.

This tree here was over a 100 years old.

Now its going to be 

a big log

in a bunkhouse!

If we dont die first!

HAHAHAHA

just joking. really.

*cough*



we have a lot of logs ahead of us.

this is no mamby pamby job.




and a lot of bare landscaping to do.

With rocks.

Because rocks are free!

And 
they dont cost anything!

?

Dont worry, i got this covered...




And

When  everything is burned up, it certainly makes conceptual planning easier!

And

If your house is going to look like brick fortress/prison on the hill,
may as well go with the affect!

 Who knows?
we might start a trend...



So we have been working hard around here.




*cough* reaaaal hard.



Oh? and her name?

Cats got my writers tongue, 
but we are working on her blogpost.

Because all girl kitties that Tomaz is in love with 
have to have
their own post, 

of course!

;)

  3. GW Feral Woman,

    You have your work cut out for you with all those trees. I so understand why your cutting them down and way from the house.
    They will make for a great bunkhouse.

    Rocks and rod iron makes for a great looking compound :-)

    Tomaz is a cutie!!!!

    Enjoy those dogs and beers, you've worked hard.

  7. Love this happy post! Silly me for thinking you would tell us miss Kitty's name at the end of the post......
    I like the photo with the horses and their shelter in it- very nice shelter! It's considerate of them to supervise.

  10. When the Teton Dam melted and hosed our whole valley with mud and debris, the children of the community spent the rest of the summer playing in ditches and gutters building dams and watching them wash away. I think facing scary-horrific experiences in small controlled doses is good therapy. I'm so SO sorry your beautiful trees are gone, but seeing those charcoal stumps burn away must feel pretty good. So....what did you say you named your kitty?

  11. Such a stinker, not telling us the kitty's name. Glad you are getting done what needs to be done to make a fresh start!

  12. OMG, that parting shot is priceless!! I know its necessary to remove those trees, but your house will be so lonely up there by itself.

  13. Every morning, before I let Samson outside, he stops in the hallway and stretches. When he's done, I grab his face and kiss his furry forehead. I will rub noses tomorrow and we will dedicate our nose rub to Dexter Dog.

    I am so glad that Tomaz has a new love. She is a beauty and I think they will be very happy together. And I read on another blog that Frostig is beginning to believe that he has a forever home. I just hate the way horses get shuffled around. I know sometimes it is inevitable, but I still don't like it.

    It is so sad also about the trees, but sometimes life gives us little choice. I am so glad you survived, you and Mr. Forestman. and that you saved Tomaz's life. Seeing that cat now, in love, is priceless.

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
