It's always exciting to see bears in the wild. And this sighting was for 5!! We saw a mother with 2 cubs and then these 2 adults that were sort of mock wrestling and playing. It was very exciting to watch them and see them engaged in play. The Mother with her babies went into the brush before we got a photo but these to young adults - possibly cubs from a previous year- hung out as we watched from our car. Very exciting!
I really don't know how I get any work accomplished when there are baby goats around. As they cavort on rocks playing king of the castle and learn how to but heads, it is endlessly entertaining. I smile every day when I'm feeding them. One mom, a small pygmy goat needed assistance during birth and permitted us to help. We gently tugged on the baby when she was having contractions. It worked and her babies emerged successfully. She had twins. Another mother successfully gave us triplets... all girls. What a magical experience to watch.
It's never a dull day at the Kitty Hotel. Springtime means new arrivals & births, eggs hatching, coats shedding and seasonal preparation for summer or winter. Fall brings harvest, canning and winter prepration. We are always entertained by our many animal friends.
