Our new Virginia Quail

We have a new member in our "factory". It's a nestling of Virginia Quail. My husband dreamed to by them for much time, and we have 7 qualis now. So, he decided to buy this species of quail, too. There are not many amateurs of the not factory birds here but some "mad" men have them for fun,too. My husband found 2 of them in our region. One wil have the little birds to sell in December, other said we can come to take them.

We had to travel long enough till that factory. The man has all species of birds for the factory. But he has some species for hunting. And he really had some nestlings. We did not see that they were too little. And one of them was dead. Unfortunatelly. The other is in the incubator and seems to feel good. Here is our Virginia Quail

Biondo and Lithops

I had a very important day yesterday: my Lithops decided to flower after I don't know how much time it was without any sign of life. When I noticed that there was a flower, the sun was just away from my yard and there was only a little piece of lighted surface. I put the lithops in that part of the yard and ... Miracle 'the plant opened the flower once more.

At that time, Biondo comes in the yard to see if I took something good for him. He became terrible, you know. He cryes and cryes under the door till we give him something to keep him silent. And we need a factory of sausages to fill his stomach...

A New Cat in Our Yard

After the death of all the adult cats in our zone (Kotik and his rival -about a month later), the life of the females was calm this summer. I don't see them and do not know if they are alive else but I see their kittens -we have different young cats, some of them surely are the kittens of Kotik. But Basja does not allow any cat come here.

About a month ago one of them, a young cat, come in our yard half dead from hunger. My husband was in the hospital, and I gave the dieing animal to eat -thinking about my husband. Maybe you will think that I'm superstitious, but I could not see a sentient being die when my husband was in the dangerous situation, too.
I called him Biondo (Blond -Italians call one other sometimes this way) because Kotik was black 'and this son of the rival is some white.
Well, this sentient being become too insolent with time. He comes 3 times a day to request food now. Look at these photos:


Biondo is not only insolent. He became to hit Basja. Basja accepted him in the yard. It seems, she knows him. I think, he has  less than 12 month. If he will survive, he will become a king next year since there are not adult cats more. If he will survive. Because my husband said, he will burry him because he hits his beloved Basja.
