On Patrol

It sure is feeling like summertime down here in the south.
Hot, sunny days and those pesky mosquitos and ticks are back.
Yesterday a new baby fawn was born, I'm certain the mother was one of the twin deer born here herself last spring.




There's been a fox sighting over the past three weeks, Oliver is keeping vigil.

I know we have fox in the area, but have rarely sighted one. I've seen several in the city which shocks me that they don't get run over. I fear it is going to be a bad year for ticks and mosquitos.

I think this is the only thing I will miss about not living in that house in the country in NY State. My deer.
In winter I put things out for them, when the snow was just so high.
I worried and watched for the tiny fawns who came through the yard, crossed the road and went to the bog and gardens across the street. No one ever went slowly .. the speed limit was 35 mph, the average car/truck went around 50-60 mph ... I wanted to throw things in the road and give the speeders flat tires lol
In the time I was in that house, in those gardens, I never got a tick on me ... phew !! I hate those things !

I would enjoy deer until I had them eating things that I didn't want them to eat. We are gong to move into the heat for a while.

They are so pretty! Thanks for sharing the fawns with me. And Oliver, of course. :-)

Oliver is a good watch cat! our Blackie was our protector from
deer and other wild things when we lived in Texas. When we moved to the city he didn't like that much, could only protect us from other cats then.

Jo, I do not think any other orange cat could look as good as Oliver. He's the prettiest cat. I love all the sweet little animals if they stay pout of the flowers and gardens. LOL. Oh yes, we are to be burning up this weekend too. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Nothing speaks more of summer than fawns. Do keep Oliver safe indoors
