Weekend Cat Blogging #29

Now There's A Switch--Usually The Cat Watches The Birds

Yes, those are Joe's (now infamous) 'thrifty' egg layers keeping an eye on Patchy Cat. And yes, they laid two more eggs yesterday. Two. That makes five in less than a week (after months of nothing--which is what my two chickens are still laying). Oh, the humiliation. Oh, the fabulous Christmas breakfast Joe has planned for himself and those eggs. But that's okay. I'm having scones (made with eggs I had to buy).

Attention Cat Lovers! This Is Weekend Cat Blogging #29!
Visit my pal Clare & her beloved cat Kiri at
Eat Stuff in Australia for all the links to this week's kitties--and to see why this is Clare's very best Christmas ever.


  1. Thankyou sooo much sweetie!!!!


  2. Merry Christmas to Susan, your family and all the animals on the farm!

  3. I am so happy for Clare. I kept checking back, just hoping! Thanks again for the inspiration for the lentil soup recipe. For Christmas I gave all my siblings (nine of them!) lentils and smoked paprika in their packages.

    Hope you have a really great Christmas.

  4. Hey hey... Pree kitty! Looks like my bandit kitty.

    I gotta get my WCB done too!

    Happy Day!

  5. I say put a big ol' barbeque grill in front of them and see if that incents them a little more! =:o

    OOoo, I am going to get hate-mail from lindy (the chicken) for that one....

    Merry Christmas, Susan! Thank you for providing such a fantastic blog and a little glimpse into life on the farm. It's been such fun, and we really appreciate all the work you put into it :)

  6. Your kitty is totally ruling the roost! Don't worry, your hens will lay, they must be late bloomers:D

  7. Jeff, Jeff, Jeff.
    Tasteless, Jeff. Kind of like those el-cheapo "thrifty" eggs.

  8. Those chickens of yours are outta control. A merry christmas to you, and yours-2 legged, 4 legged and, of course, winged.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
