A year of Daily Photos ago: Running A Farm Is Hard Work


  1. Glad to see you call it the "cat cabin" instead of "cat house". Ha Ha Ha!!

  2. Love the cat cabin! Great pictures..They look as if they are greeting the visitors to their home.

  3. On another note, pop over to my site. Donkey Dan's cousin Elmer was a surprise visitor yesterday.

  4. Archie and Sid, the resident felines Chez Toast, have been asking me why they don't have their own summer place too.

    I have explained that J2 and New Cat most likely live fulltime in the cabin. I said they probably don't run the Farmgirl household, attempt to dislodge human guests from their favorite armchairs, and hang out in your bathtub.

    I particularly said that I very much doubted that they remove your underwear from the hamper while you are out, to toss it around and leave it in the living room, in case you should be so foolish as to walk right in your own door with an aquaintance.

    They are unconvinced and believe that the cat cabin is a vacation home, something which they have long deserved, so they can "get away from it all" (i.e. me, I suppose). Could you please explain to my cats that this is a primary residence, and not a second home for your cats? It is...isn't it?

  5. Okay, I am just a sap for things old. The "cat cabin" is a wonderful relic of history. Do you and Joe have plans to level it and preserve it? I was serious when I said you need a small metal detector to uncover "gifts" left behind. I can only imagine what a wonderful collection of objects you would find.

  6. PS..You could photograph the objects and show them to us. Have you found the spots where they burned their trash? Those sites are usually full of clues about the families who have lived there.

  7. I love their cat cabin and they look so comfy in it. It's like their place to hide away from everything else.

  8. I love the look of their little cabin ..... what lucky kitties!!!

  9. Oh, shweet! Those are some cute kitties you have living in the Cat Cabin. My outdoor kitties mostly get under my house in the crawl space. I wonder whether they've noticed that the chicken has a house all to herself. Hmmm.

    FG, do you ever put a heater of any type out there for the cats? Sometimes I bring the outdoor cats into the heated shed if it gets too cold--usually below 15 degrees Fahrenheit.

  10. What a lovely cat cabin! They sure look happy to be there.

  11. Hi Farmgirl,

    Didn't know you were running a cat house... what will the neighbors say!!

    Seriously though, great pictures! Is that Cary grazing again? That girl doesn't stop...

  12. Love all your photos, thanks for sharing :)


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!
