Molly has really grown and is just as big as Sara (the Border Collie) now.
She doesn't have the herding skills that Sara has but she is very determined to bother anyone or anything that is moving out in the yard area. Today a guinea keet somehow found itself free of the brooder and before I could stop her Molly had it pinned down between her paws. I thought the keet was a goner for sure, but neither Molly nor I expected one of the adult guinea males to respond to the keets warning cries. I watched in awe as the male actually flew over to the rescue and then pecked and chased Molly away to the deck!
Sara could only look on in shame, "What will all the other dogs think?"
It didn't phase Molly at all because shortly thereafter she was out in the yard hounding after the adult guineas, who ran off as they always do (except when they are apparently rescuing some of their own).
"Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the best pest control of them all?"
After a hard day of causing mischief Molly likes to collapse on the couch to catch a few winks...thereby causing more mischief as you see she isn't supposed to be up on the furniture!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
