Have you ever looked at something so long you can't tell what's real and what's not? That is what is happening to Semi-Sweet. If she is bred she is due starting yesterday. Since I haven't been able to tell, the goatfarmer came out to take a look. After some prodding and poking, she was a bit optimistic. But would really only give her a 50/50 chance. I don't like them odds!
But....last night I was watching her once again, when she, I swear, looked like she was going into labor. I swear.
So I took a chair and sat it in front of her stall watching her, once again, by the light of my lantern. The cats kept me company while I tried not to think about vampires. Twilight...get it?
She, I swear, acted like she might kid last night but after she fell sound asleep I went back home knowing that for sure there would be a kid in the stall the next morning.
I got up when Hubby did at 5:30 and raced down to see if anything had happened during the night....while I didn't sleep.....and tossed and turned.
As I walked up to Semi-Sweet's stall and looked inside, I jumped, there was a small figure under her belly.
It was the cat.
