One of our enclosed cat houses

When we bought this house the plus was all the outdoor buildings that were here, our first priorty was to enclose the buildings so the cats could go outside and be safe from predators. Hubby took a old car port parts and put them together to the other buildings and put chicken wire to the sides and the top , no predators or cats can get out or in, the building to the left was a old chicken coop that he remodled inside and the shop has a section that was also enclosed so that the cats have a place in both buildings to hang out in
 here is Ben enjoying the grass, he is not crazy about too much humane contact, which this is one of the cat houses that the cats are in, or they have behavior issues
 Here is part of the walk way to the chicken coop were they can go in, with dirt to roll in and well yes they like to use it to potty in as well, It gets cleaned several times a week.
 Here is the inside of the chicken coop that he put sheet rock up plastered and painted, the holes are were the chicken layed there eggs, all remodefied with insallation for the cats to be warm in
 I got this kid bed at a garage sale for $5 bucks they like to lay in it

More of our deer

The first photo is of Scarfaces 2 babies one was the little buck that was killed by the coyotes
 This is Baby that is what i call her, she broke her leg from getting caught in a fence, it is looking so much better and is almost able to walk on it, I worry about her when  she doesnt show up but sometimes she goes with mom now that she can walk better, Hung close by
 you can see the swollen front leg here, but she uses it now
 So here are a few of our bucks that come for breakfast and dinner, i have about 6 to 7 show up daily yes he is on my deck,
 Isnt those horns handsome looking?

 This is purple tag, have not figured out why he was tagged but i am assuming he had an injury at one time and they fixed him up and then tagged him, there is a doe that they call 22 because she too has a tag and was rescued from a bucket around her neck, she was here when it was mating season along with purple tag, but since then i have not seen them back here
 So the does have been coming after the bucks get here, i guess the figured out that there will be food waiting for them if they wait, The bucks are very aggressive towards them when it comes to food, i have about 20 deer that show up

the love of our deer family

Since moving into our new home one of the joys we have are seeing the deer on a daily basis, I have been feeding them and a few are friendly enough that they will allow me to hand feed themThis is Velvet i think that he is a older buck but one of his issues is that he still has velvet on his horns, when he first showed up here he was very sick, could hardly walk a few steps without coughing so hard, his eyes were also very weepy all green and almost closing his eyes, I started him on antiobiotics in his water and Lysine in his food, it took about a month but he is much better now,
 This is Scarface, i call her that because she has a scar down her face, she has two babies a little buck and a little girl i call Baby, her little buck got hit by a car and his back leg and hip was damaged, he dragged his leg, coyotes got him here on my property, it was so sad,
