Hi All, We are a newly retired couple, we own 3 acres just south of Greytown. We have a cat that loves to catch, kill and eat rabbits, are planting a small native forest and have planted an orchard, we are loving our new lifestyle.
Cheers Sheryal and Glenn Todd

Hi and welcome to lsb B)

Well done on planting your orchard so early. We've only just got ours going after ten years!

Welcome :-). Cats like that are great .... except when they bring the first kit in alive at 10 pm, and the next at 11 pm, and the next at midnight, and the next ....

Welcome and good to hear you’re enjoying living on your lifestyle block, you probably won’t want to leave like me.
Cats.
They cannot be relied upon for pest control, but they have their place in the home (and lifestyle block) if you love animals.
I will never forget it, because it was extraordinary (like the cat) and it happened on my birthday. The cat (pictured left) brought the same rabbit into the bedroom five times in one night after he who will remain nameless kept putting them both out and didn’t think to lock the cat door any of those times and I couldn’t be bothered either.
I’m not replacing the cat when it dies (or the husband for that matter, should either pre-decease me).

Welcome aboard LSB. I joined recently & like being apart of LSB. Im an Ex Farmer & enjoy reading threads on here. I am now a private rubbish contractor & look after Rubbish Bins at 2 Shopping Complexes here in Rotorua City. I empty them twice a day everyday but miss some aspects of farnming like moving stock & working my dogs. I had to give it up for a variety of reasons & health too which has now improved no end.
