Mom is SO mad at me right now. Tonight I started growling ferociously while I was eating my dinner. She went to take it away from me and I grabbed at it while she was picking it up causing food to spill everywhere. She didn’t give me my food back until I sat and calmed down. Then she put it down and still made me sit for a few seconds before I was allowed to eat again! There were too many people and animals near me and I don’t like all that commotion while I’m eating. Mom said she was very disappointed in me. That’s the worst…

After taking care of me, she went outside to check on the chickens, ducks, and rabbits. It’s been in the upper 40s all day and it’s expected to be in the low 20s tonight. For most of you, that’s practically summer weather right about now but for us Floridians, it’s arctic. Anywho, Mom noticed that Bare-Butt, our Rhode Island Red, wasn’t looking really good. She was all puffed up and her comb was more of a purple color than red. Mom went into the chicken pen, picked her up, and noticed that she has lost some weight and her crop wasn’t very full. So, Mom put her in the doorway of the heated coop. Bare-Butt didn’t move an inch. Mom went back into the chicken pen and realized that Bare-Butt sounded a bit congested. She might have some type of respiratory issue going on. Mom and Dad decided she needed to be brought into our house with the heat on for the night. Well, I used this opportunity to display my not-so-cute-and-perfect side again. I growled at Bare-Butt and scared her. Again, Mom told me that I was bad and she was very upset with me.

I heard Mom telling Dad that when they take Khia and me to the vet tomorrow for our shots that she’s going to talk to the doctor about my change in behavior.

Luckily, I have tomorrow evening to look forward to. I will be having my first ever Skype and it’s going to be with my Lexi. It’s been almost a week since our Valentine’s Day date and I just want to see her again already. I really like her. Did you all know that she’s an acclaimed actress? Yep! She’s the bees knees 😀 ❤

Well, I’m off to go try to make amends with Mom. Wish me luck!

  7. Hi Noodle – I’m happy that you and Lexi are hitting it off ❤ I understand how aggravating it can be to have too much commotion around dinner time. I get grumpy too when any animals come too close to my dish. I hope you can help your mom to understand what it's like for you. ~ BH

  10. Gosh…..sounds like a stressful day! I don’t like anyone around me when I’m eating and HATE a lot of noise any time but especially then. Hope that the trip to the Vet goes well…..I think you’re just going through a grumpy patch. Hey – we all do that (humans do it all the time!!!!).

    Hugs, sammy

  15. I hope everything is okay with you and the chicken, Noodle. Perhaps the unseasonable weather just has you out of sorts.

  16. Yo Noodle, we all have ‘off’ days. Hopefully that’s all that’s going on. Between you and me, sometimes chickens creep me out too but I don’t growl at them. 😉 I think I’m just afraid of them since that time they chased me when I had a pail of grain for the horses. Nothing like flapping, screeching crazed chickens going after you to make you afraid of them.

    • I like chasing them because they make such silly noises when I do it! I can imagine how scared you were. 2 of our ducks chase me and 1 has actually bit me before. I’ll never admit that I deserved it…

    • When Mya is here on the weekends, I have to eat in the room. That was the problem. She was here and Dad put my food in the normal place, not the room. Mom gets even more upset that it happens when Mya’s here because she’s never stolen my food – I’ve stolen hers! Chicken dinner….I don’t think I want to eat them because they make eggs and eggs are my favorite. They also make my 2nd favorite – chicken poop!

      Lexi had to wash her hair?!?!? She called me on the phone but said we had to reschedule the Skype. I’m glad I listened to you little friend. You’re very smart! ❤ ❤ ❤
