Life in The Crags with our animals....sometimes can be very sad

We thought we would like to post a tribute to all our past and present cats and dogs. We cannot live without any of them and we have to learn to say goodbye and make decisions that are not always very easy!!
Sadly a week ago our four year old cat Sammy disappeared, we hope and pray that he will return but the chances are very slim. We live surrounded by forests, a beautiful but sometimes treacherous place, where there have been many sightings of Leopards and Caracal.......Sammy loved living here and we gave him his freedom, we decided that if we locked him up it would take away his spirit!

This is  Mouse cat, she came with us from Johannesburg but is no longer with us, we had to have her put down along with our dogs Emma and Mimma, the worst thing that any pet owner has to do ever! Our Johannesburg babies adapted very quickly to life with us in Paradise... We will miss them forever

life is a beach...

From time to time we all have to face up to sadness and tradgedies.....and realize how lucky we are to have the life we have....
inspiration from our forest

a normal morning...Jess, Margaret and frizby
A day in the lives of treehousearts is starts with a walk/run on the beach with our dogs...with such a start we are energised for the rest of the day to create our masterpieces surrounded by our forest and birds....disturbed very often by baboons!
