The chicken feed shuffle

Cat's out of the bag
We've carried in 50 pound bags of chicken feed before, but it's a struggle during the muddy season and hard on the back.

The new method is to transfer 15 to 20 pounds in a smaller cat food bag so it can fit in a medium sized back pack.

Having both hands free is an advantage when trying to balance on the stepping stones while crossing the creek.

Yes.....we have one of those cats(Huckleberry) who will only eat a certain type of cat food(Surf-N-Turfin). He's very vocal when it comes to his dinner and usually gets what he wants.
