tuxcat lol, yeah i forgot 300km radius is actually a fair distance, regional nsw, middle of nowhere, but i like that. My mum will come and feed the cats each day but im already worried about them. I give them little pep talks about not playing on the road and making sure they stay safe while we're away.
You should record a pep talk and get your Mum to play it to them each day when she feeds them.
I bought a feeder for my cat and you can record messages on it. It's set on a timer so when it feeds him it plays the message. I had to turn it off though as the dogs cottoned onto it and were out scoffing the food before it even hit the bowl. While the cat just kept sleeping.
It's a good idea in theory if you don't have greedy dogs.
@Sue77 yes i can understand about it being hard to work with the little ones. I remember someone on this thread (ive forgotten who soz) was a nurse in a maternity ward and one of my embryologists was doing ivf herself. I cant imagine how hard that would be. To be honest, i think that being a teacher in the same school for 10 years in a small town/ its the only high school in our town, has probably given me really valuable observations and insights into the similarities and surprising differences between parents and siblings. So i see whole families come through the school. I only just realised in other occupations, its probably rare to be constantly meeting members of the same families and getting to know them over 6 years. As much as i want to do the mum thing, teaching does allow you to be an important person in childrend lives, so although its not the same, its probably the next best thing in a way. Teenagers also much easier than little ones or babies. Dont think i could work in a day care.
Regarding your donors height and weight, i guess you cant tell how that will work out sometimes people have family traits that they dont show themselves, so you won't know until bubba was all grown up anyway and by that time, i reckon youd be head over heels in love anyway xox
