As mentioned previously Hecate and her kits come out during daylight now. One aspect of this is that I get to spend more time with them.
Learning their names, for example.
Although this year’s kits seem much more interested in food than saying hello.
Kits these days.
But one young fellow, Mason, has shared his name.
A few years back one of the neighborhood (human) children asked me how I knew the animals’ names.
“I asked you your name, didn’t I?”
“Well, shouldn’t I show them the same respect?”
But they can’t tell you.
“Of course they can. You just have to be willing to listen.”
