Hello and welcome back for another post in my Pin Away Wednesdays series! With all the negativity in the world, I thought it would be a perfect time to spread some extra positivity here on the blog. Today I am sharing some of my favorite photos from my Awesome Animals and Wildlife Pinterest board. Get ready for some cuteness overload!
Okay what’s not to love here???? I can’t even take it! Too adorable!
I had to look twice to decide whether this was a real dog or a Boyd’s teddy bear. Oh how snuggable!
Animals have such amazing expressions. Sometimes you can just see their “wheels turning.” They sure know how to “work over” their humans with their eyes!

As a Kentucky girl, I was born with a love of horses. They are so majestic!
We have many beautiful birds in Kentucky. The cardinal our state bird. The red cardinal is the male, but I think the femals are so pretty too.
Both the males and females have been abundant in our garden this spring!
We have severals owls around our home, but I doubt I will ever see one like this! (I am pretty shure that this “exotic rare bird” is fake news, folks! But it’s still very pretty anyway!)

The Barred Owl is the species that lives in our neighborhood.
Baby deer and their parents are also common visitors around our home. I love to watch them in the forest across the street, but we have treated our yard with natural deer and tick repellent. I have also planted lots of deer resistant plants and shrubs.
The squirrels are more active than ever right now, thanks to less traffic in our neighborhood. There is a rare blonde squirrel that lives in the forest across the street that we have been watching for a couple of years. Upon doing research I found that squirrels can live from 10-20 years, so I hope we have many more years of enjoying its antics!

One day I would love to have a country house with several varieties of wild birds, chickens, and ducks.

For now I will be satisfied to see more birds, butterflies and bees in our garden.
Just this week we saw our first hummingbird!
As a child I lived in a rural area with lots of turtles and frogs. I would catch them to keep as temporary pets for a day or two, and then lovingly release them back out into the wild.
Having quite a bit of Scottish ancestry and naturally wild hair, I feel a kindred connection with highland cattle.
I know that we are all praying that life gets back to normal soon and that we all can travel again safely. Next year my husband and I are planning a 20th anniversary trip to the Scottish highlands! I can’t wait to see the majestic wildlife!
Now more than ever we can count on animals to comfort us and make us smile. Even if you don’t have a pet, you can find joy in watching the wildlife around your home.
Sending virtual hugs and prayers of protection your way my friends! And remember…
“Don’t worry, be happy!”
Psalm 4:8~I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, LORD, only make me dwell in safety.
