Do I spoil them?
Some say that I spoil my animals, particularly those called livestock, the goats and chickens.
They have shelter and food and water, affection when wanted, vet-care when needed and an appropriate environment.
I call it good care and my responsibility.
Dogs and cats get the same treatment, and a bit of discipline when called for.
Dog has her own sleeping quarters, outside, for the night and she likes it that way, cats have an option: either in or out and prefer in and on my bed.
Is that spoiling/ I think not.
