After setting out food and warm water for the outside cats, I noticed a little face peeking at me from under the kibble house. It wasn't until I uploaded the photo that I saw there were three cats under there! It's a bit tight, but squeezing under there is a favourite spot for the smaller … Continue reading I see you…
Well, we're at the end of the year, and I thought it would be a good time to look back and see how things have been on the blog. I'm actually going to do two "top 10" lists.

I waited until things got warmer than -30C/-22F before starting my morning rounds. I guess the deer got tired of waiting for me, because I found them exploring! I managed to get a picture through the windows of the front doors. They seem very interested in the kibble tray under the shrine! 😀 When I … Continue reading Morning surprise

This was about half an hour before I got outside; -33C/-27F with a wind chill of -37C/-35F! I'd topped up their food last night, so I knew there would still be … Continue reading Just a bit chilly out there… !!!
I was going to make a quick run into town this afternoon, when things were supposed to warm up a few degrees. While doing my morning rounds, however, I decided to head out right away, while the snow was still light and fluffy, and wouldn't be too much trouble to drive in. I counted 18 … Continue reading A quick run
I'm feeling very fortunate right now! For ourselves and for the critters. When I checked the weather first thing this morning, my app's weather radar was showing us well under an area of snowfall, and yet when I looked out my window, there was none coming down! We did have some during the night, and … Continue reading Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Of course, we're into the 12 days of Christmas, now, so we'll be celebrating until the Feast of the Epiphany, aka: Three King's Day, on Jan. 6. 🙂 Even the kitties get to celebrate with special treats from the kitchen. I've got more in the fridge waiting for them, too. 🙂 We did our big … Continue reading Still celebrating!
