The mamas are regularly out in full force in the mornings.
I’ve taken to leaving small amounts of kibble on the cat’s house roof, too. Because skunks can’t climb.
No sign of kittens today, yet.
We’ll have to remember to switch out the frozen water bottles in their bowls several times today. It’s supposed to get quite hot.
Not this hot! This is what the bean tunnel thermometer was reading at about 10:30am. Our high of the day is expected to be 26C/79F, and it’s already 24C/75F as I write this. The weather app says the “feels like” reading is the same but, clearly, it feels a lot hotter while in direct sunlight!
It looks like all of our male cats have disappeared. The only ones left are Sad Face and The Distinguished Guest – and they hate each other and often fight, so they tend not to be around at the same time.
Speaking of fighting, I heard some snarling outside the living room window last night. I headed out with a flashlight, and a huge racoon was near the window, snarling and warning me off. It ran off, then back again, then snarled in a different direction, which is when I saw the second, smaller racoon at the feeding station.
I left them be.
