What a beautiful day today! The weather app tells me it's -25C/-13F, with a wind chill of -36C/-33F right now, but it's bright and sunny, and actually felt a lot warmer while we were out this morning. While doing my rounds this morning, it was time to assess just how much the storm affected us. … Continue reading Digging our way out (and a Cabbages update)
After a brief and sunny respite, it looks like the storm has finally hit us for real. Temperatures have dropped to -21C/-6F, with a wind chill of -35C/-31F - and this time, we don't look at all sheltered from it, from what I'm seeing on the live feed of the garage cam! It's supposed to … Continue reading A Cabbages update
First up, I'm happy to say that Cabbages is seeming better this morning. She got more hydration last night, and we even got some solid food into her - also through the syringe. She didn't like it, but she ate it! We are still keeping Turmeric closed up with me. I've been letting other cats … Continue reading Morning critters
We are having another mild and foggy day, and the kitties were out in full force! I think I counted 19 in total, out of the 20 that are now regulars. I even got to pet the Distinguished Guest again. Earlier, before I headed outside, I spotted her by the bird feeder. The suet cage … Continue reading Enjoy it while it lasts!
I had to dash outside to do a meter reading, and the boys dutifully and adorably posed for me! Aren't they sweet? Doesn't Tuxedo Mask's eye look great? It's his left eye that was affected. That, however, is not my news. I finally got a call back from our vandal's lawyer. He was quite apologetic … Continue reading Some news
I'm happy to say that Tuxedo Mask is looking so much better! This has become his favourite spot, under the ceramic heat bulb. Unfortunately, he's still not using the litter. My daughter took a look this morning, and it seems he's just going on the concrete beside the litter box. *sigh* At least the room … Continue reading Getting better
When I do my morning rounds, I'm in and out of the sun room quite a bit. We didn't want to take a chance of Tuxedo Mask dashing outside. Every time one of us used the bathroom, we could hear him through the window, crying to get outside! So my younger daughter took on Tuxedo … Continue reading Morning update
We had some maintenance related issues that prevented me from posting an update as soon as we got home, so I figured I'd just cut to the chase with the title! We were not able to catch Broccoli, though. She and Caramel just did not want to leave the cat's house, even when I started … Continue reading Tuxedo Mask is okay!
Oh, we had a snuggly boy this morning! The snuggles were after he aggressively attacked both my feet through the covers! 😀 But how could anyone be upset about potentially bleeding toes, when THIS face is looking at you? Aaawwww.... *melt* The Re-Farmer
I missed my morning ginger cuddles, but that's okay. He got other cuddles! That's Keith on the left, and Cheddar at the top. Cheddar is the one that came indoors after we found him walking strangely, and could feel what we at first thought was a dislocated rib. It turned out he had somehow impaled … Continue reading Ginger and the orange boys
