We are still in a polar vortex induced cold spell right now. I delayed doing my rounds outside until it had warmed up to -32C/-25.6F I skipped switching out the memory cards in the trail cams again! Just the extra time to refill both bird feeders this morning was pushing it. The heated water bowl … Continue reading Iced
Ah, how looks can be deceiving! Outside my window, the sky is clear, the sun shines brightly, and not a twig or branch in my view is moving from anything other than birds landing on them. As I write this, our temperature has warmed up to -24C/-11.2F, with a wind chill of -34C/-29.2F When I … Continue reading A good day for a hot cup of tea!
We've had ourselves a chillier morning today! Light snow, and bitterly cold winds from the south is what greeted me this morning, when I went out to do my rounds. Kitty loaf is not impressed. It does look pretty, though! Switching out the micro disk cards on the new trail cam has gotten somewhat easier. … Continue reading Delivery Fail, and coming unhinged
The temperatures have gone up quite a bit today, and the outside cats are quite appreciating it! I was very happy to see Rosencrantz this morning! I haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. Butterscotch also made an appearance this morning. I didn't see her yesterday. Her babies were just loving the new snow, … Continue reading It’s a fluffy day today!
There are eight cats in this picture. Can you spot them all? 😀 These guys sure do make my mornings! I also have a preview to share. I experimented with the no-knead, overnight dough recipe I'd made before, using the old dough bread baby from my Babcia's bread experiment. I didn't take any process photos … Continue reading Count ’em, plus a preview
Once again, Butterscotch simply would NOT let me check her out. I barely even got to pet her, never mind check her wound! I did manage to accidentally get a picture of a perfect snowflake on her ear, though! Doesn't she look so elegant and calm here? The photo lies! 😀 The best I could … Continue reading Stubborn kitty, and a milestone!
I just had to pause for a picture when I saw these guys, watching me when I came outside this morning. These guys know well enough to stay out of the wind, even if they can see fresh food and water is about to be dispensed! 😀 Except this little Spice Boy, who has a … Continue reading Morning kitties, and apparently we had a storm
After getting Butterscotch's wound stitched, and keeping her in the house overnight, we've been keeping an eye on her to make sure she is doing okay. As much as possible, anyhow. She is not making it easy! I had to zoom in, just to get a picture of her NOT letting me come close, this … Continue reading Stubborn Kitty!
We ended up keeping Butterscotch indoors, overnight. After 2 hours in the carrier, she was certainly more active and alert after the anesthetic wore off, but she was totally cracked out! We did not feel it would be safe for her to be outside, yet. She got the basement all to herself for the night. … Continue reading Back outside: Butterscotch recovery update
Well, Butterscotch is home! Just look at those pupils!!! She is still recovering from the anesthetic, so we've been told to keep her in the carrier for a couple of hours. She is on a 24 hour painkiller, the sutures will dissolve on their own in 3 weeks, and she has the 14 day antibiotic. … Continue reading Groggy Kittie
