What a difference between yesterday and today! I took advantage of yesterday's warmth with a trip into town. At one point, on the way back, I was driving through precipitation that couldn't make up it's mind if it was snow or rain! LOL We actually hit 3C/37.4F, which was a couple of degrees warmer than … Continue reading There are those who prefer the cold!
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!
Yesterday, I got started on making covers for our big fish tank, to keep the cats out. Today, I assembled the first one. Of course, things did not go to plan. Does anything ever? 😀 One of the things I needed to figure out was how to secure the hardware cloth to the frame pieces, … Continue reading Converting the fish tank to a cat proof greenhouse, part 2: changed plans
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!
Today was a nice and quiet day, so maybe it was as close to the life of our cats as we humans can manage! 😀 Just look at Keith! He is such a calm and quiet cat. We brought him indoors to better treat his eyes; they were never as bad as his brother David's, … Continue reading Oh, to have the life of our cats
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
I spotted movement in an unexpected place while doing my rounds this morning, and just had to try for some photos! Yes, that is a cat butt. This old shed's roof is falling apart, and it looked like she was trying to decide if she could jump down through one of the holes. Wise kitty … Continue reading Cat on a … cold, snowy roof! Plus a trip to the vet
