First, an update on the kitties! Beep Beep came half out of her baby nest to have a bit of food while I was there, with the babies peacefully snoozing in a pile. I was even able to get a picture, despite her best efforts to use her butt to block my attempts. 😀 She … Continue reading Update, up and broken things
Before I show you the messy stuff, let me share with you some adorableness! This morning, while doing my morning ablutions, I noticed Dave on the bath chair, eyeballing the towels. We have a small shelf with folded towels under some hanging towels. The hanging towels cover the top, and the cats like to go … Continue reading Well, that’s a mess
Things warmed up a bit today, and we got a bit of snow. It won't last long; tomorrow, the temperatures are supposed to dip again. After some consideration of what materials I had available, today I finally built an insulated shelter for the outside cats, as an extra layer of protection in the sun room, … Continue reading Use Watcha Got cat condo!
I discovered the cats were not the only ones enjoying the warmer, insulated sun room, this evening! My original intention was to make sure to close the door to the Old Kitchen behind me as I went into the sun room, so the cats wouldn't run in, but with our fragrant friend here, I didn't … Continue reading Hello, Friend
It warmed up a little bit today, so we got to work on winterizing the sun room. When that was done, I was even able to modify the shelf we have outside the sun room into a cat shelter. What a job it was, too!! The first order of business was to empty enough of … Continue reading Winterizing: sun room and cat shelter
It's been quite interesting, as I work around the yard, in areas I worked on last year, and seeing the differences. One of the differences is, I am seeing all sorts of things popping up, in areas that used to be choked with years of dead grass, fallen branches and garbage, or hidden away by … Continue reading Things that are, and are not
One of my daughters let me know that the water bowl in the sun room was no longer on its heater, so when I had a moment, I went out with a pitcher of fresh warm water, heading through the Old Kitchen to fix it. On opening the inner door, I noticed the food bowl … Continue reading You’re not Slick!
Yesterday, I started on making a last minute Christmas gift - a wheelchair capelet for my aunt - and ended up finishing it at about 3:30 in the morning. So I slept in a bit. The cats did not appreciate my bringing their food out, later than usual! 😀 When I came outside, there were … Continue reading Late!
So, this is what the cats left for me, this morning. Glancing out the bathroom window, earlier, there were 3 or 4 of them - including Big Jim sitting over the light bulb - looking at me with innocent faces. Or, more like, "where's our food and warm water, human?" It's all fixed up now, … Continue reading Cat Mess
My daughter called me over and told me I needed to look out the bathroom window. Were the kittens all being cute again? Nope. Ferdinand was. He had been asleep when she saw him, but woke up when I used my phone's camera to be able to see (ah, the joys of being short...). He's … Continue reading Right at home
