We got our first big snow of the season on Saturday. No stay at home snow day for us - we loaded up the car, headed down and started shovelling. We cleared in front of the feeding stations and made little paths for the cats to walk on. Cats certainly don't like snow the way dogs do. It looks like a snowy winter so lots more shovelling to come.
On Sunday I did a trapping, trying to get Henry, a fluffy black cat who showed up a few months ago. He has been spraying and fighting and generally causing trouble. Instead I got a UBC (unidentified black cat). Since it didn't have an eartip I trundled the cat off to the vet. Once sedated, they discovered he had already been neutered, was older, maybe six and had bad teeth that should be pulled out. As much as I would have liked to do dental, I can't spare $400 or $500 for that. He could get hit by a truck next week. That money represents a lot of cat food. He did get eartipped though so won't have to go through that again. I released him on Tuesday and he flew out of that carrier.
I'm not a big fan of winter anyway, and now that I have the ferals to worry about, I can't wait for it to end.
