Hurry up Spring

There's been a few nice days lately that reinforce my belief that spring is on the way. The cats definitely prefer above freezing temperatures as do I.

Teddy says it can't come soon enough. He and especially poor Tina have so many mats. Long haired cats do not fare well in this kind of life. I think once it's warm we'll have to trap Tina and get her shaved. It must be painful.

Thankfully the cats have lots of shelters like these to curl up in.
On Friday Henry was very friendly or just very hungry. I could have easily picked him up but of course vets don't do surgeries on weekends. He's never like this on a Sunday or a Monday. The poor guy is pretty skinny under all his fur.
This is Ollie, we've only started to see him occasionally in the last few months. He is very skittish.
MC is back at it, being friendly, and wandering around up high.

First day of spring in just over two weeks!

  1. I haven't seen much of the cats I feed now for over a month. There have been many tracks, big and small so I hope they are ok. Tonight there were cat, bunny, bird and a larger animal tracks. I have no idea what it is but I am guessing coyote. I was told by someone who is experienced in this to put out another station of food away from where I feed the cats so that is what I have done. Each night the food is all gone from the night before. In the spring I will be able to watch for the cats again and see who made it through the winter. I pray they all did. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5
