Well we're still freezing our furry paws off here in Iowa. We've had our fireplace going non-stop. Mama feels like all she does is fill wood into the fireplace and feed us furkids. The cold has flared up the arthur-I-tis and fibromyalgia that Mama has so she has been down quite a bit lately. She thinks the stress of losing Angel Snickers is catching up with her illnesses now too.
We can hardly believe Angel Snickers has been gone for 2 months already. We really miss her. Mama has a strange feeling that Angel Snickers is sending hungry wild animals our way. It's funny how Hootie showed up while Snickers was sickly. Then 3 days after Snickers went to the rainbow bridge, it was Thanksgiving Day and Mama decided to go give Hootie a can of tuna. That's all it took and Hootie was getting food each day. Then a month later, she's living in the house with us! I ask you, are we a soup kitchen??? hehehehe!
Now Scuby is wondering who this orange & white tabby MALE cat is that's been hanging around the last few months. He is definitely NOT FIXED. Did Angel Snickers tell him to hang out here???
It's possible that he could actually be a sibling of Scuby or even Sylvester or he could be Scuby's Papa. We're pretty sure he is feral. Scuby has been watching for him daily and wonders why he is hanging around. He looks exactly like Scuby, except that the white does not go up onto his legs, just his paws are white. Here are a few pictures of Scuby:
We also wonder if Angel Snickers is sending more bambi to sleep in our yard. There are tons of them sleeping here daily. Mama has put out stale bread and apple peelings for the birds and guess who is eating these things up?? Yep, the bambi and the orange/white cat. Besides those things, they are eating every branch of our trees that they can reach. We have so much deep snow that they are really hurting for food. Here are some recent photos of a few of the deer.
Two young deer snoozing away:
This young fawn is in our yard every day. She sleeps during most of the day. She is very very small.
When Mama takes me Butchy out to potty, we can get within 10 feet of her and Mama even talks to her, hehehe!
Isn't she cute???
I think Angel Snickers has told all of the deer that we have an open SOUP KITCHEN in our yard. The deer have even poked their heads inside of the garage looking for food.
Mama feels like we are an open rescue place or something. Too bad she can't work to earn some money, cause she would probably build a pole building and set things up to have a pet rescue. And you know what that would mean?? I would have a TON of brudders & sissies around here cause she wouldn't be able to give them away, she would have to keep them all!
Oh yeah, and guess what Mama did yesterday?? I caught her putting cat food outside for the MALE cat! Yep, Papa knows about it too. She said it's only while it's so darn cold outside. Yeah right, I've heard that one before, hehehe.
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Butchy, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby & Hootie
