After the Storm

All my shovelling on Friday during the snow storm was pretty much a waste of time, except that while I was there shovelling the cats could get to their food.  At this time of year I frequently feed twice a day but Friday's drive to their location was not fun and I expected the drive later in the day would be even more difficult.  I don't usually leave food behind because it attracts other critters like skunks but Friday I did because I knew I was not planning to return.

This is what it looked like Saturday late morning when I arrived.  The sun was shining and it was not a bad day outside.

The snowplow has been by making it even more
challenging to get to the feeding shelters
When I arrived to feed the Logan Gang I saw one set of footprints in the snow going into the shelter and some of the canned food was eaten.

Drifting snow blocked the hole on the other
side of the fence so the cats couldn't get through

When I arrived to look after the East Side Gang it didn't look too bad, at first.

My path is completely snow covered with no sign
of my footprints from the day before

Here comes Doodle

Today the cats are able to get around quite easily.  I removed a lot of the snow and the sun has melted some too.

The cats and I are sure looking forward to the spring.


  1. Doodle looks super, as do all the kitties. Snow seems like a big PIA. Maybe we don't want any after all.

  2. Spring will be here soon! i know that them has full tummies and warm shelter makes all the difference hug hug hug

  3. Thank you for taking care of these little ones. I know they appreciate it.

  4. Looking forward to spring, I bet you are! We are too, but I think your reason is greater! Keep warm!

  5. Bless you for taking such good care of them in the dead of winter. You are such a wonderful person to take such good care of them. They are lucky to have you too,.
