Just a note on how he's doing since we lost my dad, Moose's best buddy; he's starting to be more affectionate with other people. He used to reserve most of his attentions for my dad, but now he's letting other people hold him and pet him. The only thing he won't do is sleep with my mom. He slept with my dad all the time, naps and overnight. If my dad was heading to bed, he'd say "Come on, Moose" and the big ol' boy would bounce on down the hall with him! My mom says that he will occasionally get on the bed, but by the time she's done getting her breathing mask and everything set up, he's lost patience with all her movements and leaves. But all in all he's doing very well. If only we could all snap back as well as a cat, right?
Back to the snow. Moose still screams to be let out and begs at the door, but once that door is open, he looks up like he's saying, "Are you kidding me?!" I do not blame him in the least for staying inside, it's too freaking cold!
Here you can see his paw prints go out and circle right back in again, don't even get to shut the door!
Just who's responsible for covering my yard with all this cold stuff?
And here's what he was looking at out there. The little foot prints you see on the sidewalk are bird prints because my mother puts corn on the walks instead of salt. (She leaves a short layer of snow and puts the corn down for traction, personally I prefer clear walks and salt!)
What looks like people footprints are actually squirrel butt prints! He jumps from spot to spot, sits and digs for buried corn. That's the sidewalk that had been shoveled the day before.
See the 'hats' of snow the bird feeders are wearing?
This is Moose's backyard, it took two days to accumulate that much snow on the grill. It's deeper than he is tall!
I had a couple of videos I wanted to share, but they won't load, grr. I'll try again with them tomorrow maybe.
Here's a still from one of them, Moose at the door watching birds! Oh boy does he want to get at them, but not enough to go out in the snow!
I'll be sharing a different Winnie's Wisher or two every day as they are over full and are in serious need of adopters! If you know anyone who needs some furry love, please direct them to the Daily Dose side bar and all the available kitties who are hoping for forever homes!
(Most orange cats are boys, Tinkerbell is a girl, wouldn't you like a rare beauty in your home?!)
