Coldest day so far this winter

On the coldest day this winter...

Ed and the girls had the right idea. 

My main floor is in chaos. The second coat of paint goes on next and everything from that room is scattered everywhere. The cats are really enjoying this since they love to lie on anything new and if furniture is moved to a new spot, they think it's there to be conquered. Me, I'm going crazy because I have to have order in my life and things have to be where they belong or I go 'bezerk'. "I'm  a busy woman...I can't live in a messy house."

I have had it, it is just so cold here. I believe it is the coldest day so far this winter. The ferals are having to dine on dry food only while this cold-front is here. Everything else freezes within minutes. I am leaving lots of dry food and a variety of types and praying they are coping. I have  homes to visit this weekend but the month of January has been mildly quiet since we have Christmas just behind us. Now, everyone wants to vacation somewhere warm. This is where I get VERY busy. I bet I have more keys collected for February's cat-sitting than most janitors wear on their belts. I wear a key around my neck now that I love. I guess you could say it's my signature key. I purchased two of them from Venus Beadery. You should take a peak at her blog. Her Rosie, a cute little calico who loves to retrieve a ball and play in my purse,  is one of my favorite kitty clients.
Julie dropped in to return my carrier and tell me that little Smudgie is doing just great. She slept with the couple the first night and was happy & playful in the morning. Julie  & her husband are head over heels in love with her already. I knew it. She is just so precious. Julie will send me a photo of her in her new home very soon. There are 3 lovely cats on my previous post that need loving homes. Please take a look if you are contemplating adopting a new kitty.

Stay warm everyone & have a wonderful Sunday
Hugs, Deb


  1. I love how when you move something the cats think it's brand new and have to explore it!! Stay warm!

  2. Hello!
    What a great job you do with he cats, I`m impressed. You know that I adopted my Penny from our local cat rescue center, I will never regret that.
    Wish you a lovely Sunday.
    All the best,

  3. It's actually been hovering around the zero mark here yesterday and is already zero today. It's supposed to be like this all week. Banjo and I are very happy! :)

    Stay warm Deb!

  4. Thank you again for protecting & loving the homeless cats in your area. We need more caring people in the world.

  5. A nap in the warm sun is JUST the thing we all need! Kisses to Ed.

  6. So nice that you're taking good care of those cats, Deb !
    They're lucky to have you !
    Have a nice week,

  7. So glad Smudgie is safe, warm & loved already. Every night I pray for all feral cats to be fed by kind humans and stick it out one more night in this icy weather (plus the one I'm feeding). Can't wait to see the finished room.
