A new week begins...

Being an in-home cat-sitter I am on the road a lot. Next to the cats I think the one thing I love the most is caring for the cats who live in the country. Like this morning, after parking at the gate and making my way up a very long driveway avoiding all the early spring worms that appear after heavy rain, I came upon these guys.
These are wild turkeys and they live all over our area. I won't ever forget the day a couple of them dive-bombed my car because I was disturbing the flock by being on the back road. I photographed them from the window because frankly, I don't care to be chased by one. There had been a high wind last night that knocked down the bird-feeder so the birds, chipmunks & wild turkeys were having a feast. Inside, one of the cats hid (probably from the high wind last night) and one could care less.
"I could care less"
They both received breakfast, lots of cuddles and a few treats to keep them happy and calm some nerves. Two gorgeous long-haired cats that I will enjoy grooming each day.

I am caring for a very sweet dog for the next little while. She will be lording over her 2 acre lot and keeping all the trespassers at bay. She will also like to cuddle on the couch and watch TV with me. She's a doll and you will meet her soon.

My grand-kitty Hugo is at our home and it's always a race to see if I can make the bed before he plops down in the middle of it. Sheets done but duvet will have to wait. He beat me to it.
Hugs, Deb


  1. I usually make the bed on top of my Helpers!

  2. I can just see you dodging those worms! LOL My cats love it when I make the bed too and sometimes they will stay under there all morning! ;D

  3. Do you stay over at houses too or just come back home for sleeping?

  4. I do not cat-sit over-night but in a special case, I would.

  5. Thanks so much for sharing the adorable images. There's no such thing for a little kitty as a safe and warm place to snooze.

  6. Beautiful cats! Love those turkeys too. We used to get them right up under our birdfeeders but I haven't seen any that close for a while.
    Have a happy Wednesday!
