We have been hit with a very large snow-storm. When you know this type of weather is on its' way, preparations must be made by leaving extra dry food and water for the cats in your care. That was done.
By the looks of it out there, this will be a two, large coffee-needed, kinda morning. Thankfully, with the retired-guy at the wheel, I'll get where I need to go a lot sooner.
Oh, I didn't mention he is working OVER-TIME.
So whatever your weather, if you like cats (and you'd better LOVE them if you are here right now) I have listed some of my Christmas kitty-clients for your viewing pleasure.
So grab some tea and come back to see.
My name's Simba and I'm glad to meet you."Simba, the Abyssinian. Simba is one of the reasons why I keep cat-sitting. It's been my busiest Christmas season in 18 years of cat-sitting and wouldn't feel like Christmas without seeing this guy and his buddies Midnight & Albert.
Here's one of my new clients. Meet JJ
This face is what got me out the door in the morning. Coffee in hand, driving like an 80 year old through a snow-storm, JJ's house was first on my route.
Thanks for so many 'cat in window' photos, JJ.Penny & Zoie
Penny is a vibrant calico
Zoie is a pastel calico
Then off to see Tootsie & Marvin
They have the best view for bird-watching.
Vora hid in a box and made me hunt for her
She thought it was very funny. I, on the other hand, was flippin' out.
Her roomie, Olivia told me where she was.
"She's in the vacuum cleaner box."
While Optimus kept his mouth zipped and played along.
"I was busy counting my 18 front toes"
Dominique posed like a super-model
I may have enough photos of her to fill an album.
Emmi & Didi
are the most pampered cats alive. They know how to 'work it'.
Smudge lives alone and enjoys CBC radio
How many Christmases have I cared for Lola, Rosie & Otis?
Brothers Buddy & Chase
and Miss Josephine
There are a few more but I have yet to photograph them.
Each evening, before returning home it was time to feed the ferals. They have been living on dry food this past while but Christmas night they feasted on turkey pieces and all the trimmings.
Tonight it will be back to dry food only as the temperatures are dropping and everything else will freeze.
There are many places they find shelter from the wind and snow but I pray each night that God will keep them warm and safe.
I wish I could say Audrey posed for these napkins but that would mean she was paying her way around here with her modelling job and she would have none of that.
I found them in a local store and grabbed them faster than a cat on a mouse.
I'll be back with more cats to show you.
