In the mean-time, we'll just continue improving this small space to make it as comfortable as possible.
Kane spent the day there getting used to the apt. It was his first time upstairs and after a few minutes of pacing he had a snack and settled to watch the goings-on around him. A move is never easy for anyone, including animals, so the more time he spends there the better, I hope. He will have 2 acres now to roam around and keep his muscles and joints working as he continues to age. He is 14 1/2 years now.
The feeders were very active last week. Lets see, I saw chickadees, sparrows, gold finch, blue-jays, mourning dove, wood-peckers, white-breasted and red-breasted nut-hatch, and the ever-entertaining crow. Not too many squirrels were spotted as I expect many are staying in their nests inside the trees with this cold snap we have here. They do not hibernate like a bear would but they do stay in-active during the coldest periods of our winter.

It's a fair piece to the feeders from here (across the drive-way) so I will be hanging some close to the house once we are there.
Mostly for the cat's entertainment.
The lovely Mourning Dove.We are certainly enjoying all the sun-shine.
The wind is blowing and the temperature is a frosty -19C today.
Time for a hot tea and a few of those apple-sauce cookies. "Yes, you'll get one, too, Kanie."
I'd like to send you over now to meet 4 darling cats that need our help. Please read the story on these dumpster cats and if you can help to send them to Canada just by making a donation to the cause, please do. Joan and Natalie are wonderful people who are trying to get a better life for 4 deserving, young and healthy cats. You will love Joan's photos and her huge heart.
Thank you and
