My stories of our two cat families, and other cat encounters
Saturday, February 14, 2015
...to worry! It's bitterly cold, with sub-zero temperatures, and wind-chills in the negative double-digits. Patty and Sweetie came out for some fresh kibble 30 minutes ago, and I poured fresh water for them. But now the sun is setting, and I will pray and remain anxious for them all night long. Sure, we built them an insulated shelter, with a warming pad and wind-blocks, and straw...but it's sub-zero out there! My peace-of-mind for Patty and Sweetie will probably not return until the end of March. You've heard about the crazy cat lady, well...I'm going crazy because of the cats! I am devoted to their little furry hides, but I can DO NOTHING ELSE now. Grace under pressure? Not me! Just wait and see? Forget that...I'm pacing the floor. Hearing the wind howl in the bare tree branches...in fact, the whole house is creaking and groaning in the gusts...and I'm close to hyperventilating. Everything I planned for the 'o' cats was for this scenario; when the weather is too brutal. How did I do? Only the next few days will tell.
Happy Valentine's Day to all; my heart is outside in The Cat Hotel.
