Tracks

Saturday morning was cold!

22 degrees F was the air temp, but the wind was icy despite the sunshine.

We had flurries too, and besides my own footprints, there were these:
Paw prints

While on my 'hood walk, a black cat crossed the street ahead of me, and walked up a driveway.

I witnessed the kitty from about 1/2 block away, and managed to see the cat's tailio slide underneath a construction tarpaulin in someone's backyard when I got there.

We were at least 1/2 mile from home, so this wasn't the black kitty that's been in our yard...I think.

It is good luck to have a black cat cross your path.

You are braver than me taking a walk in the cold air we had here on Saturday in the snow. I don't think I'll be going out again today with the high wind. And I miss it.

Hmm, my dad says of the several walks he took in the snow this past week, twice he noticed a snowblower chugging along directly in front of him...

I'm pretty sure you'll track down the tracker soon!

I saw what I think is a new cat in my neighbourhood, too, though it was just a flash as he fled.

It makes one worry to see kitties out in the elements like this... Hoping they find some shelter and food!

I saw paw prints outside, too, and can only hope the animal found shelter. A short haired black cat appeared outside our house the other day and I panicked for a moment over the resemblance to our Terra Dactyl. lol Best wishes!

I love seeing them, but I always worry so much about their welfare.

We do what we can for the outdoor cats, but they have it so hard.

There are always strange tracks in the snow outside my house.
