  • I took a little longer to return, but....

    Now some observations about our cats, dogs and opossums. Yep, I said opossums. One, maybe two opossums have taken up residence in our garage or at least during feeding time for the cats.

    We are now having to set aside a dish just for Oscar O.Possum. He shows up at feeding time, and is pretty bold about coming out to eat while we are there. IF we walk straight at him, he'll retreat but just being close is not enough.

    Yes, we could shoo him away, but he'll be back shortly after we walk away and yes, we could shoot him, but that is not our way. Last night Oscar looked looked like he had been in a fight with someone

    None of our cats or dogs appeared disheveled but Oscar had blood on his face. Maybe another opossum? He was cleaned up tonight.

  • Our dogs got a little strange with the snow today. Our oldest one stayed in but the other two were gone a lot.

    While I was talking to our oldest about how I appreciated her staying home to protect the house while the others played, in comes the other two with snow all over them. They looked just like kids coming in from a snowball fight.
