Double Stack

April 30th, 2018

It’s great to wake up in the morning with sore muscles from spending the day gardening. While it’s beautiful and sunny during the day, it’s still getting chilly at night. The furnace is still working sometimes and the cats like to run over and lay on the vents when it comes on. Here we have Samson on a shelf above the vent and Littles laying on the vent right below him. Sometimes, there’s even a cat sitting up on top the bench for a triple layer of warming cat.

The cats never fail to entertain, that’s for sure. They keep me constantly chuckling and laughing.

What are you pets up to this week?

    Susy, the furnace was kicking on last night here in Nebraska as well. The temperature will be in the 80s today so the windows will be open for the first time to let in some fresh air. I love sleeping with the windows open at night and falling asleep to the sounds of the night. Even with living in the city, I still like to hear the sounds of the night. It’s very soothing for me to fall asleep to them.

    As you know there are no inside pets in my home. The garden pets are doing what they do best. The Robins are gobbling up worms as I dig them up and the wild turkeys are keeping the area bug and tick free. Oh, and let’s not forget about the hawks that are always on continuous aerial hunt for snakes and mice. I have not seen a rabbit or a snake around in years.

    Have a great pet entertaining Day.

      I’ll be opening the windows on Wednesday, they say it’s going to get up to 80. I can’t wait for some fresh air in the house!!!!

    I have two cats who are my housemates. They are both very entertaining and comforting furry friends. I can’t imagine life without them.
