We still have several inches of snow on the ground, but it’s very slowly melting. Almost everything was closed this morning. The roads were covered in ice making them worse this morning that yesterday.
One of the cats is missing. Mother Cat came in yesterday morning to eat, but we haven’t seen her since. It’s been 24 hours since she’s eaten. She doesn’t stay with us. She only comes here to eat. She does come inside, but the door must remain open or she panics. It hasn’t been that cold, but she could have holed up somewhere in someone’s garage or under someone’s house and is trapped.
I am worried about her. She has been in the neighborhood for a long time, and she must be getting old. She gave us her two litters, but she’s never trusted us enough to let us pet her. But that’s okay--I just hope she shows up soon. I have some real chicken just waiting for her.
