Sunday - Feels like Spring

I walked into the kitchen this morning and this is the sight that greeted me!! I grabbed my camera and only got two shots off, one he turned his head and the other was this one. This is"Wild Cat" one of my first barn kitties and he is about 6 now. You can see the horses outside behind him, he was wanting to come in.

Abraham made sooooo jealous on his blog the other day when he shot an awesome picture of a cardinal. These are very ellusive birds and I have been trying forever to get a good shot of one, this is about the best I have come up with yesterday morning when I put some seed out for the birds.

Considering a week ago we were still experiencing lows of -1F today is a heatwave. Our high for the day has been 56 with rain expected tonight, but scattered. The ground is draining quickly because the clay is still frozen enough to let it run away rather than soak in as there is still snow on the ground.

Stan very kindly came over and fixed my three electric fences for me this afternoon. It is amazing when you have the right tools and the know how, how easy it looks LOL. I do still have a short in the one fence so have to do a line check but it is probably just a broken insulator. I went shopping last night with Stan's wife Valerie, wow sure is nice when the shops are quiet and I never normally go out at night so I enjoyed the change and the female company. I didnt buy too much either LOL, just some boring groceries.

Taxes is coming along, still looks aweful but he is letting us wash it which is a good thing. I am going to try to debreed the wound tonight by rubbing it lightly. I will just have to see how he tolerates it and play it from there.

Well that is about it for today, I am going to go and try to catch up on some of my blogging buddies who I have been neglecting lately.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. ((((Hugs))))

Oh your cat picture really made me smile. You couldn't have a better composition if you'd set it up!
The cardinal makes a wonderful shot of colour against the snow. I'm glad Taxes is mending {{HUGS}}

That is an absolutely brilliant shot of 'Wild Cat', really made me chuckle! There is that wonderful snow again, I am sure you are fed up with it but I'd love to see a little of it over here!

Glad you got out for a little while Lori, it does us all good to shop every now and again :o)

{{{HUGS}}} to you xx

It sounds like things are moving along. That's good. I hate electric fences. I can never keep mine hot. I'm not sure what the deal is. Maybe I need to inspect my insulators more closely. lol

I'm glad to hear that Taxes is still being good. I hope the debreeding is uneventful.

That is a really cute picture of the cat, and the cardinals are great too.

You did get some nice photos of the cardinals and the house sparrows too. Nice shots. I like the cat photo a lot.

It was 55 degrees F here at 4:00 a.m. today when I got up. It should get up into the middle 60s later. Rain then and tomorrow a mess here.
