Polar Bear Weather....

A view of our home this morning with the "Ozark Polar Bear" crossing the front yard.  Deep snow and temps to reach -5 tonight.  This has resulted in leaving the garage door cracked open for our "not really ours" cat Firefly.

I worried all last night about him, but tonight will be much colder.  Firefly is feral and won't come to us, but he likes our presence and stays close to the house.... of course this is where he gets fed.  I'll sleep better tonight knowing he has a warm place to go if he chooses.  I think he's been staying under our deck during all this weather.  I'll put a special treat in the bowl and push it under the garage door.  I'll make up a nice little bed for him too......

Oh, yes..I do hope he keeps warm. I used to fill up an empty milk jug with very warm water and wrap it in an old towel and make a wee bed. We have lost our feral cat whom I loved so much..He was just beginning to let me touch him after several years and then one day, he must have climbed under my car and was there when I drove to town. That broke my heart, I did love him and know that he, in his own way, loved me.

Stay warm! Although we had a huge thunderstorm last night I think the ice and snow is going to skip our part of North Carolina.

Oh my heart goes out to firefly, and all little creatures that have to survive outside in such harsh conditions, though it sounds like you have given him a lovely safe place to snuggle down in.....keep warm Dulcy, hugs hugs.xxxx

Grateful for the beauty that is you.
