I have a dog, Boo, and 3 feral cats that I personally tamed. In the other part of this house, where my son + daughter-in-law live, and where the communal parts of the house are (kitchen, dining room and living area) they have 4 rescues, one of which is a recently tamed feral kitten that just had kittens if her own (which were adopted out). Now, in the backyard we have 2 feral female cats that live out there with their 4 kittens. All of whom we feed and care for by building them shelters to get through the harsh NB winters. We converted the woodshed, built a large shelter nestled amongst the giant pine tree and we made a small feral shelter underneath an even bigger pine tree. We have a partially sheltered feeding station built on the back step, where we can keep track of who we are feeding through the back patio door windows.
I walk several times a day from my end of the house to the coffee area, which is located in the dining room, way at the other end of the house. Now, before the 2 females brought their kittens out, that trek for coffee contained enough distance and distractions for me to forget what I was over there for. Now, with the additional kittens peeking into the patio door windows, it’s a wonder I ever get a coffee at all, let alone lunch. It has reached ridiculous proportions at this point. I can fritter away an entire day doing nothing more than walking back and forth, watching kittens and eventually drinking coffee😄.
How can anyone not get distracted by this face peeking in the window
Come on! Are they not the most adorable things ever?
I am overloaded with cuteness all day! And I walk enough in the day to qualify as officially exercising. Not to mention all the laughing I do as they roll around and play with each other.
