Mom just heard on the radio that this is the second coldest March/April in 120 years in our part of the world. You know some records just don't need to be broken!
The snow is slowly going down and I am having fun finding lots of mice under the snow! Mom says I am nearly as good a mouser as Angel Abby and I think that is high praise. I am also finding lots of coyote, porcupine and rabbit droppings and I think they are tasty. However, I have been told that I should cut down on those tasty treats!
The peeps also told me that they are gonna take down my crate. It currently sits downstairs empty and unused. I have had free run of the house for several months now whether the peeps are home or not. I have chewed the heel off of one of mom's slippers, but this is it for the damage I have done. When mom needs to be away, she fills a kong with some kibble and a treat or two, puts peanut butter on the ends and then freezes it. I have fun getting past the frozen peanut butter and then I chase the empty kong all over. When I am tired of doing that, I sleep in front of the door awaiting her return.
Well, I think I will supervise mom doing some house cleaning now. Talk to you all later!
This sure has been a strange year for weather. Glad you are finding treats outside and inside. Sounds like a great life Buddy.
We have a day of spring here, then it tries to be winter again...and so on...today is a nice springish day! Hooray
The peeps to the northwest of us are having horrible flooding...I hope you don't get into that sort of trouble...
Happy Treat hunting!
Hang in there.. Spring WILL come..
Yayyyyyyyy that the crate is disappearing !!!
Duncan - are you having strange weather too?
Freckles - we have snow in the forecast for tomorrow. We will see what happens. We are still having predictions for above average flooding this year and people are already very worried about this. I found a dead mouse today and mom took it away from me!
Flicka - the crate is now down. Yeah me!!
We are supposed to get more rain later tomorrow, ICK!
But not till later...and well, the lakes need their water too I hear.
Hope you get some spring soon!
Mice and tasty droppings sounds pretty good. But spring is nice too. Be patient it will come.
Mom says the only good thing about this delayed spring/prolonged winter is that we do not have any ticks yet. I am not sure what ticks are, but apparently they were already really bad here last year at this time, and this year we haven't seen a one! Guess they don't like snow!
