This is the Swirl Kat. He’s a huge bruiser of a tom. He’s been keeping new strays away for almost 2 years…except for females. He invites them home for dinner and they stay to have babies. (remember Ebby…and the 5 babies she lost :-( Swirl brought her home…)
Swirl has been leaving and staying away for days. We figured he had a “gal” to call on as tomcats will.
Today, not only was Swirl home, but he had a grey/white striped kitty with him. Ernie is sure it’s a young female. Great. Another one to trap and have spayed. I don’t mind Swirl having a girlfriend….I just don’t want a passle of kittens to raise, fall in love with and have to deal with. We have our quota of kitties! How do I explain that to Swirl?

Has been happening here. We start our mornings in the teens…we end up anywhere from 20-80 degrees. We can be overcast, drizzling, or sunny. We can all have pneumonia! This is crazy! Supposed to be 20 tonight, 55 tomorrow and * 75 * on Saturday!
I certainly won’t complain about the rain, sleet, snow we’ve had. Could’ve done without the ice. Missed 4 days last week and 1 day this week to icy roads. Not a good thing when it’s rent collection time at work! Makes the tenants panic-y.
At this point, I’m looking forward to Saturday and some warm sun. Maybe I will feel like cleaning out the garden! Dr. has cleared Ernie to do anything he wants…wonder if he’ll “want” to till the garden? Somehow, I don’t think that will be high on his “want to do list”, hee hee hee.
In the meantime, I’ve bought onion sets and have tomato seeds to start :-) IF we till, I have a hoop house to set up and will plant the onion sets. It will be garden season soon – I hope. Winter isn’t my favorite season…and it’s time for her to pick up her snowy skirts and move on.
