Biiiiig blizzard! Yikes!

Last night and today we had tons and tons of snow (that interesting white stuff that falls form the sky I like to chatter at) and huge gusts of wind blowing it everywhere! It was scary even just hearing it from the safety of the indoors. The power went out a few times and even though we weren't too frightened we weren't our normal selves- even Alfie and Ernie wouldn't purr last night! When the storm cleared there were piles of snow 2-5 feet deep everywhere outside- a real mess! The feral cats our foster parents care for are missing in action and I can't imagine how my siblings and especially me would have survived this much snow if we were still living under a shed. I'm a very lucky little twizzly girl to be warm and happy curled up on my foster mom's feet with my sweet Alfie right now and I was just plain spoiled last night eating canned food while the blizzard raged on. Our purrs go out to all the feral and stray kitties out there battling winter weather!

In other news, I'm making strides! I'm out in the open now all the time; they stopped dragging me back to the cage a few weeks ago as the chase was too stressful. At first I spent a lot more time in hiding than my siblings but now I'm out in the open all day, I play up close and personal with my people when the others are playing, and they even get to pet me sometimes. Influenced by Alfie's love of people's laps I've twizzled onto foster mom's legs several times and have even found my way into her lap! I definitely struggle with confidence a lot more than the others but that's understandable with my condition and at least I'm proving to be a cat who is naturally curious about my environment and not content to hide in a corner! Engaging with people like this is a great sign for my "taming potential" so we're just going to stick with lots of play and food therapy and hope I get to be as friendly as my crazy brothers are!
