Wow, Mom is finally letting me do a diary entry. Those "dogs" always take up so much time, she never has time to help me with my diary.
I'm an inside cat so I don't have too many adventures. I do get to venture down to the basement, but as my Dad is a carpenter he has all these noisy machines down there and I don't like to be around them. The machines have all these wonderful piles of sawdust by them that are like little litterboxes all over. Dad chases me out of there. So I spend most of my time looking out the windows - I have accesss to all sides of the house, and I sleep in a box padded with blankets on the dining room table. Life is good.
Mom is sad about Spec the 12 year old cat that lives next door. Her family moved out in November and did not take her with, so the poor thing has been surviving the cold Minnesota winter as best she can. We couldn't take her in as we have a full house and she runs from people so Mom couldn't take her somewhere. Mom made her a very cosy box lined with blankets and it has a swinging cat door so she's been hanging out in there and Mom and the neighbors upstairs have been feeding her. Now that the house is going into foreclosure they cleaned up the yard and threw away her house. Mom had an extra large covered litter box so she put that out in our front yard underneath the fir tree and she's using that now. And of course those cats that roam the neighborhood have gotten her pregnant again. Mom says she must have at least 3 litters a year and she's 12 years old. So Mom's plan is to try and approach her when she's almost due. She thinks she will be able to put her in a kennel then and take her somewhere safe.
So my job is to keep an eye on her during the day and report back to Mom.
Oops I see her, I have to go keep tabs.
