Many years ago me 'n my furbro Felix, who has gone on to some place called the rainbowbridge, somehow found ourselves at this place in the country with a big ole barn 'n a big ole horse inside of it. We saw some humans,'n we was afraid of them, but we was so hungry we just looked at them 'n cried, cause we didn't know what else to do.
There was four kitties living there already 'n one of the humans felt that was enough, 'n said we should go to the animal shelter, but the other one said that we would be killed there, (we didn't think much of that idea), 'n why couldn't we just stay in the barn 'n be taken care of with food 'n whatever? So they agreed on that 'n we became the barn brothers.
Me 'n Felix didn't care what we was called, we was just happy to have someplace to stay 'n be fed, but it took a long time before we'd let the humans touch us, cause we'd never learned to trust humans. They got us fixed 'n effurything, (whateffer that means, I didn't know we was broken), 'n they built us a nest up in the hayloft, much like the one that Samhain's pawrents made for their gang of ferals, which is what got me started on this in the first place.
Some years later we all moved to a different place, it didn't have a barn, so me 'n my bro had to get used to living on what they called a porch. That wasn't too bad, except for the cold winter, the humans tried letting us live in the house with the other kitties, but we did stuff that wasn't supposed to be done inside, I don't know why, we was just marking our new territory.
So we were back out in the cold. Felix didn't do too bad cause he had lots 'n lots of fur, so he didn't feel the cold too much,
but I was freezing, even though the humans had made us boxes with blankies to sleep in. We weren't alone on the porch, there was also a big yeller dog, living in a nice big house with pillows 'n stuff 'n he liked all of us kitties real well, so I
moved in with him in the wintertime 'n he kept me warm through many a cold winters nite.
Well, earlier this year the big yeller dog died 'n I missed him, but I missed him more when the cold started to creep in. I didn't want to go in the doghouse by myself for some reason, until one day there was a trail of Nip leading all the way into it. There was a new fluffy blankie 'n a cuddly catbed on top of all the other stuff that was already there, 'n it was all nice 'n cozy, so I decided to give it a try. Well, it was real comfy, but what made it real warm was that one of the humans comes out in the evening when it's gonna be cold that nite 'n covers me up with another soft blankie 'n pulls down that big ole cover on top of the house so it covers up the entrance 'n keeps the chill away. So living in the doghouse is pretty comfy these days.
If any other fur wants to try it, come on over, there's lotsa room in there!
Wow! That sounds like fun. Is it like campstering out?
That does sound fun! Be right over!
That sounds comfy Merlin.
Love & Purrs,
Let the good times roll!
Glad to know that you will be sble to stay really warm and cozy over the long cold winter. Do you have a heated pad/bed in there, too?
No, but that's something for the humans to think about!
They have self-heating cat beds that warm up using your own body heat! My pal Cali has one - they sound pretty cozy.
Oh, Merlin, I'm sorry that your dog pal isn't there to keep you warm. And you probably miss your barn brother a lot - he is watching over you! I sure wish you would go inside in the winter! It sounds like your human is doing a good job providing you a comfy place, and getting a cat heating pad might be good. We also bought something that warms up in the microwave and stays warm for quite a few hours. It is placed underneath your bed. I think we got it at Petsmart!
