Boots for Bears and other stuff.

Just sitting here waiting for daylight to get up on the roof and clean the chimney.   The weather has warmed up a bit so a good time to take advantage of it.  Hopefully some of the snow will shrink down. 







Fortunately someone came by wearing snowshoes and broke a path to the feeders for me as the snow was well up over my knees.

I've been very excited to have gotten a new bear pattern.  I'm anxious to get at it when things settle down here a bit more.   Every now and then if I go to the Goodwill I keep an eye out for baby shoes and boots.    These are some that I've collected.  The two pairs of winter boots are much smaller than they appear in the picture. 




Wednesday coming Tommy will be going to the vets to get castrated.   I'm upset about it already.   Not that he's being castrated but that I can't explain to him what's going on and that he'll be coming back home with mom when it's all over. 

The imp himself.



Stanley looking on:


Frankie at the window yelling "Mom, make the snow and cold go away, I want to go out."



Well, that's about it.   Got to get a move on here.

OC, I know how you feel about Tommy, I feel the same way when my furry babies have to have their "operation." Maybe Stanley and Frankie have already filled him in on what's going to happen so he won't be too scared...keeping my fingers crossed for both of you.

I sure wish it was possible for you to send the excess of beautiful snow to the mountains I live in!

Blessings,

Victoria

I know exactly how you feel when they have to have an op. My 5 month old kitten Lily is due soon for her spay...her tummy tuck I keep calling it LOL. It'll probably stop her swinging on the curtains for one day....if I'm lucky!

haha Victoria, do you suppose they've told him.

Thanks for visiting Gillian. I expect you'll have a few hours reprieve from the curtain swinging when the time comes for Lilys spaying. lol
