Hi. I’m MacKenzie.
The Mother of Cats says that it is spring today. Spring! The birds are coming back! Yellow Boy and I really like birds. Squirrels, not so much. Birds are awesome, though. And bugs. And snakes. We really like to chase snakes!!
I tried to get the Mother of Cats to let me outside to look for birds this afternoon, but she refused to do it. Something about snow on the ground and too much wind. What a silly Mother of Cats! Doesn’t she understand that it is now spring?
See what a good boy I am.
Can I have some cookies now?
Notes from the Mother of Cats:
- The project notes for the Mixology are here. If you don’t know this pattern, it is the Mixology Shawl from Casapinka.
- Sunday night I drove home from a visit with my son through a thunder snow storm. If you don’t know about these things, they are pretty exciting. Lightening, thunder, and downpours of snow. So much snow. We had over 6 inches of the heavy slushy stuff before it was over. The cats were in the closet sheltering in place when I got home. Poor things.
- The next door neighbors have a dog that has become a ferocious barker over the winter. She even ate a hole in the fence so she can keep a better eye on my yard. Poor cats. It’s going to be a difficult return to the great outdoors when the warm weather arrives.
- The snakes are little garter snakes; mostly harmless, but surprisingly fast when a cat is hunting them.

What a sweet pic of Mackenzie grooming Yellow Boy!!! And your Mixology is looking awesome.
Thanks. Yellow Boy is really MacKenzie’s pet, and 12 years later he still thinks that he is MacKenzie’s kitten. They both seem to think that the Mixology is theirs. 🙂
Wow you’ve had a lot going on. What brutal weather. Those kitties of yours are so sweet. I hope your neighbor fixes the fence hole soon.
Thanks. The kitties are the best companions. The neighbor talked to me about the fence, and they will repair it. I was out last week in the yard and talked to the dog, and she did calm down. I do hope that she will remember me in time. 🙂
