Finally we got the day I've been waiting for. It was cool and breezy with no humidity.
It was an open the window day. We haven't had one of those in ages. I was curing some newly cut soap in the breeze. I'll tell you all about it on Saturday.
So how did we spend our day? Mucking out the cat huts. On Monday I bought a car load of pillows to make kitty sleeping bags.
I make a little tent out of the pillows and insert this kennel heater in the middle. It keeps the kitty just the right temperature. It doesn't get too hot. We have four heated huts for our little friends who refuse to come in at night in the winter.
First we have to get rid of all the old bedding. I cycle the inside kitty's cat beds and blankies to the outside cats every year and buy the inside kitties new things.
It's not really cold enough yet for the pillows or the heaters to be turned on but we wire them up so we are ready. It won't be long.
We used to have them all up on the deck but this year we separated them into different areas of the yard. They seem to not be getting along as well as they used to. The new kitty that showed up last winter has upset the hierarchy of power and it always takes a while for them to settle in after a new member shows up. Mommy Kitty and Hoover used to beat the stuffing out of each other two years ago now they eat out of the same bowl. Cats. They are just the weirdest critters.
