Cat update for week ending February 29

This Caturday, some wildlife visitors and increased use of cozy accommodations.

The tripawd coyote visited again last Saturday night, but hasn’t been back since:

An animated GIF of three cats going in and out of the breezeway cabin (crowded in there!), with another cat watching from the log pile in the background:

Three cats again, this time by their house:

A raccoon visited Porcini in a cabin:

She swiped at it and retreated out the back door; it jumped back then left.  She came back later.

Two cats in their house:

Two possums in the feeder (with no food). Unusual to see two; they usually travel singly. These look young, though:

Pumpkin and Porcini; he just sniffed and left. Perhaps disappointed that she has taken the cabin he had preferred. He hasn’t been hanging around very often this week:

A rare color picture of Pansy in the back of the shop, using the heating pad:


Poppy enjoyed the cat house a few times this week:

A cat climbing up the pole behind the cat house:

Jumping down from the pole; probably not as comfortable as climbing down backwards, but faster:

The left cabin is the original one I got before building the cat house, and the cover had torn off the heating pad, making it less comfortable to sit on, so the cats haven’t been using it. So I added an old spare flannel pillowcase to it, leaving the old cover bunched up at the back (it’s still partially attached):

Pommie approved of the addition of the pillowcase:

They’re still there as I write this, a couple of hours later. Makes me happy to see cozy cats.

  2. So, the second coyote image caused me to think the coyote was smoking a cigar (yeah, my imagination triggers on crazy stuff).

    My second thought was the coyote needed a derby hat…

    What? A derby hat?

    I was a Ernie Kovacs fan when I was a kid… I cried the night they announced his death. There was often a Gorilla in a Derby hat and the gorilla had a cigar if I remember right (hey, I was pretty young back then). I also liked the Bat Masterson show.

    Later on, I learned about Jack Woolam and his Gorilla suit complete with Derby Hat and cigar.

    So there’s this and then the back story…

    Thanks for the many wonderful memories this post spawned from a kid who still misses Ernie Kovacs!
