A skunk, possum, and raccoon visited the cats, plus several in-person sightings of cats, and much cuteness and snuggles. It’s Caturday!
I think this is the first time I’ve seen a skunk visit the cat house. While watching it, I was fervently hoping that nothing would startle it; I’d never get that stink out:
A couple of hours later, a possum also visited:
Porcini and Pommie at the cabins:
An in-person sighting of Porcini when refilling the bird feeders:
I put an Eero Wi-Fi router back in the breezeway, so am now able to access that camera again. Without it, I can’t get that cam to load. Here’s Spud; he spends pretty much every night in that cabin:
Porcini and Pommie again:
Two cats inside the cat house. I had a spiel last time about the SD card for the cat house cam not working, but a few days later it started working again. So no need to replace it after all:
A screenshot of my cam viewing app, showing a cat in the cabins and two in the house:
Another screenshot, showing a cat outside the cabins, one in the house, and a possum in the feeder:
A raccoon invading the house; fortunately nobody was home at the time:
Here’s a sped-up GIF:
That sort of invasion worries me, as if a cat were on the top level when a raccoon came in, it’d be trapped, since the front and back doors are on the lower level. So, I have bought another cat door, the same as downstairs, and plan to install it in the middle of the back wall, probably on Wednesday, weather permitting (Sunday and Wednesday are my weekend days, but tomorrow looks like it’ll be rainy). Hopefully the cats don’t get upset at me modifying their house.
Poppy and Poppa:
Poppy wanted breakfast, so went around Poppa; he just sat there, without reacting. I’m glad he behaves nicely with our ferals:
A raccoon approached the cabin where Pommie was sleeping; she was alert, but didn’t move, and the raccoon retreated. Phew:
A live sighting of Porcini sitting on an overturned bench, and Pommie drinking from the stream, with the cat house in the background:
A GIF of Spud running into the breezeway and up to the cabin:
I spotted Porcini in the kitchen garden (and she spotted me):
I also saw her on the bench by the fountain garden:
More cute snuggles:
Here’s a GIF of Porcini stretching, licking, and snuggling with Poppy:
A shorter, more smooth variation; can you stand the cuteness?!
Finally, a summary GIF of this week’s 87 photos; lots more great shots not included above, including cameos of Rory and me:
