Cat update for week ending October 31

Spooooky Halloween Caturday to one and all! This week, we were visited by scary raccoon monsters, and the scariest of all creatures, a skunk.

But fear not, much cuteness was also observed.

Such as three cats in the cat house, two in a pile:

And you thought a pile of two cats was cute… see if you can handle three:

I took this picture of an old iPad stand to see if it’d work for modern ones (it won’t; designed for the original only), and incidentally got a picture of Pepper in the shop, looking rather concerned at my approaching so close:

Here’s Pansy in the back of the shop, in the center of the picture, waiting for her food to dispense:

Since it was below freezing earlier this week, I hooked up the cats’ heated water dish. When the temperature is below freezing, it gets just warm enough to keep the water liquid (I then discontinued the other waterer, filled with leaves here):

Three cats outside… or maybe four; I think one is behind the shrub:

A family of raccoons visited the cat house, including going inside; fortunately no cats home at the time:

Later that night, a skunk also explored inside:


The scent of those visitors didn’t scare off the cats, fortunately (must be a bug on the ceiling):
