Yesterday, which was the Twelfth Day of Christmas, we shared a random assortment of festive photos. Some of the photos we shared showed off the snow we got for the New Year. What we didn't show was this here human's attempt to get photos of some of our outdoor Christmas decorations decked out with the snow. I wanted to get a photo before the snow in front of the decorations was disturbed, but I made the rookie mistake of taking pup Astrid into the yard with me. She was a perfect saboteur, not only disturbing the snow in front of the decorations, but also simply standing in the way.
Festive Doodle of the Day
Sadly, we now have our final festive doodle for this Christmas season. That's certainly not to say we won't be sharing many more winter doodles, but this will be the final one for Christmas. That is, until Christmas in July.
Today's tip on caring for ferals and other outdoor cats yet again relates to shelters. If outdoor cats aren't using a shelter you've put out for them, first look it over and make sure nothing is off with it. Make sure it is not too confined or that its entrance isn't too small, as such things might make a cat feel trapped or cornered inside. If need be, such as if you do think an unused feral cat structure is being avoided due to confinement, add extra doorways or in another way make the shelter less likely to make cats feel trapped.
