During the winter our patio furniture and the rain barrels are piled up under the kitchen window and covered in a tarp. That and the piles of snow make a nice ramp up to the window so the cats use it as a door. Yesterday, Blitzen was at the “door”.
We don’t have a lot of rules in our house but one of them is that you can’t bring wildlife indoors to play with it. He was pretty insistent and eventually Mat opened the window to let him in but made him drop the mouse first. He wanted to go right back outside to play with it. But I think he got the point.
It isn’t all death and destruction though. If I turn around from my desk, this is what I see.
