Happy New Year! Hope it's a happy and healthy year for all of you. Thank you for reading my blog, and all your kind comments.
Last night we had our traditional New Year's Eve chocolate fondue...
Yes, we ate pretty much all of that. I even made poundcake from scratch yesterday!
Julius wanted to share it with us...
After gorging, we spent some quality time with the barn kitties.
Mootie loves to be brushed and I make an effort to brush her every day.
We have two "cat rooms" in the barn, which they seem to love. This room has 100 bales of hay on top of it upstairs, and is quite warm and cozy! I lined the bottom of the walls with straw bales to keep out any floor-level drafts.
We were covered in mostly-orange kitties last night!
Honey was waiting for her turn to be brushed!
Redford grabbed my lap, as per usual. He gets jealous of the other kitties and will literally boot them off my lap!
Daisy was having fun on the stone wall.
It took Gordon a little while to notice her!
That cooler is actually a little feral cat shelter we made last year. It's lined with straw and has an entrance cut in the side.
I wondered if Daisy's paw was cold in this photo?
Later, Buttercup and Daisy were on rodent patrol. I think they heard something scurrying across the top of the stone wall.
Buttercup also thought Gordon made a fine bed!
Then I got out a wand toy with a tiny stuffed tiger and the fun began. Daisy did NOT want to let go of her prey!
Redford and Pip are watching from the background. That's Mootie at the front left, and Honey on the right. Gordon got very comfortable in the straw. At one point, all seven cats were in there with us!
And here's some video of the action. I accidentally called Buttercup "Daisy" and Daisy "Buttercup" in there. Daisy has the white nose!
