Welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we’re always very happy when you stop by. I know you know this, but every Thursday we tell everyone about the things for which we are most thankful and today is no exception. We all love it when you join us for our blog hop and we really get excited when we see new blogger pals hopping in for the first time. Your thankfuls always make us smile!
Today I’m thankful for light, or I probably should say lights, and lots of them. Let me set the scene for you. First, you know we have a feral family of about 9 or so special kitties. In the wee hours of the morning Wednesday, around 3:30 AM, I heard something out back. I hauled butt to the bedroom and took Sisters Dolly and Zoe with me. Something was out back and it was making a strange noise. We have a riding mower out back with a cover over it. Something was making a ripping noise around the cover. Honestly, I think it was a coyote after one of our feral family who likely took cover under the riding mower.
I woke up the Mom who woke up the Dad but by the time they looked out whatever it was left. Wednesday morning when the Dad went out to feed the ferals their breakfast he immediately noticed the mower cover was ripped and had a great big hole in it. We did see our ferals so they are fine, but this will never do. The Dad spent lots of time yesterday putting up some more bright spotlights. Hopefully that will help since those predators usually don’t like areas with bright lights. We’ll all be on guard, especially the Dad, he won’t stand for that at all. Let’s just say he only has to see one of them once.
So, I’m thankful we’re able to try something else to help ensure that our feral family is safe. What about you? What are you thankful for today? Tell me in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
