One of my barn kitties, Albert, is mostly white with a few black patches. Lately he has been parking himself under Mom’s bird feeders when the weather is mild. He blends in with the snow quite nicely. While no one has witnessed any bird murders, Mom has not been happy about the situation. If I happen to notice Albert doing a vigil I try to chase him away before Mom notices him.
I had just finished chores yesterday and was taking off my boots when I noticed black and white movement outside the window. I was about to tap on the glass when I realized that it wasn’t Albert!
When the skunks start coming out of hibernation, spring can’t too far away.
