There will be no outside walks today – we have a nice rainy day ahead. No complaints here. You know what I’ll be doing all day – yep, visiting all my fave nap spots (other than Mom’s lap because she’s going to the dentist this morning).
I thought about that little fox I saw yesterday morning and wondered if he was all snuggled in somewhere in the woods with his Mom this morning. I hope so. Some of you worried he might have been lost or on his own somehow but let’s hope he was just on an early morning outing with Mom close by. The woods in our backyard begins pretty close to the house and Mom could have been right there near the firewood pile where the baby was and we wouldn’t have seen her. Yep – let’s ASSUME that OK?
I guess it’s not easy for animals out there who don’t have humans taking care of them…..although my Mom does her part with our three bird feeders; which are deer/bear/squirrel/groundhog feeders too… 🙂 🙂 But there are sooooo many deer this year and almost every time Mom drives anywhere around here she sees them in open fields or in people’s front yards or – sadly – on the side of the road having met with someone’s front bumper. There are a lot of deer right around here because two houses down from ours is a small pond (which they call a lake). So the deer have shelter in the woods and water and all the greenery to eat along with a nice mix of sunflower seeds courtesy of the birds!
Anyway, I guess my mind is wandering a bit this morning – here I sit looking out my window in my nice warm and cozy house and there are a LOT of animals out there looking for a shelter from the rain and wondering where their next meal is coming from. All I have to do is hop down and wander over to my food station and eat!
I’m lucky……………and spoiled…………as you well know!
