Mike and I had a tragedy this weekend. Friday evening Black Kitty was outside playing. Around 7:30 p.m. it started to snow. Mike wanted the pets all inside because it was going to be another cold night, and with more snow on the ground this time. They usually come running when we call them, but Black Kitty didn't come. Of course, he'd only been outside about 20 minutes, and Mike thought he heard him meow. I walked the yard, checked the field, and even searched the nieghbor's yard a couple of times, but to no avail. Mike walked inside, but I thought I better walk the front yard. That's when I saw the lump on the road. In just a short amount of time some fool had hit and killed Black Kitty. The road I live on is less than a quarter of a mile, and it was a black cat against a white snow-covered road. How screwed up is that?! Mike was pretty upset because Black Kitty would curl up next to him on the bed to sleep at night. But Black Kitty is no longer with us. :(
On a lighter note, we had a nice V Day. Nothing special. There were no flowers, no chocolates, no cards. We didn't go out to dinner or even have anything fancy at home (breakfast for dinner). Instead, we spent Sunday afternoon finishing a chicken coop that Mike had built for the blue splash silkies. Their current home is the old duck pen, and it's starting to fall apart. It turned out pretty nice! I just forgot to take pictures. I'll get some this week to post later.
Most of the snow has melted, and it's pushing 50 degrees today. I'm hoping it's the last of the snow. Even if it doesn't warm up right away, I'm at least ready for daylight savings time.
