Felix watching for mice friends in the snow

Buster in the sunshine
Only -15C., he is a brave little one. The days are getting colder. I didn't take them out until the late morning, when things had warmed up a tad. What *is* the difference between -18 and -15? Not much, actually! The sun was a blessing in the front room.

On one of the coldest days this winter, Felix and Buster went out to play. Felix was keep watch beside the stone bridge (mice friends). Buster was watching the birds. Buster wanders over under the other pine tree and stares into the grassy knoll.

Turns out his deer friends were out there. Then the turkeys turned up!
The turkeys weren't happy with me!

Scraping under the bird feeder for crumbs
they tolerate one another

I love our visitors. A deer stood outside under the tree for a half hour, she had a sign 'won't work for food'!
At -18 C. this morning, she just stood there. Buster hid under the porch, fascinated.

You really chose a fascinating place to live with all the wildlife around. How do you get any work done with all the stuff to watch?

Oh my gosh! I can't believe your turkeys. That is just so cool. I don't think I've ever seen turkeys in the wild.

Wild turkeys! I've never seen wild turkeys, although we get lots of deer.
And I love your cats.
