I was on the computer this morning when Macey started scratching really, really hard
on the front window.
I leaned back in my chair to see what she was freaked out about.
Right there in the front bushes of my house was a
cute grey cat. Awww...
So I jumped up & ran outside in my pj's to see if I could get it to
come to me.
I was totally thinking that I could catch this stray cat & keep it for Christmas.
Then I noticed the short tail.
And the white scruffy around its face.
That's a BOBCAT!
(BTW - I didn't take this pic - but I wish I did!)I watched it scamper across the street when another one came from the
area near the back of our house, near the side yard.
They weren't very big - I think they must've been young.
First I called "Here Kitty-Kitty"
but that scared it & it started to run away.
Then it came back to meet up with the first little guy I saw.
I made a 'kissing' noise & it acted like it might come to me!
I panicked & made a quick movement
that sent the two of them running into the woods behind the house.
I almost had a really cool Christmas gift for Madison.

He has a cyst growing under his eyelid that is giving him some grief.
He's going to have it removed & we decided to get his
teeth cleaned too since he'll be anesthetized (i spelled that without looking it up!).
I don't know quite what to expect with this teeth cleaning thing.
Seems awfully expensive - please comment if you think it's worth it.
When I got home from work tonight there was no one here. Just the dogs.
I've had a lot on my mind lately & it seems like my mind never rests. Which wears me out.
Jared & Dillon are each at work and Howie & Scott are busy. Madison's at a friend's house.
Here are the books I'm currently reading to help me re-group & re-prioritize. I've had these books for years and remember gleaning some valuable insight from them. They are really helping me... again. I should take advantage of this quiet time & read, but I rarely find time to update here. Hmmm...
