Jerry returned this afternoon! He's our outside cat; he used to come up every morning for food. Last Saturday we had the big snowstorm, and Jerry didn't come back until this afternoon, Wednesday.
Here he comes on the right, making it thru snow that's almost as high as him. The clear spot, where there is no snow, was where one of our cars used to sit.
He made it onto the front porch.
He's looking intently for that food bowl.
We gave him canned food, and dry catfood, and fresh water. He was HUNGRY.
Jerry gives us one last look of thanks before he gobbles his food.
I know he's a tough old tomcat, but I really don't think he goes anywhere else for food. Before we used to feed him we noticed many birds used to die around our bird feeders. Also we used to see him hunting mice, snakes, other small animals (like moles), and larger animals (like woodchucks!) around the property. He belongs here, he was here before us. We made a deal with him ~ we feed him, he takes care of our property. I'm glad he returned.
