It’s finally winter—and I’m chilly! I’m so grateful tonight for a warm house for myself, my hub, my animals, and my part-time kiddos. There’s a collar-less calico kitty that I’ve been seeing outside more and more lately, and she was near our yard when I got home tonight. She must be so cold. I’m trying to befriend her so that maybe I can find out if she actually belongs to someone or not, but she is very wary and runs the other way. I think sometimes she sleeps under our porch. She and countless other homeless animals and people are on my mind tonight, as we snuggle up inside.
