But no, sadly. Today is cold as ever. Even freezing rain was once again predicted for the valley and Portland. I ignored the warnings, and headed out this morning early to Salem with two cats to be fixed.
I trapped them yesterday at a Tangent trailer park. Took all day to get the two unfixed ones, and lots of back and forths to check traps and let out Mystic, at one point, because she is already fixed.
I trapped two of the teens back in November. They were both girls. I named them Mystic and Flanders, but the caretaker has other names for them.
The mom cat, strangely, is a long hair Siamese. She is gorgeous and likely once was owned. The woman feeding her is taking her inside her house this evening, once home from the clinic, in hopes of turning her into a house cat.
I caught the final teen late in the afternoon. She calls him Molly, but I think Molly is a boy. So on the records I fill out for the clinic, I changed it to Mister Molly. The Siamese is called simply Mama C.
|Mama C is gorgeous!|
|Mister Molly. I'm betting he's a boy!|
No freezing rain at least today, but the ground is still frozen and it is still cold and so far, no torrential downpours either. It's hard to know what to expect. Sometimes it seems like the weather people are full of drama and long for severe weather. But then they did miss the forecast on how much snow Portland would really get last week, by about 8 inches! So under stated forecasts and over stated forecasts have left me in a state of predicting local weather by walking outside.
