I put this on before but wanted to do it again. This is Emmie’s house. She has an electric heated bed on the porch and two soft cushy beds, on top of each other, in the other room. My son-in-law sawed a small opening in the side so if she was attacked, she could get out. Cats ALWAYS need two doors. There are two chairs, holding up the three heavy duty outdoor tarps that cover the area. So she has snug places to sleep and she’s off the cement. There’s a cat scratcher under there as well. The second picture is what her house looked like this morning. It has since snowed some more. Her door is at the far left and hits the ground so she never gets any wind, or cold air. It drives me crazy that she won’t come inside, but she’s firm about that. This is her 6th winter with me and I know when I’m beaten. Anyway…she’s doing fine but I know how much she misses doing her patrol everyday. She’s a guard cat and this is her territory. She can’t go anywhere at all, I think we have 16-19 inches.

I just came in from feeding Em and I can’t believe how fast the snow is piling up. The flakes are huge. Best packing I’ve EVER seen. Snowpeople would be a breeze but I couldn’t keep up with it. I brushed off her house three times in ten minutes and it’s supposed to keep snowing until noon tomorrow. We will be buried, if it doesn’t slow down. I can’t remember it ever falling this fast or piling up so quickly. It really is gorgeous but a nightmare. If you look at the snow and notice the spots on top that’s from the flakes coming down so fast they are making marks on the snow that’s already there!
