Today's a soup day ........


It is cold outside - really, really cold - the coldest we've had in several years. They are predicting temperatures in the single digits tonight. Brr .... I just want to curl up under blankets and quilts and go to sleep until spring arrives.


Everytime we get really cold weather or it snows, I want some good homemade soup. I made a big pot of vegetable beef this morning. Every so often, I go out and get a bowl. At the rate it's going, it will be gone by tomorrow.


I've been keeping Mazie Grace in the garage because it's just too cold outside for her. She's not too happy about being confined out there by herself. She is fine when I'm out there with her, and she is getting attention. As soon as I go back in the house, she starts crying. She wants to come in, but everytime Maggie May catches a glimpse of her at the door, the hissing begins. I don't need a cat fight.

This is a picture of Mazie Grace hoping the door will open so she can go inside with the people. She is a very affectionate cat and loves to be petted. She also tends to wrap around your legs, so you have to walk carefully around her.

Your soup looks so good! And Mazie Grace is a beautiful girl. I hope that eventually your girls will get used to each other so Mazie G. can spend some time inside.

It's really cold here also. Should get up over freezing tomorrow.

Carla,
I will try to introduce the cats very slowly. I'm hoping they can coexist by ignoring each other. The vet was not very encouraging. He said two grown female calicos will never be friends.

Oh boy, it doesn't sound like this is going to be easy. Get the boxing gloves out and get out of the way. Well, hopefully it won't be that bad and that they can prove the vet to be wrong this time. Good luck...

Hi, enjoying your blog. And that soup looks yummy!

Have you introduced the kitties yet? I've introducted lots of cats in the past, some got along, some didn't. As you noted, it's important to take it slowly and give them their own space (food bowls, litterboxes, sleeping spots). And be sure to give them each a lot of people attention, especially the cat who was there first. You don't want her to feel she's being replaced!

Best of luck. Keep us posted.
