Good Afternoon Everyone!!!!! It is a cold snowy day here. We have about 5 inches so far and it is still coming down. I have been out shoveling most of the day just trying to keep things clear. I don't really have anything else planned for today. I might sneak a nap in before dinner. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

He isn't an outdoor cat, and it was well below freezing las night, we drove around looking for him, but no luck. Now we are just hopeful that he finds his way back home. There are a lot of strays in our neighborhood too, quite a few hang out at our neighbor's house and our house, we don't think he got into a fight with any of them though. I keep looking out the window hoping to see him walking up to the house.

We have had freezing temperatures all night with wind chills in the single digits. He is not use to this since he has been indoors for several years. We have a serious stray dog and cat problem around here so he is mixed in with them all right now. I just hope he is ok. I didn't sleep well last night hoping he will return. This is the very first time he has escaped.

My son is worried sick. He had an assignment for school that is due today and had trouble concentrating on getting it done.

Please say a prayer for his safe return. =(

Edit: I didn't realize Wayne already posted about this. I just woke up. Last night we didn't know how it got broke but as of this morning it makes sense to me that my cats broke it.
I hope your kitty returns soon safe and sound. Please keep us updated!

Good afternoon friends! I will be off of work in 15 minutes. We were suppose to get snow and still may get some but it has changed from 5-8 inches to 1-2 inches, now 3-5 inches. I wouldnt mind a day off of work tomorrow so please let it snow "enough"! My Christmas decorations came down this past weekend. This week is better then last but Im still longing for some Christmas. I wasnt ready for it to be over with yet. Im looking forward to starting my lists and hopefully I will start buying gifts by May. Everyone stay warm and safe!

I worry about him whenever he has to have medical procedures done. He's on immunosupressive drugs to prevent rejection of the kidney I gave him a few years ago. It seems like every time he goes to the doctor, he comes back sicker than when he went. All we can do is pray this helps more than it hurts, I guess.

I lighter news, I think our town beautification group has enough money to buy some year-round pole banners. Everytime we take down the Christmas banners, Main St. looks so bare. I was thinking something like, "Welcome to Historic Bellville". Or maybe some Fall banners?

I hope you all have a great day!
Brad, I hope your brother is feeling better soon !! Your ideas for your town as far as the banners sounds really nice !!

Louie wore bells on her collar and my sister hears them everyday since her passing. A sure sign that our pets are still with us.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Our kitty came home! I had a feeling he might but my mind wanders in the wrong direction and I always fear the worst.

I am so happy he is here.
