Well it was snowing this morning, we've got maybe an inch. It's been a very long time since we had a decent snow. I'm still hoping for one. A stray cat adopted us a little over a year ago. She likes to be outside and doesn't get along with our inside cat. I feed the birds during the winter and I was concerned about her catching them. We put bells on her collar and my husband made me this wonderful bird feeder - large enough for many birds at once! Don't worry, Tiger the stray cat (has been spayed) and has a cat door to a small room I keep heated in the winter for my plants.
