The Big Piney Woods Cats

Hi, My Name Is Winter

and I am the newest member of The Big Piney Woods Cats. The Momma Lady I see in the cabin calls me Winter Ghost. (Ghost because I disappear a lot.) She doesn't know if I am a boy or a gurl. The only thing she does know is that I appeared one day in mid December, furry skinny and afraid, afore the big snows came , eating Mistrie's fud. She followed my toe prints a long way in the woods afore she turned around. I found the bed under the deck out back, and wud come to the front to eat after dark. Then the snow got so bad the Momma Lady made a path between the house and the huge snow bank. She had to bend ofur so she wouldn't hit her head on the roof. Efurryday she brought a big spoon and scooped the snow away from my insulated house and she put a feeding station up for me, so I didn't have to leave. The snows were so deep, I couldn't go anywhere. Mistrie kept checking on me though. (She followed the Momma Lady's path,) but she really doesn't like me much. Now the snow is crusted and hard and has melted down, so I am out and about, again. Momma Lady looked at me through the window and I looked back, furry nicely, curling my tail around my tosies. The calico with the big toes looked at me for a long time, too. I have seen two other cats in the cabin, but they don't pay me no mind.

~Winter Ghost~

Note from CalicoMom Toni......this is the first time I have seen Winter looks so at ease and happy, and in good shape. Gone is the terrible fear in her eyes. He/she is perfectly marked, with a raccoon tail. I have never seen Winter and Mistrie interact, although Mistrie will sit for hours, right where Winter is sitting. Mistrie re-marks everything daily. She loves the girls so much, I was hoping they would become good friends, she (Mistrie) seems so lonesome sometimes.

    I was a little bit worried about Winter, but I am so happy to see she is looking so good. I am glad you are looking out for her.

    We are glad Winter Ghost is doing so well. Our own visitor has been scarce, Momma was worried but she saw Maneki this morning on her way to day hunting. He/she almost ran in front of her car, but turned abound and went back to the sidewalk and watched momma. Momma thought about getting out but when ever she gets near, Maneki runs away and she didn't have any treats on her. Its bad storms today, we hope he is will come take advantage of our porch again if he has no where else to go. ~Queen Snickers
