last night I was dumping money down the sink...figuratively, not literally.
when I came home last night, there was an unknown cat laying in our driveway, he took off into the bushes and shadows. so is he a lost stray? a new neighbor cat I don't know? I have no idea but I know it was freaking cold!
I call out to him, he answers back..i ask him to come to me, but he stays hidden where I can't see.
I tried for quite a while to get him to take a risk but he wouldn't. and I can't just walk away from a possibly lost and cold cat without giving him some kind of chance for a better opportunity.
so I go into the shop and open up the garage door a few inches..i set up some food and water bowls and a nice bed right inside of the doors. and I crank up the heat so he can find some warmth, even tho I know most of it is going back out the open garage door.
if that cat didn't come in, I guess at least some not so shy rat, appreciated the open door, warm bed and dinner laid out for him.
hopefully at least some cold and hungry creature got the benefit of our increased heating bill last night.
lets be honest...I am biased....I do hope it was that cat that I just wasted a whole nights shop heat on last night.
