When we woke up this morning, our house smelled like SKUNK. Now, living in the country, that does occasionally happen. But when I opened the door to the outside porch, the odor was unusually strong. One look at the CAT told me why.
With outside temperatures currently at freezing, it's not a very opportune time to give an OUTSIDE cat a bath. (For that matter, when is it EVER time to give an outside cat a bath??)
My 8yo son just said, "Don't put that [picture] on there! It's MEAN!" But even meaner? The cat's now adult children, her usual cold-weather snuggling companions, seem to be shunning her. And who'd blame them.
Smelly cats...isn't there an educational opportunity in here somewhere???
When we weren't contemplating skunks this week, we:
*did some I SPY artwork with shapes
*considered how big Mommy's feet are and did some estimating and measuring with her "feet"
*read about giants and estimated and measured with giant feet
*measured with tile and headstrings
*considered whether a candy bar coupon was a good deal
If you'd like to share about your week, or give me smelly outdoor cat advice, please comment! :)
