As usual Whiskers (that cat that adopted us) was driving me crazy by scratching on the window begging for food yesterday morning. So that I wouldn't have to put up with his antics while trying to enjoy breakfast, I went out to feed him. The box with the cat food sits on the back porch next to the cat dish with a carton of magazines on top. Both had disappeared! This was the sight that met my eyes.
Usually, I expect to see this.
As I looked out into the darkness, I discovered the carton of magazines but couldn't see any sign of the box with the cat food. Spooky.
Later, after it got light enough to see, I searched again and found the food box about fifteen feet away from its usual location, upside down in the trees. The lid was nearby.
The food was still in the box. Whatever went to all that trouble to try to get the cat food must have been a very disappointed critter. What do you think was the mystery marauder? A herculean racoon? Hope your Halloween isn't quite so spooky!
Maybe these fall photos I took while on my walk last week will calm your fears.:)
The ward trunk or treat certainly got us in the Halloween spirit last night. We're looking forward to doing our traditional trick or treating tonight taking loaves of nut bread to friends and neighbors.
