Hungry Cat After the Snow
MEET OZZIE -- SHE IS GONNA BE HUNGRY
Food Dish Almost Empty
Kansas was experiencing a major snow storm and the first wave had came thru leaving perhaps 10 inches of snow on the ground. The snow in its innocent white had drifted higher in places. Ozzie's cat dish was near empty.
Yes, I had forgotten to bring cat food into the house when I made preparations for the storm. But I had put the snow shovel inside,
knowing that my door would be nearly blocked by the snow.
Here is where I am headed.
I don't really want to sit here today.
There's the milk can by the door I headed for.
A perfect wall of snow when I open the door and stand inside.
I scoop up the cat food.
My neighbor's truck doesn't want to start.
Challenges and obstacles
During a winter storm there are challenges and obstacles to feeding my "Ozzie cat". Others have more challenging obstacles to overcome. I look across the street thru the snow in the air and I see the raised hood of his white truck. My neighbor is a farmer/rancher and I imagine he is wanting to feed his hungry cattle so his truck must be started in the bitter-cold weather.
My door latch falls off.
I hear a clinking on the cement floor, look down, and see the door latch lying there. Some problems can be ignored for now: my "Ozzie cat" will soon be hungry and depends on me to return to her food dish.
Back to my snow shovel.
I will follow my own footsteps.
The snow is heavy and I decided not to shovel a path.
Back inside my home
My warm home beckons me.
