I built them a nice warm insulated cat house under the front porch to keep them warm and dry .I hate when my neighbors get animals and get animals and let them starve .I turned them in again because the chihuahua they got looks starved and comes over here to get food .After not seeing her for a week she came over and I could see her back bones sticking up and her ribs .How horrible can people be .

Nice new ramp looks great! Glad to hear you are keeping and taking such good care of the cats. Poor pup, I don't know what else you can do for her if animal control can't. Just keep feeding her or maybe offer to buy her from the owners. Then you can keep her or find her a better home.

I offered to take her when animal control comes to get her ,but they need to fix her .Cooked her up chicken and she is getting fatter .But animal control took pics of her 2 weeks ago but could not catch her .I told them I feed her every time she comes over here but that is all I can do to keep her somewhat healthy .You can see some of her back bone but at least not as bad as what animal control saw and took pics of then .They know I feed her.The color the people got her I can see is way to tight but she won't let me near her to adjust it .she has had warm chicken for 5 days now

ramp is getting done .I love the projects I do and glad people get to enjoy my work . I like my side step up decks so I don't have to climb the ramp to get up there ..I am going to have someone put in a side door and windows for me .I bought the door and windows at habitat for 5 dollars each .They have to be put in properly and metal has to be cut and supports welded in which is beyond me .Mac just put them in his metal building he built ,so he owes me so payback now .Happy for the warmer weather to get some of this done

Looks good Sissy! We have been so lucky to have warmer winter and I have only had to heat my pond for two whole daya this whole winter! Warmest winter since I have been running ponds so far. Even the guppies outside are happy!

Well not so warm today with the wind .It says 40 today but with wind chill feels like 20 degrees .But at least the sun is out .I saw your video's on you tube and your mom looks great .I tried to keep up there when I had the chance too .I had so many e-mails waiting to be read and had no real time for them

Temps diving here sissy, saying snow tomorrow. 60 on Tuesday, 29 today.

Real life can take over forums and emails, happens to me too.

how true .I have 4 half done projects waiting to get done and shed insulation needs done ,but I got the trench dug for the new electric .It was at least easy to do with the wet soil .I have seen some flowers already .I guess they were fooled by the warmer weather .I have seen shoots for my banana plants and hoping that it does not get to much colder .I buried them in more mulch and hoping for the best

I don't know how you do it Addy ,traveling remodeling and the pond and bees .I can't keep up as it is .I guess if ZI had help it would be a little easier .I even had to put 4x4's in the trench for the electric to keep it open .I ran the wire but can't close it up until it is inspected and that is put on hold for i don't know how long
