Living On The Wild Side

Living on the Wild Side

My son's Boxer Mix Reina lived with me for several weeks during his transition. Now my daughter's Manx cat Max is living with me during her transition. I sometimes feel I am running a safe house for animals.

With the heavy snow during the past week my lawn has become a map of the travels of at least a couple of different species. I can see the tracks of a couple of Fox across the snow. They are probably looking for small mammals or slightly larger domestic cats. I can also see the tracks of the Coyotes as they search for food during the night. One set of tracks led to a larger group near my house and it looks like they played and rolled in the snow for a while. I guess they were staying up late to live on the wild side. g
