For the third consecutive Sunday, southern Alberta experienced a snowfall. The results have already melted, due to a strong Chinook wind. But there is a prediction of more snow to come this weekend. Sunday was a cold, wet, blustery day - but the cats were warm and snug inside. When I see the beasts curled up snoozing while the weather shakes its fist harmlessly outside, it makes me feel good. I know that there are people and animals who don’t have such shelter, but these ones are secure enough to take their comfort for granted. I don’t resent that. I delight in their obliviousness to danger and harm. It means that whatever else I may be doing or not doing, I’m achieving something for these six.
