Ralph is a top-notch barn cat, but she’s become a bit… soft.
This winter, as soon as HRH deemed the temperature too cold and the snow too deep, she retreated to the barn and refused to venture outside.
As a result of her hibernation, we had our first rabbits this spring. Two of them living behind the barn.
The snow is now mostly gone, so Ralph is outside again and the rabbits are also gone. She hasn’t gotten that soft.
But then last weekend the snow returned. It fell all night from Saturday into Easter Sunday.
HRH poked her head out of the barn.
She looked to the left and the right.
She paused for a moment to consider.
And she retreated back into the barn.
Oh, Ralphie. You’re such a tough barn cat.
At least the Easter bunny was safe.
