Not a creature was stirring, except a vole. A vole was stirring on the front screen porch and Barney (our cat) noticed him. The vole had squeezed under the screen door and was looking for a warm spot. I brought Barney in but the next morning Barney spotted the vole again.
In came Barney and we skirted the vole under the door. I hope he made it without too much trauma or injury. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
