There isn’t much to do these cold winter days except to curl up on the couch with a good book. But the moment you get up to go to the bathroom, the cat steals your spot.

Somehow, when the rest of Michigan is sick and tired of snow, Ozzy can’t seem to get enough of it.

February is Wild Bird Feeding Month, and with how rough of a winter we’re all having this year, we’re sure our feathered friends will appreciate any extra help they can get!

On top of the satisfaction that comes with doing a good deed, you’ll also be able to enjoy taking a moment to just sit back and watch the birds. Plus, you might be surprised by the other visitors that come along for the free eats. (I know a lot of people get mad with the squirrels when they eat out of bird feeders, but they gotta eat too, so I say the more the merrier!) My parents’ neighbor has been feeding the local birds, squirrels, and ducks every single day for decades now and I’m sure it’s helped see them through some pretty tough winters.

If you’ve got kids, why not get them in on the fun too by teaching them how to make bird feeders of their own? They’re really easy, and I know I loved making them when I was a kid. There are lots of different ways to make DIY bird feeders, but the easiest one I remember doing just required a pine cone, peanut butter, bird seeds, and string. All you have to do is spread the peanut butter over the pine cone and then roll it in the seeds. Then just string it up somewhere for the birds. Trust me, the birds and your kids will both be happy! 🙂

We’ve all heard the saying: “If the groundhog sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, there will be an early spring”.

Well, with all this frigid weather making everyone so miserable, that’s a lot of pressure on a little groundhog…

Hope you guys are all staying warm! We’re sure plenty of you are cozy indoors ready for the Super Bowl (or Puppy Bowl if you’re anything like us!) Expect a bunch of posts from us this month. Apparently February is full of animal-related holidays and traditions, and we’re looking forward to talking about a bunch of them!!
