The short days mean some of the feral cats often don't get to eat enough before nightfall, and I leave some out for them later, but the short days also mean the raccoons come around earlier and if they find cat food they eat it. That happened tonight. And the Internet ate most of my day, leaving me nothing to show for it.
The Internet is a raccoon!
And the raccoons have had their dinner but I haven't I have to go fix something now. Maybe tomorrow the Internet/raccoon will leave me more time.
