My chard seeds survived the snow and drought. The only moisture that we've had is the snow and with temps getting down to 30, I can't keep the hose hooked up, so I didn't think I'd watered enough. I'd be surprised if your potatoes and carrots didn't make it.
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."
As long as the soil doesn't freeze, I think your potatoes and carrot seeds will be alright. Once the snow melts again (which shouldn't take too long at this time of year, unless you got a foot of the stuff!) give it some time and see what comes up!
How about covering it with a floating row cover until your plants take over the bed. The cat will use it as long as there's open soil. I believe there are some organic things you can sprinkle on that is supposed to deter them but I don't know if they're safe for vegetable gardens.
I don't know about the carrots and potatoes. The same thing happened to me - snow after a very hot week. It hasn't warmed up enough for me to go out and check. My bed was covered with a row cover but I forgot all about the potatoes which were planted in bags. I'm guessing that they're mush.
