Dougy’s having snow day blahs…
“Will a good skritching help, kitty?” I ask. Did I mention I opened the door so the kitty boys could see the blizzard? Dougy, of course, sneaked out and I had to step out into the snow to retrieve him. I think that’s why he’s blue. He was having a good snoop when I ended his fun!
We know a good skritching works well on Andy!
All red roads are closed because of the blizzard.
Dougy, that stuffs is cold and wet and nothing you want on your furrs!
If only he listened…! (Whern I get out of the shower, he realizes there’s a possibility of getting that stuff on him, so he runs away as soon as the door opens! (Yes, two cats sit outside the door while I shower! LOL!)
I guess Dougy likes the snow 🙂
He is highly enthusiastic! Of course, the kitty boys have thick coats that repel melting snow for a longer time than I’m willing to let Dougy snoop around outside.
I heard everyone over that way is having yet another snowmageddon! Good day to stay inside with the boys and roast marshmallows by the fire!
That pretty well describes it. Where I live, we got lots of snow, but large parts of the state and region affected by the blizzard also had major flooding. Of course, many towns and cities in the eastern part of the state were built along rivers and creeks. On the western end, we werre able to tap the Ogallala Aquifer, so typically didn’t build as often where floods might occur. (As soon as I wrote that, I thought about three towns out here on the Platte river!)
well Spring isn’t too far away I suspect but than with all that snow that means flooding season. You have three seasons……snowing season,flooding season and growing season.
We had rain before the blizzard. Because the ground was still frozen, the rain wasn’t absorbed into the earth. Since the eastern part of the state gets two, three times more preciptation than the western end, they have major flooding along with the snow.
yes,this time of year can be a wet one. I bet the boys don’t like getting their paws wet!
as just about all cats…….unless your a Tiger or Cougar! Many large cats swim.
Seems odd that any do, but domestic kitties like fish. Perhaps it is an ativistic thing since any cat I can think of gets really excited over tuna, though they’d die before getting into water~!
this might shed some light on the subject.

Thanks for the link! That was half-way familiar, which is to say, I learned things, too! Persian kitty fur soaks up water like a sponge, and takes a long time to dry out. During that time, the kitties are trying to groom it away. That I know from when the kitty boys were kittens with a medicval issue that caused them diarrhea. Ugh! They hated baths to get the poop out of their tail feathers, and I dreaded having to give them poop baths! These days, I leave the baths to their groomers, where one person is trained to bathe cats and dogs in a proper pet bath. They are dried afterwards with a hair dryer suitable for pets, and (I find it hard to believe!) reportedly are good kitty boys when they go through this ordeal.
Go to :30 in to get to the story. Without having to watch the whole thing, you can see what they look like and what they do when drying out within a few seconds of the video.
Dougy loves the adventure in the snow and in the wind . The problem is for you ,Doug . I Hope you wore good shoes ! Ah: Dougy the Intrepid!
I’m terrible about wearing shoes unless I have to go to town or something outside the house. For brief steps outside the house to pick up Dougy, I more likely than not am barefooted!
You’ll have to find a video of falling snow for Dougy now. 🙂
I do t=have those of the kitty boys by the door watchiung the snow…!
Such crazy weather up there this year, wow! Definitely stay indoors boys!
No choice, actually!
The snow looked so pretty my buddy had to get into it – you big meanie. 🙂
Hey, itf he wanders too far outside, I have to “rescue” him, and it was too intense to go outsidfe in my underwear and barefoot!
Good grief! Stay snug with the kitties!
I’m nice and cosy and have nlo reason to leave the house today! Thanks!
I’m f=doing jusdt that!@ It’s supposed to ease up by midday, and the snow rtemoval people should be ablke to start dealing with the snow on the lanes at least. I will clear the walk to my duplex later, perhaps tomorrow morning, after the blowing and snowing’s done.
snow much fun ;O) but we hope miss spring will visit the kitty boyz soon…
This time of year, the weather is crazy. The forecast for Friday and the weekend sounds like springtime again. The snow should melt fairly fast.
There is enough snowe to make some really fine flowers!
