Andy and I wake up to light snow yesterday morning.
I call him over to the open door. He is hesitant, yet curious. What’s beyond the door?
Cold and (maybe) that cat, the little tuxedo that comes around…? What?
Andy needs reassurance.
“That was scary, Doug. I’m just a little kitty.”
A big bird sits outside the front door….
Oh so much snow, it seems Christmas 🙂
Besst of all, it wasn’t anywhere close to as much as predicted! Had it snowed as much as predicted, there would have been six or seven inches (15-18cm) covering everything! My car probably would have struggled to get through that.
oh, sure it’s not nice to be shoveling snow. Here in my country it never arrives, only in the mountains it snows, but it is very cold and soon it should be spring but unfortunately this climate is strange. The land is dry, during the winter it did not rain. The lawn is dry, there are no flowers and the land is barren. it’s very sad.
I try to think of the snow that way – moisture for the future cro9ps and flowers.
I’m with you, Andy. Time for the snow to move on
We have sporadic snows up through May, though they become rarer and tend to melt within hours.
It snowed last night, but it’s supposed to be gone by Sunday
The best kind of snow, eh?!
The bird with a snow cap is cute, but Mr Andy’s baffled expression is priceless. Even huge and fearless Vassily I grew up with had never ventured onto the balcony, if it was even drizzled with snow. Thankfully, it was a very rare occasion in Odessa.
He is fascinated with snow, but not enough to venture out into it.
he is smart; I would also not venture into snow. We cats don’t like it.
It’s cold and wet! Ick!
I like the bird. It’s very quiet.
Yeah, it’s one of my favorite pots!
A change in their world is indeed frightening for them at times. Good thing you are there to protect Andy from the Big Bird in the snow, Doug! 🙂
Yes, I should get special consideration by Andy for my service! LOL!
Outside is beyond the range of his kingdom, Andy is afraid to go beyond the threshold! ❤️😻
So it5 seems. His brother was the exact opposite.
Dougy was a sweet boy too. ❤️
Yes, he was a very sweet kitty boy!
Has Andy ever felt the snow?
Just what I track in on my shoes and the snow that blows in through the cracks in the outer door. He sniffs and licks it.
Light snow?? That’s enough to bring England to an abrupt stop!
Or the US South! Of course, the South often has rain preceding the snow, so you have a skating rink for motor vehicles then. Where I live, one usually don’t have the rain first.
Not sure there is any such thing as ‘light’ snow to cats!
That’s right! When you are so tall and the snow is slightly less so deep…Yipes!
oh my big birds are scary… close da door and spend this cold day on da couch ;O)
Sounds like a good plan!
He does look scared
I’m not certain why he reacts to the door the way he does, though the bird planter seems a potential answer. The tuxedo kitty is a scaredy cat, so Andy is frightening to it.
