Tomorrow is the *official* first day of Spring. (Although, no-one seems to have told the weather that fact) We had a few days of 'warm'ish' weather and then snow.
... And you know what those crazy Sisfurs of mine did? They went out in the snow!
Not just once, but twice. They willingly went out and had themselves some type of fun out there.
The last time it snowed (before last night) those girls went out on the back porch and down into the yard. The first one out was T̶h̶e̶ ̶S̶m̶a̶c̶k̶y̶ ̶P̶a̶w̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶F̶u̶r̶y̶ (ooops, sorry about that, I meant Sweets)
T̶h̶e̶ ̶S̶m̶a̶c̶k̶y̶ ̶P̶a̶w̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶F̶u̶r̶y̶ (yeah, alright... Sweets) mostly just stayed up on the upper porch making little tripod pawprints in the light snow coating. Gabby, however started to wander down the porch steps and almost made her way onto the grass of the yard.
Are you wondering what *I* was doing during all of this? I stayed comfortably and firmly on the sofa - indoors!
Yeah, that's right, I knew where it was warm and where there was no wet snow falling on my back furs and where my paw leathers were dry and toasty. I once lived outside, I had had enough of inclement 'weather' back then.
Duh, that's why I agreed to become an "indoor" guy. (Well, it's one of the reasons why anyway - Food [obviously] would be another reason)
So, last night it snows again and again the Sisfurs want to go out. They willingly wanted to repeat a behavior that I can see no *reward* in repeating. My Angel opened the back door and out they went into the snow. ALL. THE. GIRLS. Isn't that crazy?
U.N.O and I (and the 'tasty morsel boys') stayed inside. - Guys are smart!
It wasn't too long before the girls all came back inside. My Angel was shivering (I guess so.... being furless and all)
and T̶h̶e̶ ̶S̶m̶a̶c̶k̶y̶ ̶P̶a̶w̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶F̶u̶r̶y̶ ok, ok - Sweets and Gabby were all excited and flush with their adventure(s). I listened to their silly girlish chatter.
"oooh, wasn't that fantastic?" "I hope we can do that again!" "What do I have this thick fur for if not to play in the snow?" "I love how the snow seems to make everything sparkle and glow!"
Alright, I'll admit it... Their chatter did, kind of, maybe, sort of, almost, make the snow seem "like fun". When the U.N.O got up to go to the kitchen I followed him and asked if I might also go outside. He opened the door for me, I went to take a step onto the porch and said "NO". The snow was right there, piling up. I would have had to *gasp* step in it.
No, no, no and another time no!
I backed up and the U.N.O laughed at me and said "Hmmm, I didn't think you'd want to go out once you saw the snow."
He closed the door and I curled up again on the sofa, content in the warmth of my knowledge that the girls are clearly out of their minds.
I touched snow once. Once was enough.
Please send the snow a few miles south to us!
We think Sweets is a misnomer! MOL!
happy Hazel Lucy
I'm with you, guy. No outside stuff for me. I simply don't have the fur for it.....doing my best Conan the Barbarian impression:
Crom!!!! I have never prayed to you before.....I haven't the tongue for it....but if don't help me now.....well, to hell with you then!
yeah, bring out the chicken fish and Guiness!
Not all girls are wacky! I am not going out there in the snow either. Especially as it is (according to meowmie) "like wet concrete" -- not the soft fluffy sparkly stuff at all. Sigh. We had crocuses for two days and then it dropped to 23 degrees, so I'm with you Nuk--inside where I'm warm, dry and well petted.
I'm with you. I stood on the threshold of the back door last night, saw the snow and turned around. I would not step out.
Just more proof that girl cats are crazy. My sisfur just quit eating for No reason for 2 weeks. Got hospitalized and everything. Stopped eating!!!! I say, Isn't that the craziest thing you ever heard??
Mancats rock!! headbunks to ya buddy...
Our human mom's mom used to say it always snows around basketball sectional & finals times, even when the weather has been warm prior to that.
Don't know snow. Don't want to....
Please ask Sweets and Gabby to call me the next time they want to play in the snow. I LIVE to play in the snow! And in my house, I'm the crazy one, too....
