This 30 second video is of my cat Zeke, a Maine Coon, in the catio in the rain. He is the only cat that goes out in the rain. Many times he comes inside soaking wet! The noise in the background is falling rain.
There was a gale at night–a nights gale–or could it be a “nighting gale?” It has not been so cold, and the boys really want to go out into the catio in the morning. They wait by the window for me to get out of bed for whatever reason at night. The best way to have peace is for me to just open it and go back to sleep. I check the structure regularly and although it is very old it is still solid. The camera flash illuminates them. When I look out it is so dark I cannot see them or anything else. The camera reveals. What they see only they know, and they are not telling. There is a small stand of tall pines behind the house which is shelter to birds and small animals. The girls do not seem to be interested in going out much any more, especially not at night in the cold and rain..
A Personal Note
For the first time ever, I tell you dear Readers that I am having difficulties continuing this blog. I have been doing this since 2013 on WordPress. Doubts happen to everyone, I know, for different reasons. Things seem to be changing here, but I cannot say how or why. There are no health issues. I am very distracted from this to say the least. I plan to try to keep up the pace.
Zeke’s Fireside Chat is the last post of 2017.
Since I am the Editor-in-Chief, I decided to take over the fireside chat from Opie. She is a bit hissy and swatty about it, but she will get over it. Christmas passed pleasantly with no bad surprises and some snow! We like to celebrate 12 days and keep at least some but not all of our decorations up through the 6th of January.
A couple days before Christmas, Marigold slipped into the garage secretly, and when she came out, she had a hurt leg and was limping around. Went to the vet, who said she was not serious and should heal, which she did, and she is walking around normally now. Try to keep cats out of garages! I don’t go out there myself.
I am happy to report this is the fourth year in a row with no one here crossing the Rainbow Bridge. That is a real blessing! We want to thank all our readers for their support. The Feline Cafe has been more successful this year than any other year by all measures of success! Thank you all old friends and new friends alike!

It is a frosty Monday morning. Scooby was insisting the window be opened so he could go outside in the catio. He changed his mind as the chill blew through the window. Better to just stay inside and relax.
Catio hijinks features a rare photo of all four of my cats in the catio in one photograph. The cats took it upon themselves to set the scene themselves.
Wordless Wednesday foggy November
This post displays two very short videos of Scooby’s Autumn walkabout, followed by some still photographs. Each video is only 38 seconds long. There is a little dog barking in both videos. He is not barking at Scooby. The dog cannot see Scooby and does not know he is there. Scooby is looking around, wondering where all that barking is coming from. You may see a white mailbox in the video on a tree stump. I am installing it for Bigfoot, so I don’t have to share my mailbox with him.
