Zeke spends most of his day (or night if he is lucky!) outside in the catio. Being a Maine Coon, the cold weather does not bother him. He has lots of long fur and a big furry tail. He blends in nicely with the snow and gravel in the catio today. He knows more about what goes on out in the back than anyone. Opie spends much time however in a second story window surveying the same scene from up above. What are they watching? It is my small stand of pine woods which I show below. Many birds and animals visit. Zeke I am sure knows them all. The vigil continues. . . .
Scooby decided to go outside again this morning. There was a little snow that was melting, but lower temperatures and more snow are coming by evening. The fresh air does him good, and he sleeps like a baby after coming back inside. Hope your day is going well.
Snow cats today shows Zeke and Scooby in the snow. The snow had just begun to fall, so they were not much bothered by it. Scooby did not mind having cold paws–at least for a little while he was good with it. Then he went to the back door and meowed to come inside. Zeke was just “chilling” literally in the catio. He eventually came in when Scooby came inside. Next week is going to be bitter cold. I suspect we all will stay inside by the fire.
Zeke is the other snow cat. He is a Maine Coon and loves all types of weather. He is always wanting out in the catio to check the weather out first thing in the morning. The catio has no roof, but is partially protected by the overhang of the roof eave.
This is the end of our snow series, as warm air is arriving from the south and will be melting everything extremely rapidly. If we are lucky, that will be the last of the snow for us this Winter! Christmas I would have thought snow beautiful and appropriate. In February it was a giant nuisance!
More “Snomageddon starring Scooby the Snowcat!” continues the big snow story. I live on a PRIVATE road at the end of a cul-de-sac. That means the County is not responsible for my road and will not plough it. Sunday morning all the residents of the street–men and women–grabbed shovels and cleared the street. Took hours. It was just like the old time days when everyone helped each other. Think that America is gone? It isn’t!
A new snow storm is coming and we know if we let new snow pile on top of what we have now, we wouldn’t drive out of here until Spring. Now, Scooby knew when we were done that an inspection was due to insure the snow was moved properly, so he went out when all was finished to check things out. The following photos show what he found.
Scooby in “Snomageddon” is a collection of photos of Scooby walking along the path I dug in the snow. Walking on concrete is fine, but he does not like the snow on his paw pads.
