Snow day

Cantabby appreciates his feather duvet.

It's snowing in Dunedin today. Wonderful. Cold but wonderful. According to my indoor/outdoor thermometer, the outside air temperature has not risen above 1 degree C since before midnight last night, and a lot of that time it has been below zero. Reasonably snug inside the house though. The agency cat doesn't seem to know what snow is - he rushed along the window sill trying to bat at the whirling white things (Butterflies? Tiny white birds?) and was desperate to be let outside. We weren't keen to let him go out in such a wild mood, so we let him poke his head out to see how freezing it was. A snow flake flew into his ear and he retreated smartly. Back to sleep. Wake me up when the sun shines again.

Pushkin is irresistable, Pamela. How could anyone not adore a cat like him?

Thanks Claire :-) I've known cats that sleep with their feet in the air, but not as regularly and adorably as he does. And it's particularly cute the way he can sleep with his TAIL in the air!
