Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Snow in April!

Yesterday morning we had snow! This is very unusual for Virginia. And it was a big surprise for the flowers, though it didn't seem to harm them. The snow was mostly all melted by afternoon, but it remained cold outside.

Big Man Cats with thick man cat fur don't mind walking in the cold snow.

Tulips look yummy with snow frosting on top,

but I prefer the yummy chilled grass--a delicacy!

Biggify this picture and you can notice the snow on my neck that dropped from the forsythia bush above. I shook myself just after my photographer snapped this shot.

Even though I enjoy snow, I'm ready for spring and warm sunshine to return.


P.S. Mom's way behind in helping us blog and visit our friends, but at least she completed her taxes this weekend! She has to work very late for the next three nights so we won't get to see her much. At least Dad is home to care for us.

My mom is all stressed out because she hasn't done our taxes, whatever those are. She's got papers spread out everywhere!

I can't believe you've got *snow on the ground! I mean, I believe it, but that's not right.

I don't believe you about the snow. Even though I saw it with my own eyes....no snow in April, its a law or something.

I see the snow on your neck. You are a very Big Man Cat to go walking in the snow and even eating chilled grass. Brrrr! We got some snow flurries, but it didn't stay very long at all. I'm ready for Spring to come back.

Mom just shook her head, snow in Virginia in April! And she remembers the cherry blossoms in DC, she is often back there during that time. Hope they are OK.
