A Little Bit of SNOW!

A few days ago we had our first snowfall of the season. It was only about two inches or less.

I HAD to go out in it after my dinner.

I think that I'm going to venture off my deck and go play.

I'm off to explore the jungle in winter!
I only stayed outside about a half hour, but later that night, about 3:30 a.m., I started my "scratching on the bedroom full length mirror" routine. That's usually my signal to Mom that I want to go outside or have my breakfast. Mom yelled at me for about 30 minutes to go back to sleep, but I was persistent. Because she knows that I sometimes punish her by doing something "inappropriately" in the house, she decided to get up and let me out despite the cold. I got to stay out for several hours until breakfast! I love my freedom and my fur coat kept me warm.

Okay Jake, what's your secret? I've been trying to go out in the snow for days, and my human is being very obstinate about not giving me my way!

Oh burrrrrrr, I'm not sure I would like that! It was cold here today, and when I went outside with Mom, I shivered, so she brought me back in and put my sweater on! And we don't even have any snow!

Your mom should understand ! when a cat has decided something it has to be done immediately ! My cat Lisa wakes me up almost every night at around 3.30 am not to go out but for food !! and if I don't get up immediately she would scratch the wardrobe, throw things on the floor and meauw until I am out of the bed ! I tried to close my ears, but it never worked !

It's 59 degrees here at nearly nine o'clock in the evening. It's not cold enough for snow here.

Be careful out in the cold, Jake!

I dunno, Jake, I think Indy might be right! Stripes might make cats crazy!!! You LIKE walking in snow?!? But good job on getting your mom to let you out! And at night, for hours! My OTW never lets me out for hours and never ever at night, 'cause she says she'd never find me back! Oh, well, it's definitely too cold here and we've got more Evil White Stuff falling from the sky again.

Wow! You are very brave to go outside in the snow!!! I like to watch it fall, but I wouldn't want to go out in it. Fortunately, we haven't had much snow in Munich yet this year. Just a little bit that has melted soon after touching down.

Brrrrrrr! I'll just stay in and look at it!
