-- cats don't like cold feet

Dan just posted some pix of Sita's first encounter with ice. Really we should have just done a video. And yes, this was a sadistic attempt to get her to reject the outside since she's always darting out the door. She's not supposed to be an outside cat -- doesn't have the right vaccinations plus I'd worry too much she'd be hit by a car -- but she was, for 37 seconds, an outdoor cat who quickly ran in. See Dan's pix -->

I recall the first time my cats experienced snow. I was a the 3rd floor condo and I would let the cats out onto my balcony. They loved it so much that they would come jetting out from nowhere as soon as they heard the sound of the sliding door moving (I ended up getting a cat door insert). This time, it had snowed, but they still came running. The first one flew out the door and landed smack in the middle of the snow. She quickly jumped to the nearest dry spot (far from the door) and ended up staying there all day, unwilling to walk across the snow again to get inside. The second one flew out of the door and landed in the middle of the snow and then just froze. He stayed in one position for a good 5 minutes before turning around and heading back inside. Cats are so funny.

My cat Frida HATES the cold! After just one experience with snow, where she ran standing on her hind legs like one of those sloths(is it?)on funniest animal videos, she now lays like a slug on the back of the couch all winter; parting the curtains to peek out of the window if something catches her interest. Come Spring though, she absolutely decimates the blind and defenseless vole population in the yard; we call it 'Vole Patrol'. P.S. You and Sita have such pretty eyes! I love these pet pics!

P.P.S. "Cats Don't Like Cold Feet" would be a great song title.

I have two cats, a boy and a girl. You could not pick two more opposite personalities then these two. I let them on the patio and small meadow three times a day under my supervision. We just got our first snow. Male cat after finding out that snow is just something you can push around, started to play like he never played before. To bad I did not have my camera with me. On the other hand the female cat, after sniffing the air went inside and did not did not care for the snow. Just another curiosity, it took them three years to finally get friendly. She was the one who wanted to be the queen of the house but he would not have it. Lots of fun, folks, lots, lots lots!
