The Cats Go Stir Crazy

After lots of snow, freezing cold temperatures and no sunlight for days, the cats were really feeling housebound and going crazy! As soon as the sun finally started to shine they insisted on going out. No matter how I warned them that there was still snow and cold. The sunshine lulled them into a false sense of security…

There was only a little sliver of space beside the garage

Zulu, being less adventurous than the other two (and possibly more intelligent, actually), was not as anxious to leave the porch steps

But eventually even he couldn’t resist!

Amarula pondered the possibility of jumping into the snow, while Frodo chewed on the dead weeds and Zulu just watched on in wonder! Sadly the cold was such that they had to run inside after a few minutes!

Clearly someone else in my town was going stir crazy. A house a few blocks away build a 15 foot snowman! It made the news! And everyone from all over is driving into town to see it!

Amarula In Denial

AMARULA: Snow? I don’t see any snow. Well, OK maybe there’s a bit of fluffy white stuff everywhere but I’m sure that’s just because a cloud exploded (likely something Frodo did) and it’s just taking a bit of time to clean the mess up. By the way…can we talk about this stupid festive collar you’re making me wear?

AMARULA: I’m just gonna take a quick (very quick…it’s cold out here!) nap and when I wake up I am sure the mess will all be cleaned up and the clear skies and sun will have returned….right?

The Great Escape (Again!)

So Frodo ran out when I went to take out the garbage again! And he found the only snow-free area in the whole yard!

FRODO: I don’t know what Amarula is complaining about; there’s not snow everywhere! Look at this area by the garage. It’s a little snow-free oasis.

FRODO: The sun is so nice and warm I can have a little nap.

FRODO: Oh no! Mom spotted me!

FRODO: Come on mom, just another couple minutes outside please!

 

FRODO: The only issue is that I keep getting pieces of snow stuck to my paws.

FRODO: It’s cold and hard to get off my paws!

FRODO: Is the snow moving?? It does seem to be getting closer! MOM!!!

FRODO: Mom come rescue me! I am ready to come in now!

Frodo Makes A Run For It (again)!

FRODO: I don’t know why mom won’t give us supervised outdoor time in the winter like she does in the summer. Luckily I was able to escape onto the porch when she took out the garbage! It’s not so bad out here. Although I can kinda see why Amarula doesn’t like this white stuff…it is quite chilly….

FRODO: OK, I’m ready to come in now! Open up!

FRODO: Helloooooooo?!?! Anybody home?

FRODO: MOM?! Hurry up and open the door! Or your favorite creamsicle is gonna become a CreamICICLE!

Channel Surfing With Zulu and Frodo

ZULU: I don’t know why Amarula hates winter so much Frodo. These TV winter specials are the best.

FRODO: I agree Zulu! This is so exciting!

ZULU: Wow! I don’t know where to look next! Lucky we have such a wide screen.

FRODO: It’s almost like they’re watching us too!

ZULU: Oh boy! What a close-up shot right outside the window! I would rather watch this than the winter Olympics!

Amarula Has A Cold Snap!

AMARULA: Sigh……..

AMARULA: Why can’t I escape the feeling that this never-ending winter thing…

AMARULA: Is somehow Zulu and Frodo’s fault??

AMARULA: I think I’m gonna go find them and whappity whap them back into summer!

Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader!

1. Trust a tortie at your peril! Mwhahahahahahaha….

2. I would protest WOULD?!?! You mean DO! Protesting is pretty much my life! In fact, I protest this fill-in!!

3. I have hidden a dead mouse in the kitchen cupboard. The human has been asking “what’s that funny smell” since  “ last Tuesday!” I have to do something to amuse myself through the winter!

4. Right now, I would kill for a Bailey’s Irish Cream to help warm me up! I wonder where that human hid the key to the liquor cabinet this time! I vehemently protest the locking of the liquor cabinet!!
