Six More Weeks?!

If Maple Grove Marty were still around (yes, we used to have our very own groundhog living under the garden shed), the fact that he saw his shadow this week, thus predicting 6 more weeks of winter, would not have impressed our Dito. We have had soooo much cold weather this winter: today, hopefully the last of a string of extremely cold temps, this morning it was -19C with a windchill of -32. Although this cat had spent 2 or more years out in the cold before we tamed/saved him, and he's having none of it anymore. Here he is expressing his views on the matter, and I translate loosely: "wake me up when it's spring!!"

See how others are passing the time until spring at The Friday Ark and then Carnival of the Cats on Sunday.


  1. That is a cute photo!! We are going to hibernate until spring too.

  2. Oh, so adorable! But it's going to hit 7C here today so I imagine it'll be reasonably warm where you are, and Wednesday it's supposed to be 9C!

    We actually have a groundhog under our shed as well. We call him Gerald. The cats got REALLY excited in the fall when they saw him out in the backyard, munching on the hydrangea.

    I'll be curious to see if he's still out there come springtime.
