Cold and Snow and Sleep

Since my last post, it has been dreadfully cold - so much so that the cats we sheltered at Christmas came back again, for some much needed warmth and peaceful sleep. As you can see, they do seem to appreciate it:

My childhood teddy keeps Rascal company whilst he sleeps, and perhaps dreams of birdies like the one in the calendar photo. I am glad he cannot catch this one ...

There's something about a window seat...

Sylvester keeps my chair warm (dogury nogamy :) ...

Sylvester spies something, or someone ....

Tristan cozies up with a blanket...

Bandito and Azalea...

Amaryllis time!! This one is Aphrodite - I love the red picotee edging ...

Supposed to be Red Lion, but it seems much more exotic, a nice mistake in labelling...

And last but not least, killer icicles - view from workplace hallway.

Keep warm and safe everyone!

  2. Cats know how to make it through a cool Winter don't they. Mine are napping in a shoe box, on a fresh towel and on the bed. Oh, and the one in the closet...

  3. They all look so peaceful ...all curled up and warm...which is probably what I'd like to do in this miserable weather. We have had similar weather here and as I go from room to room I typically see a round white ball of fur in one of the many sleeping spaces (usually with their little faces tucked into their paws). Those icicles look quite ominous ...we only have a few here and there (rather it is the high snowbanks we have to deal with and some bad windchill).

  4. I love your kitties and flowers. They certainly go well together. Those icicles look awfully dangerous. I hope no one gets hurt.

  6. WOW - those icicles!!!!

    The puddy-cats do indeed seem content and very warm ;-)

    If I come back as a cat I'm coming to find your hosue!
