Mine - All Mine!!

Forget all those expensive kitty toys and condos - nothing spells happiness for a cat more than a new box - a big one at that! Here is Manitou claiming the box for himself, and for a long time was unwilling to leave it in case someone else had the nerve to move in. It's January - cold and boring - cats and humans alike have their grumpy periods, and revert to "cabin-fever" behaviour. When he's really bored and it's not too cold, but mild and snowy, Manitou can be found on the back porch catching snowflakes (or rather, trying to catch them). I tell you that is too cute for words watching him look up into the sky, purposely single out a really big flake, then try and catch it with those big mittens of his. Maybe I'll try and post a video sometime...cuteness value: unlimited.

Meanwhile, see how others are coping with winter at The Friday Ark and then Carnival of the Cats on Sunday.
