Cabin Fever

We have a wee bit of snow.

It is causing much cabin fever among the inmates here. Look at all the sad that has fallen down and almost crushed Freckles in the back of this picture.

There is so much sad that all she can do is lay around and sigh. Sometimes she can manage a wag or two but they are slow, sad wags. She can go outside and play in the snow but then she realizes that it is freaking cold out even with a built in fur coat and she hustles back.

Riley is about out of his brain. He needs to get outside to chase and kill. He is trying to cope by killing things like garland in the house. We are being tolerant. Better garland than us. The other day Powder was walking past him and he grabbed her hind leg and fake bit it like he was a lion taking down a zebra. We all stared at him until he let go.

He sits and stares out the back door and then looks at me reproachfully because I won’t make it better. We stop him from going out but you can’t always stop stupid. He rushes out between the dog’s legs when she is coming inside.

Five minutes later:

I call this one “STFU and Let Me In!”

    Very cold photos indeed. We’re in it together… looks like you’re experiencing what we’re getting here in Alberta, Canada.

  2. We’re getting a lot of snow here, too. I haven’t got the camera out, yet. Your icicle photo is beautiful in a dark and cold sort of way.

    Wow, that is a lot of snow. Love the photo of your cat. Cats are the same the world over.

    Yup … dogs and cats are whining all over the northeastern section of the country … my little cat snuck out around the dogs today and then pranced around the back yard, shaking her back feet every other step. She lasted all of five minutes before she was catcalling at the back door. Our Corgis are lying around on their sides, sighing and looking hopeful every time I get up from the couch … you are not alone, Freckles! Arf, arf!

    BTW: You are too funny!

    Yeah, that’s a bit of snow. We have some too but not that much… but more is on the way. Love the part about your cat, hilarious. :)

    Wow. Kinda cold at your place, huh? My cat always does the same thing, wants out and then turns around and wants in.
