STUCK IN THE THROES OF THE WINTER BLAHS

by Janet Blue on February 27, 2015

Mom says that we have been SO boring lately, which does not make for having a good blog…or any blog for that matter. This winter is dragging on forever. It’s been cold and snowy, and we don’t feel like doing anything but lolling around the house. We’d like to be on the Catio and watch the squirrels and birds. The humans won’t let us go outside unless the temperature goes above 32 degrees F. Even on days when that happens, we don’t want to spend much time there.

So this is what we have been doing.

Lisbeth: I am lying in a weak sunpuddle on the heated kitchen floor alternately playing with the corner of the rug and bathing. (Enlarge the photo to see my raspberry red tongue.)

Astrid: Mau and I are hanging out on the cat tower, mostly napping when not being disturbed by the photographer. Even Mauricio, who has a love affair with the camera, cannot muster a smile as he ponders the pawful weather we have been having.

Astrid: It’s me again, inhabiting a paper bag this time. Nothing exciting there. As you all know, I am the resident bag lady. (No comments needed about the handles, purrlease…I was not left unsupervised!)

This is what we saw when we looked out the window this morning. We have four new inches of snow on top of about 12 inches of old snow. Okay, so it’s not Boston, but we still don’t like it. And our mom’s super case of the winter blahs is obviously starting to wear off on us. Even visiting and commenting on all our furiends’ blogs has become a bit of a chore, especially when it interrupts our sulking. Please forgive us. We promise to do better beginning today.

Mom says that she’ll try to dazzle you all tomorrow with one of her crazy art creations for Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.

And don’t forget that we will be hosting our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop again this weekend. If you haven’t pawticipated yet, give it a whirl. It’s easy and fun. Once you submit your photo, you have all day to enjoy your “easy,” which is the best part!

Purrs and paw-pats, Lisbeth and Astrid

Maybe we need to have an anti snow dance? That would liven things up, MOL!!Even our dog-guy is tired of the vast spread and depth of the white blanket…(and the yellow parts too, OMC!)

I feel bad for everyone who’s having a bad winter this year. We’re having a mild winter here and it’s been very nice. I wish I could share it with everyone.

We are so sorry you guys are having such awful weather. We feel bad for even complaining about our rainy and cold weather now. We are sending all of the warmth we can possibly muster your way in hopes of melting all that snow! Or maybe you could send some of the snow down here? We would like just one snow day… or even to see a flake of snow!
Sampy sends kisses and purrs to his lovely bag lady, Astrid. And we all send lots of love!

It has been a rough Winter. We will be happy to see it end. Between illness, injuries, mandatory/emergency bathroom remodeling, etc. it has been a long haul. I am still healing, and not back to a routine. Still a lot of rib cage page and breathing issues. I am working at it, though. Maggie has been under the weather, but Chloe Jo is stable! Grizelda & Stella are fine! We will get there. ~xo~

I can’t/won’t try to imagine that kind of snow again. It freezes me to just think about it. Keep warm and remember this is temporary! 🙂

You have lots more snow than we do! Mom says this is a very strange winter ‘cuz everyone else is getting snow and we’re just getting cold. She’s happy that she hasn’t had to shovel very much at all. We get to go outside when there aren’t any degrees at all. Of course Mom only lets us out for a short time. We insist on going out so it’s our fault if we don’t like it. Sometimes we just sniff the air and turn around. Hang in there. Mom says she thinks spring will come again but she’s not sure………….
