Last week my mum's school got closed by the snow (see previous post) and stayed closed for two and a half days, so I got to have a nice long weekend with her and lots of lap time.
I have hardly been outside in my garden because I do not like snow. It is too cold and wet. I only went out to investigate it once. That evil intruder kitty Marmite has been visiting. The snow doesn't seem to bother him much. Our back garden is covered in pawprints. You may remember that in the summer Marmite is obsessed with hanging around my pond trying to catch my newts. Here's a picture of my pond to remind us what summer looks like! This is what my pond has looked like for the last week: See those pawprints? Marmite has been walking around on top of the ice trying to see if there are any newts under it! The ice on the pond is quite thick, but he's crazy, that Marmite.
Wonder how long it is until summer?
Marmite must spend more time outside so his paws are tested for the cold.
Stay warm, the daylight is getting longer!
Marmite looks so much like Zolie our outdoor cat. Pure black with a little patch of white on the chest. But we can't get anywhere near her, mom either.
We've had snow on and off since 21st December and to be truthful we're not quite sick of it!
Marmite looks quite sturdy, so as the thaw sets in, he might just get a wet bum surprise if he ventures on to the ice!

It looks just as cold where you are as it is here in Minnesota! All I can advise is lots of naps by the heat vents, lots of blankets to snuggle under.
Your furs certainly make a nice contrast in the snow, Eric.
At least your newts are safe from Marmite under the ice.
