The cat said...

head in the chair

..."wake me when winter's over."

She made the mistake of looking out the window and saw this:

snow craters

She's right, the landscape does look a bit like one of Saturn's moons right now:

But I'm still optimistic that spring is coming. The Goldfinches are putting on their summer colours, and the bluejays are looking brighter too.

I've noticed the finches brightening colors also! Spring has to come! Love the cat's response to snow.

Yes, she's very cold-averse, even though her paws are so covered in long fur (between her toes too) that she pretty much has built-in snowshoes. She is just desperate for spring to come, and with it a grass buffet. The papyrus that has suffered from her ravages is looking forward to it as well.
