This is where Dot has spent most of the winter. She loves her new bed; Best Friends by Sheri (a Christmas present). I picked it up at a Home Goods store and I don't remember the actual name of the bed, but we call it the Cat Yurt. If you don't know what a yurt is look here.
When it was sunny and there was no wind, she would venture outside for about five minutes and then zoom back into the warmth of the house, (kind of like me)!
Who could blame her when you were met with Ice-Henge! These photos are from a couple of weeks ago. Those 5 and 6 foot pillars of ice fell off of the roof! Most of them impaled themselves in the snow below, a few fell over and shattered. Needless to say, we were very careful about standing under them or letting the kitties out until they came down.
Guy loves the snow! Only the coldest of temperatures and wind kept him inside. I threw a wool blanket on the table and he was quite content sitting up there while I shoveled the walk.
Thankfully, some of the snow is now gone. Melted by the somewhat warmer temperatures. We did have a bit of snow yesterday just to tease us again. I let Guy out for a bit and the huge flakes covered him in just a couple of minutes. Even he has seen enough snow for this winter!
Our weather is gradually improving and on Sunday we are to warm into the mid 50's. We are even seeing some bare ground finally. I have to say though that this is really the ugliest time of year in Minnesota. The snow is dirty and grimy and nothing has started greening up yet. But in a couple of weeks, oh what a change we will see!
In the mean time, Dot will be hanging out in her Yurt. I will be getting round to visit your blogs and Guy will be Guy!
Have a great weekend everyone!
