Black cat | white snow









What a dipstick!

It would appear I'm not the only one that has a soft spot for snow - so does our 'stupid' cat Rufus.

When I mentioned back on Monday that an over excited kitty cat joined me in the garden whilst I took some snaps and enjoyed the peace and quiet of all three children being at school - this is what I meant.

He was so funny to watch bounding about all over the place, thumping snow with his paws, climbing trees and screwing up his face as dollops of the white stuff fell on his whiskers - such a silly little thing.

But it was so lovely to have his company and capture - sometimes a little too fast for me - his almost giddy, excitable, childish reactions...like the first time we let him out and he spent a whole morning chasing flies. 

Rufus!!!!!

  17. What fun! I'm so glad that you were there with your camera to capture ut for us. Isn't it strange to see our pets get excited over little things. And doesn't it bring a smile to your face just when you need one?! What a blessing! Joan

  28. I always thought it was dogs that went loopy in the snow - my childhood dog used to run and then drop to her tummy and snowplough with her nose! You'd have thought that a cat would prefer not to get cold paws but he looks like he's having so much fun!

  29. Tabiboo!
    I look at your blog for several years. You interested me, and I finally decided to write here. You are very creative and clever girl, I would like to talk more personally, maybe with paper letters. What do you think about this? Please write me to a.abovyan@bk.ru
    I'm sure it will be interesting :)
    P.S. On some photo your cat look like dragon "Night Fure" from cartoon "How to train your dragon" :)
