Snow, snow, snow

We are preparing mom to go take pikshers of all da snow we gots...yes, we're snowed in. No, we're not really unhappy. Unlike some (look here) we is safe, warm and haf lots of food. Mom's baking cookies and dad is sitting in da recliner wif a blankie on his legs fur us to lay on...after da wind dies down he will go get da snow blower and clear da driveway and sidewalks. She stuck the camera out the back door (which she couldn't open very far) and snapped this...

The boy, Nick, who is taking such good care of da colony called mom at 10 this morning and said he and his brother had shoveled a path to the feeding station and while they were there had to clear the entrances to the shelters and that all the kitties were packed in there and were really happy to see them! He said it was so warm in the shelters they took their gloves off and put their hands inside to warm them up! Then they cleared the area between the shelters and the feeders and filled the buckets, checked the water dishes and the power stations and were planning on going back later in the afternoon to make sure it was all still clear. They all go to school there and live thru the woods behind the school. He called mom so she wouldn't try to drive thru the blizzard to check on the kitties and get stuck or worse. After mom hung up from talking to him she told dad, with tears in her eyes, that he is the sweetest young man she has ever met. He also told mom that he and his girlfriend were taking her younger brother and his brothers and sisters to the sled hill in the park for some fun, since they is all off school...

That boy sounds like such a nice young man. It made my Mum's eyes tear up to know that there are such nice young people that care about animals so much.

We have snow too, but certainly not as much as you. Stay inside and sit on yer Dad's lap and stay nice and warm : )

Cat with a garden said...

That is a lot of snow! We too just love what we're hearing from the kids at the school. It is such a good project and the cats can be most happy these days. We hope you can get out of your house some time...

Dat looks like our house! Mama still went and did the day hunting, but she came home early and we took naps with her.

We like your Nick boy.

Kaz's Cats said...

We can't believe all the snow at your place. We never get any snow here, and we're very glad about that! Young Nick is doing such a good job making sure that the colony are okay - we think we'd like him too!

Forever Foster said...

What a truly wonderful young man. We don't blame your mum for having tears in her eyes! Our catmum was a street cat, and we hope that at some point someone took care of her like this, too. Thankyou for telling us about Nick. With all the doom and gloom in the world, it really gives us hope that the future is going to be ok, afterall.

Jimmy Joe said...

What grate teenagers you have around there! Momma says she's not surprised, because she has lots of students who are amazingly generous and enthusiastic about helping others (they are college students but still teenagers, some of them). We didn't get that much snow today afternoon--only about 6 inches. Coco went out in it but I stayed in today.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Max said...

Oh no! THE EVILNESS!!!! I do not miss snow, my nipples are puckering just LOOKING at those pictures! It's a very good thing my nipples are useless...

Gandalf and Grayson said...

We like that young man very much! We hope the colony stays safe and warm! We hope you can get dug out! At least it looks Christmas-y!

Mr. Echo said...

I had to run and check the outta doors when I saw dat pitchur. Nope, no snow heer in Texas. Yoo must be verry far away. It snowed heer one time and I got throwed into it. I discovered I do not like snow so yoo can haff all of it. From the looks of things yoo is well on yur way.

Stay warm! Glad those other kitties are in a warm pile too!

Daisy said...

Wowie, lookit all that snow! It is so nice that Nick checked to make sure that cat colony is warm and well fed.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Oh my! Stay warm everyone! Kind of nice your family gets a snow day. When it's cold there's nothing better than human laps to curl up on.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We're so glad you didn't have to go out in that snow to feed the colony. Those are some great kids! Stay warm and cozy.

Laila and Minchie said...

We almost didn't see your car! Those are the luckiest colony of kitties! Reading about this also brought tears of joy to our Mommie's eyes. Kudos!!!

Everycat said...

These children are just the best kids ever. You have done a wonderful thing introducing them to the delights of feral care and management.

Now, about this snow you have. We have no snow, and so offer to take ALL of your snow from you. Soon as you like!

Rascal said...

Whew. I'm glad you Cats are safe and warm. While you got all that, we got a lot of rain. The humans said we need it but I'm too crazy about water falling on me from the sky.

Grahamn Kracker said...

Looks like a decent snow, all right. It took a long time to get down there, but at least you got before Christmas.

Two Sisters said...

Oh, that Nick and the others sound so nice to take care of the colony! You sure did get a lot of snow - we don't have any now but may get some before Christmas.

Congratulations on winning the Forty Paws Ham-Mick in the raffle. I have one that I got from them last Christmas in Secret Paws and it's wonderful. My Lap Lady had to bring mine in from the screened-in porch since it's only 20 degrees out and I am not going out there!

Purrrrrrrs, China Cat
