Floofy Formerly Feral Friday

Kitties!


Sweet Pea here.

It's freezing darn COLD on our Catio!
And windy!

We spent most of the day inside today, and only ventured out for a short time to take advantage of some sunpuddles.
This is the kind of weather that makes me very happy to be FORMERLY feral.  

We think we need an extra treat or eleven to keep up our strength to battle the cold but Mommy's not buying it.  So we've all become heaty-spot seekers instead...
...and Mommy woke up with SIX Cats on the Big Bed this morning!  There's an electric mattress pad on the bed and boy, it is totally toasty.  And guess what--Mommy left it on all day for us.  
We're gonna pile on it again tonight...and yes, I'll be under the covers!

Happy Friday!


XX  Sweet Pea

  1. It sounds like you guys are getting the same weather as us - it is clear but REALLY cold! Since we don't snuggle, the office/ living room floor heater has become our bff!

  3. We bet you get really cold when the temperature drops in the desert. Sunpuddles help but the warm bed sounds much better. That was nice of your mommy to leave it on for you! We hope it warms up soon!

  4. Lucky you! If you prefer the sun on warm grass, teleport over to my garden. Methinks there are ham and cheese to be had as well.

  5. Stay warm, kitties! How nice of your mama to keep the bed warmer on for you!

  6. Keep warm kids!!!

    We are having sort of a heatwave here in Toronto. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 7-10C, which is 44-50F, that is crazy warm for us this time of year.

  11. Ack, we left a comment and it got eated! Well, enjoy da warm bed. And if mommy ever doesn't leave it on just ask Sadie, she turns on mom's heaty pad thingy alla time. Dad just wishes she would learn to turn it off when she's done.

  12. Hehehehe. We are having a giggle at you guys here. Rilli-ukko went for a morning breath of fresh air today in the snow (-10'C). But seriously, if you are not used to it, freezing temperatures are nasty nasty nasty and being inside on a heating mat is the bestest thing for you.
    And we ALL think that being FORMERLY feral is the best thing to be. We would wish that every kitty be rescued from feralhood an dhave heat mats to sleep on.

  36. Hello Lounge kitties! Mom is back and we are catching up on our blogs. Thank you for your nice words for our Auntie Carol. Mom is still sad, we are sticking close to her.
    We are impresses that you met the 13 cat challenge!
    Too bad it is so cold there so you can't soak in the sun, but it is great to have those warm pads to lay on and we are glad your Daddy is taking care of your outside cat too in this cold snap.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh no! I left you a comment earlier Sweet Pea but Blogger seems to have eaten it.
    I said that I didn't like to think of you being cold but we have our woodburner going 24/7. Would you like to come and snuggle in front of it with me?
