Soggy Sunday

Yesterday we celebrated the fact that Äiti was home during the 4 hours of daylight we have right now, and we dashed out onto the catio to play in the snow. But we had an unpleasant shock - no snow! Jura sniffed at the patches of icy stuff.
We were busy surveying the grass! We should not be seeing this stuff until April! Truly there are strange things happening with our weather.
 This morning Äiti let us out again, and there was snow. Perhaps all was now corrected.
 We stood at the edge of the snow and dipped a paw in, and it was icky and wet.
 We don't like wet snow. Even Ruska was very brief with his mousewatch mission.
Pekka-poika also stepped out and he started miaowing he was so unimpressed.
And Stran-veli was very brief in his footfall over to poo corne. Every time we go out he dashes to the corner for a quick dig and spot of relief.
  And when he is finished, he always plays like pikku pentu. Today he just skidded through the slush.
 Look at these perfect paw prints in this imperfect snow.
What is up with this weather? Humans, is this all your fault ? Or a random fluctuation in the atmospheres? Has Stran-veli produced so much methane in poo corner that our world really has become warmer ?

The temps are up and down like a yo-yo here too. Very cold this weekend, with a dusting of snow that still is on the ground, but up to +6C and rain tomorrow. Our mom prefers the mild weather, so doesn't mind. We'll get enough snow soon anyway, we're sure. Enjoy your Sunday, no matter what the weather. :-)

It's the methane! We are having an unusually wet winter here in the desert. Mommy in particular is QUITE unimpressed.

Interesting weather fluctuations for you. Fresh snow, rather than old snow, is nice.

Ha ha, re Audrey - no, we don't think she has any thyroid issues but will mention it to the vet. She actually IS rather chubby in the tummy and chest, bit has slender face, legs and hips! We think she was had a hungry start in life and is insecure about food. She weight 11.5 lbs, which is quite a lot for such a little girl.

We had a frost this morning and it's definitely colder than it was, but it's still not quite the weather we expect this time of year here either!

Whoa, if Stran is in any way responsible for global warming, I can only imagine the sheer power of his deposits!!

Our weather is crazy too. We haven't had any really cold weather yet, and now it is turning milder again, and rain every day.
