Tuesday catio frolics

The temperature has dropped and none of us wants to go out. It was -20'C yesterday, ten degrees lower than on Sunday when we were bravely out in the deep drifts. Pekka is very handsome against the white snow. And it is currently all white. It will take a while for the golden glacier to appear: at -20'C it is hard for us to get our little peemail producers working. 
 Jura is wanting to pounce on Stran-veli and me as we inspect the corner. You never know when there might be mousie tracks.
Jura has to brake - we will not stand for any ninja attacks. Look how calm and unworried we are!
So he sinks himself into the snow to wait to pounce on the next victim.

You kids lead verreh exciting lives over there--cold, but verreh exciting. Here in my Kingdom, the temperature holds steady between the high forties and the high sixties for probably 48 of the 52 weeks of the year. It's pleasant and all, and walking and driving and stuff are always ridiculously easy, but somehow I worry that we are not HARDY SOULS like those of you who live in sterner climes. You know, as though because our weather is mild, we are weak-willed and weaselish and not to be trusted when times get tough.

But then I shake my head a few times and take a nap.

Whoa! That kind of cold is beyond my southwestern-U.S. imagination! How can you kitties stand it? I would never leave the house!

Oh, wait a minute - I'm indoors only with no catio. So I already never leave the house.

Great action shot of Jura in mid-pounce. And I love how you gave him a look which made him put on the brakes.

You are stalwart, strong and more importantly, FINNISH! Not to be crossed under any circumstances. I stand with paw upraised in admiration!

Totally gorgeous photo of Jura. He's beyond beautiful surrounded by snow. But we want to say to him .......Are you mad, man? Get that hairless body and those tiny feeties into the sauna right now! You're a warm weather kitty!
Love to everyone.

We wouldn't be venturing out the door at -20C. When we were young and foolish it was a different story, but now the wood burner beckons.
