Is It Spring Yet?

I am patiently waiting for spring. Mine Mom says it is "right around the corner," so, I looked in all the corners, but couldn't find it. I told her this, and she said, "Oh, Patches, that is just a saying." ......... I know... YOU said it, Mom!!! Now I am so confused, and to top it off, she said the groundhog did not see his shadow in A State Of Winter, so there won't be 6 more weeks of winter like in the States of the East. So, how many more weeks before spring has sprung, another of Mom's famous statements. And if spring is going to sprung, how will it do that? So....I sit here waiting for spring.......and if/when it sprungs, will I know it.....will I hear it....will I see it... will I smell it??

::sigh:: Here in Alabama, the groundhog *did* see his shadow. I should have eaten him before he could do that.

Love your picture!

spring is here when the white stuff is off the ground and the warm spots in front of the windows get warmer, and the bugs are back to eat, and the birdies are all over the place to bark/meow at, and for me when momma lets me walk on my leash instead of sticking me in her coat. Momma also says I'll know it's spring this year because she thinks she's going to bring me a friend to live with us. I'm not so sure about this, I will love it when it comes to play time but I don't want anyone else to get snuggles from momma and no one else can give dad kisses but me!

Your momma looks like the flowering type, so when she starts messing with flowers and plants then it means it's spring time.

You will definitely see it and smell it, Patches. You look very patient there waiting in your window.

If Spring is round the corner, my man better dig it out - we gots almost a foot of snow in 24 hours! The boy and my woman were here all day, keeping me awake.

Didya know groundhogs are the same as woodchucks? One was living under our shed - they're BIG.

Patches, people are always saying funny stuff like that and it makes no sense what-so-ever. Just ignore your mom when she gets like that. But if spring does sprung, be alert, and jump out of the way!

Patches, I can improve on Bonnie's "hints". She's sitting on somefing in her pictor that's also in the lower left corner of the pictor of her booshy tail.

As for me, look for what I'm playing wif and something colorful in the background at the start of my video. They're both in my pictor. And since I'm not all white, my paw pads are a mix of pink and black. I hope that helps!

Gorgeous portrait of you. You bear a passing ressemblance to a gal I used to know.
