Yes, We Still Have Snow

Camie's Kitties asked, in the comment for yesterday, "was that the last real big patch of snow?"

Momma went out yesterday morning and took the following pictures, so you can see, there still is snow around, but our yard is bare, what is left is in the woods and piles from shoveling and snow blowing. Mistrie is out and about, happy spring has arrived. Winter hasn't been seen for two weeks now. (Momma thinks he is a boy and has moved on, "looking for love." There was plenty of love for him here in the Big Piney Woods.) She says maybe he will come back, regardless, she saved him through the snowy winter.


Snow that is left from what fell off the roof.


Some snow left across the pond.

Monday's Photo For Contest


Monday, 6:30 AM

Yesterday, I removed the weather banner as it has been 30 degrees below the actual temperature and reports it is cloudy, when it has been sunny. I guess it was stuck in "nasty." I changed to Weather Underground.

I Think I Am Rich!!!

I found a round silver medal in this chair. Patches said it was 1/4. A quarter of what? It looked whole to me, nice and shiny and ready to bat. Patches said it takes four of them to make a green paper. I guess she should know, she is a Feline Finance Councellor. She said I should be practical and put it in a CRA (Cat Retirement Account.) I am way too young to worry about that; I want to spend it, maybe on a toy. Can I get anything with 1/4 or do I need 1/3 or maybe even 7/8? Mittens suggested going to Goodwill, maybe they have cheap, gently used toys.

CalicoMom here with a snow contest update. We are getting close to a winner. It is supposed to be 60 this weekend. Watch for updates.

Wordless Wednesday

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From CalicoMom: Miss Computer is acting up. The monitor wouldn't come on and then when it did, everything was REALLY slow, slower than slow. Also, the CD player doesn't always work, and sometimes it only shows one file, when the CD has many files on it. The mouse doesn't always work, either, and I have to reboot. (yes, time for a new computer I think.) iIf it goes kaplooey, I will still keep up on the contest.

Oh, Oh!!!

I was a tad naughty last night. As you know, I am not in solitary confinement (bedroom) anymore, since I got to be "A Big Gurl." However, last night, I just had to box with Patches, on the bed. She was asking for it, believe me. Then I started a game of Thundering Herd Of Elephants and Kill The People Toes; nefurr mind it was 2:00 AM. Momma said I need to go in time-out, but a lot of it was Patches fault. How come I get the blame; you see how innocent I am? You believe me, don't you? Anyways, my pawsies have a mind of their own.

Please......A Miracle



There was a terrible fire in Momma Laura's apartment. We are purring and purring that the kitties got out, safely. Momma eyes have been leaking and she says that is the worst of her fears. We love you all!!

Update from the Cat Blogosphere: Laura JUST called! Mu Shue, Lilly Lu and Iris were found hiding in the apartment by the fire folks going around checking and they’re alive!!! They were hiding and they’re scared to come out for strangers. They’re still there, and she can’t go in yet because it’s unsafe, but Animal Control is going to go in as soon as possible!!! Laura is picking up new carriers right now. The fire people said they’d be ok overnight if it had to be that long, but they’re going to try to get the in tonight if at all possible.
YEAH!!!!!!

It's Offishul

Momma put Winter Ghost's picher and bio in the sidebar on April 6th. That means (we hope) Winter is a Big Piney Woods Cat! (If he/she decides to stay and doesn't leave.)


Here is whut Momma rited about Winter. The picher is grainy, cuz it was taken indoors. The sidebar news will change and a gud picher will replace this one.

~Patches Lady~

Winter Ghost came to us in the early part of December, 2007. The tracks came from quite a distance, as he/she searched for food and shelter. The winter of 2007/2008 were the worst snow winter we have had since 1919, so it is a good thing Winter found us when he/she did. I made sure the bed was clean and there was always food and water. We don't know how long Winter will stay, we did our part and he/she turned from a skinny scared cat, to a healthy, semi-scared cat. I need time now to socialize Winter, and hope he/she decides to make the Big Piney Woods home. Mistrie is coming to accept Winter, slowly, and they are seen a few feet apart.

Big Gurl Now

I have graduated to "Big Gurl Status." I don't have to go into solitary confinement, anymore, at night. I get to roam the house all night. Usually I sleep on the floor, close to Momma (it is too hot in the bed.) At 4:00 I get on the A-Frame and try to open the cubby hole that is right behind it. I scratch a lot, so Momma puts her ear plugs in her ears. She nefurr gits mad at me, no matter how naughty I am. She says I am too cute to get mad at.

How Could You Resist?


English Sue sent me this darling picture, and I had to share it with you. I have a soft spot for all cats, but especially calicos. I would never turn a cat in need away. They are sent to me from, I believe, my long deceased mother who loved them, as I do. There have been too many "strange" coincidences on how the Big Piney Woods Cats happened to make this their home.
