Tuxie/Tortie Tuesday

Here we are - on the last warm days of fall catching some rays!

It's started to get very cold here, it's been in the 30s at night. We're not sure exactly what that means to Mom and Dad, but we do know it means that we can go out at night. The rule is once it dips down below 40 - no kitties outside. If we're lucky we get to go out for a few hours after dinner, before it gets too cold.

Bert always wants to come in when he gets cold, but he has short hairs, so he gets colder faster. But I don't see why Jake and I can't stay out - we have big puffy furs to keep us warm (and they get even bigger and puffier in Winter). I sit in the hall and yell, trying to make my point, but Mom just says "no way Pearly-Mae". She always says that she doesn't want my wee tortie-toes to freeze.

I'll take what I can get for now - because once the snow is on the ground I don't like to go out till Spring!

UPDATE: I just wanted to let you know that when my Dad got home today I yelled at him to let me out, and he did! So I scampered out, happy as can be until I noticed that there was SNOW on the ground. I ran back in as quickly as my wee tortie paws would take me - and Daddy laughed and laughed (he even called Mom at work so she could have a laugh too).

Our Mommy will not let us on our screened porch at night once it starts getting colder - no matter how much we yell and complain. To get our revenge, Dante goes and lies on Mommy's head and wakes her up all night long.

I just make sure I stay warm by sleeping on top of mommy at night and refusing to let her move. The best part about it getting colder outside is that she has the electric blanket on the bed now, so there is extra snuggly warmth!

It never gets very cold where I live. My problem is it stays hot for such a long time, it is too warm to go out in my stroller. I think I would like some cold weather for snuggling.

Yeah its like that around here too. Makes me glad I never go Out of Doors of course I don't think I'd like it out there anyway, too scary!

I go to the basement at night cuz dat's where the litterbox is, an then I come back wif cold stuck to my furs, an I dive unner the covers wif Mom an Dad to get warm. It's a good arrangement - for me!

Cold means no more open windows to sit in an no more bugs comin in to play. ::sigh::

Thanks for coming to my party!

Be careful outside! It is much warmer and safer indoors. I'm only allowed outside on my harness or in my stroller when it's over +20C. I don't mind though - I'm happy indoors. :)
