We have winter coats

Abby: I have developed a winter coat. Ms. C says I don't quite qualify as a truly short-haired cat anymore, although I am certainly no Persian. It has been very cold around here, about 9 degrees Fahrenheit, so I really need my winter coat! I am pretty sure Stygia has one too, because her fur is a lot thicker than it was, but you can hardly tell just by looking.

Do you like my new frog pet? He seems to like me quite a bit, since I find him with me when I am sleeping. He doesn't have a name, it seems.

Stygia: The sun has not been out for any steady amount of time lately, but when it is, we take advantage of it as much as possible. It usually begins with some peaceable washing, which naturally leads to wrestling. Look at Abby's "innocent" look, I think she looks totally caught, don't you agree?
I thought you might enjoy this close up of our faces, I especially want you to notice my ferocious ears, eyes, and teeth:

Hahaha! That's what we do! A bath turns into wrestlemania!

Hope you stay warm in your new coats!

Abby, that is a very guilty look on your face.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

We never wrestle. Maybe Banshee and I will have to try that someday!

Your fur looks incredibly... well.. FURRY at the moment, Abby! You must even more wonderful to cuddle than usual! And Stygia too, doubtless!

Your Pals,

That's one way to stay warm when it's that cold. And after exercise, snuggle under something warm. Brrr. That's cold!

Daisy said...

Your winter coat looks very luxurious!

Yep, these are the ways to stay warm: winter coat and wrestling! We wrestle a lot, too!
