That's too funny! Scarlett goes after falling leaves the same way.
My dear friend who lives out your way has a polydactyl cat who loves frolicking in the snow. She lets her boys out in their fenced back yard under supervision. Elwood not only leaps at the falling flakes, but he tries to make snowballs and flings them at the other cats. I really think he takes advantage of the fact that he has an oposable thumb.
Don't be too jealous about the snow. It was done by noon and pretty much gone by around 2:00.
Ginger was just fascinated by it through the window. She did that about 4 times and thankfully we had the camera ready the last time. Funny thing is that this isn't the first time she's seen snow. She saw plenty of it last year!
