What a beautiful mom-cat! Are your cats traditionals, appleheads, or wedgies? I love all cats, but as you can tell from my name I'm a little partial to the meezers (although I might have to change my name now that I have an orange and white cat, too )
I let my kitty out in the snow last week just to demonstrate to him that it isn't a place he would like to be. He made the dash and immediatly slid across the deck. He looked pretty alarmed. He ran back to the door alternating between front paws, holding them up in little fists and kind of looking at them like they were injured. I guess it was his first time realising the concept of "cold."
