After The Storm

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies!

It is Me again, the Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short)!
It has been such an exciting week, kitties, woofies and other anipals (and Human Followers)! 
We had a Snowstorm!

I have neffur seen snow before, because I was born in April and this was my furry furrst Winter. I asked Caspurr and Trixie what "snow" is and Trixie told me all about it.

It was supposed to start on Wednesday, but there wasn't really furry much snow and Trixie was furry disappointed. And I wondered what all the fuss was about. But on Furr-iday afternoon, it started again. 

Trixie jumped up onto the window-sill in the living room and got all excited as the snowflakes got bigger and bigger and came down faster and faster:

Can you see Me in the picture, kitties? I wanted to help her, but I didn't see how we could possibly catch the snowflakes, since the window was closed. I'm glad it was closed, because it was furry, furry cold!

I think part of the reason Trixie was so excited was because she caught sight of this big birdie that took shelter in a palm tree right outside the window, even as the wind rose higher and higher. The rain didn't scare the birdie, nor did the hail, and it wasn't until the snow got really serious that the birdie flew away.

Afterwards, the snow came down really heavily. Caspurr decided to go to sleep and I thought I might as well join him.

We snuggled up on the chairs by the radiator, because Mummy had put on the central heating and it was nice and warm. Trixie preferred to sit on the radiator. She is furry sensitive to the cold, you see - despite her curious liking for snowflakes.

When we woke up later in the evening, the snow had settled. This is what the windowbox in Our Room looked like:

Mummy went around with her flashy box and took pictures from all the windows - which she opened, and all the Cold Air came in! Brrrrr!!!

This is the scene in the street down below:

On the other side of the apartment, it wasn't possible to see much from the big living-room window because it was too dark, but the following morning, effurrything was white and furry, furry pretty!

So, I have learned something new, kitties. I have learned all about SNOW. And I think it's furry nice to look at, as long as you're doing the looking from a nice, warm house, and have somewhere cosy to curl up and watch it from a distance. And then, when you're tired of it, you can return to the impawtant business of life - like napping (mol).

Enjoy what's left of the weekend, anipals. And have a good week.

We agree--snow is best viewed from the inside! I plan on napping most of the day :-)

My goodness Shimshi, you are getting so big! Seems like you were just a small kitty not that long ago. Enjoy your snow!

Beautiful snow. i'm hoping to get more than a flurry. It looks like the fur babies enjoyed it.

Wow, that must have been something when you got all that snow. We got snow too. And we's best to see the snow when you're inside safe and warm.

What great excitement, Shimshi!! Your first experience of snow was a good one. I don't think it's good if you are out in it!! Keep warm!! :)

How exciting that you got to see your first snow. I've never seen snow, but your pictures make it look really interesting. But if it's cold, I don't think I'd like it.
I think Trixie has the right idea sitting on the radiator.

what an experience. We never ever have snow here. I think I might just like to enjoy the snowflakes too
