Snow Cats

This morning, we had a sprinkling of snow! Probably not quite even one inch, but enough to get everything white. This is a Big Deal in this part of Texas. We have had temperatures of 18F/-8C this week, as cold as we have ever known it here. Until this morning, it remained very dry, but last night some moisture rolled in, so we got snow.

The cats have never seen snow before, so we were looking forward to seeing what they'd make of it.

As you can see, they had a great time, before getting a bit chilly and wanting back in.

Finally, here is a short video of the moment at which they were let outside... this is the very first time they encounter the white stuff! Normally, when we let them out in the morning, they will go out, sniff the air, scratch the balcony support poles and be on their way. Snow obviously turns them into kittens again :-)
