Another Cold One.

A little chilly this morning.
Yep, I really need to wash the window now.

There was the promise of sunshine, but it didn't last long, and it has turned into another of those cold, grey, windy, wintery days

Some creatures are spending 95% of their time doing this.  And when she does get up, and you put her outside the door at the front of the house, hoping she will do her thing out there, well by the time you are back upstairs she is already clawing at the back door, 
Let me in, let me in, don't you remember what that thermometer said....

There were a few accidents, which Luna was happy to inform me of.
Crunch, crunch, crunch.....kitty roca, mmm good.
Most dog owners can relate.
Not exactly what I want to hear as I'm sitting here at the computer

So that means we had to resurrect the dreaded litter box

.  The litter box is in an awkward spot, but that's were Smudge has chosen, so to make sure she uses it, that's where the box has to go.  You gotta do what you gotta do. 
My apologies to all the really responsible cat owners out there who keep their cats safe inside all the time, and deal with a litter box 365 days of the year.  It's just not my thing.  Maybe it's just that there never seems to be a good place to put the litter box.

Here's Jake and Luna keeping themselves warm yesterday, which wasn't as cold as today.  After watching it a few times, I noticed a difference between Jake and Luna's tails.  Jake's tail is in a 'softer' position more often than Luna's, and it is Luna that is making all the noise.  She is playing, but she's taking it pretty seriously.  It's interesting though, if she gets a bit too rough, Jake will get after her and she'll go down and he'll grip her muzzle a few times.
And yet, I've seen Luna move Jake off a bone from 10 feet away with just a look. 
The relationship between two dogs can be a convoluted thing.


  1. Our cats are fair weather cats as well.
    Ryker reminds me of Jake. He loves other dogs but if he gets picked on he can raise his hackles and give them cause to think! I happens so rarely that I am always a bit surprised.

  2. Just a bit chilly, like freezing our tails off!

  3. Oh yes, cat cookies. Ours was indoor/outdoor but there was always a litter box in the basement just in case. Of course keeping the dog away from it was always a challenge.
    No... I .... don't .... want .... a ... doggy ... kiss ... from ... you!!!!

  4. Brrrrrrrr love the clip of the dogs playing :0)

  5. 20 degrees! I'd be yowlin at the door too! :)
