I-I-It's Ch-ch-chilly

C-c-can't t-t-type, p-p-paws f-f-frozen!  M-m-m-must f-f-find m-m-mom's m-m-m-m-mittens!
     Okay, I guess I'm exaggerating just a little.  It's not as cold down here as it is in some other places right now.  Hell, where grandson Eli is the windchill has been in the range of 40-50 below zero!
     And I suppose no matter how cold it gets here I should be thankful we're not still living back in Massachusetts.  This'll end soon, and in fact, it's supposed to be up around 70 sometime this weekend.
     I will say I've heard a certain pair of spoiled brats whining about moving to someplace warmer, though.  What a couple of babies, huh? It's peculiar what living close to the beach year-round can do to a person.
     I've got it made here.  Even on these cold nights I've got all I need to keep toasty and warm, and then some. 
     This is me and mom sleeping (well, at least mom's sleeping) on the futon one night recently.  No, they weren't fighting.  Mom just has trouble sleeping sometimes (I suspect at least 50% of the time it's because of my caterwauling for no damn reason during most nights lately) and gets up to sleep out in the living room.  
      How's that for a pair of glowing orbs!
     Actually, after close examination I realized these were taken one night when mom had a cold recently, now that I see the tissue and cough medicine scattered around.  Anyway, my point is that I have all the comforts I need here, so I shouldn't complain.

Complaining is a very Cat thing to do, so go ahead! hee hee
However, I'd like to say that I'd trade weather with you any time! We're seriously freezing our buns off over here in the minus temperatures!

Orbit, you make me laugh! Your humans love you so. I hope they get you to the vet for regular check-ups: meowing in the night can be a symptom...I saw it on "My Cat From Hell" show on Animal Planet!

We'd say if you are expecting temps in the 70s in the near future that complaining is definitely not allowed. Mom sleeps on the couch sometimes if Daddy is snoring, but we aren't invited, and we don't mind his storing.

It has been so cold here, too! But it's getting a bit warmer now, we are hoping it stays warm! You've got such a comfy place to sleep :-)

Orbit, You make me giggle with your first photo.
I love to nap like that with my dad too. It's just so comfy.

Happy Snooze, my friend. Thanks to stop by ; )
