Cat and mouse chase in the snow

We finally got some snow last night, Nice thick powdery snow which I thought Millie and Dexter would love to play around in. But no. After years of loving the snow, Millie put one paw outside, said too cold and came back indoors.

When she finally did come outside, no amount of roughhousing from Dexter could persuade Millie that it would be fun to play in the snow. This picture of Dexter isn't very good but I wanted to get a picture of his pyjama legs! The long fur that he has on his legs, that looks like snazzy seventies flares or a pair of cool boots. I don't clip his fur (he would never stay still that long), it's just the way it grows. But on a snowy day, it  just traps all the snow.

Dexter's amazing furry legs

The snow also told us the story of what happened in the garden last night. See these little mouse prints, (you have to look hard) well looks like they ran into some cat paw prints.

Then the cat had a little stand on the frozen pond, hopefully not trying any ice hole fishing. You can just make out a fish under the middle paw print. Don't worry - I have made a big hole in the pond for the fish.

The birds managed to dig the snow out of the way so they could have some breakfast!


  1. Hi!! Thanks for following my blog.

    I'm in love with Dexter's super furry legs already.

    We have LOADS of snow here in Staffordshire and I could have done with some furry feet to keep me warm today.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  4. Hi Y'all,

    My Human used to keep coi in a garden pond that was quite deep, but the Great Blue Herons and the Egrets ate them. She always kept the pump running down deep to keep the water open and circulating. She gave up on Coi and went to gold fish.

    Y'all come by now,
