First off, I would like to thank our special friend, Vampy Victor
for the following award.



Thank you so much!!!!!!!! This really is a pretty award.

The weather during the day has been quite warm but I know winter is coming. The chill has crept into to air when the sun goes down and the PM started a fire in the wood stove a couple of days ago.

I sit under the fir trees midday, watching the cows and enjoy being out while I can.





Once the ground gets frozen, I stay in until the Spring thaw. Ice peeing is for crazy apricot cats.

Congratulations on your award:)

If we could look at a view like that, our furry butts would probably freeze to the ground while we were busy gazing. It's beautiful, and you are beautiful looking out there:)

Such a lovely landscape, Shade. We can understand that you would want to be inside when it's cold, but it does seem a shame not to pee on the ice.

Sen and Tom said...

You look very thoughtful, Shade! We hope you get to enjoy the outdoors a little longer.

Shade, your view is wonderful, but I agree, ice peeing is not a fun thing to do!

Happy Belated Thanksgiving you guys! I'm sorry we're late, but no less heartfelt, in wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

those are beautiful beautiful views. "ice peeing" snicker, that should be a Winter sport. it takes a real Mancat to do that...perhaps including a name???

You look like my new sister Bennette, only bigger! I don't know if I'll get a chance to try ice peeing this year...we mostly get rain here.

Concats on the award! You are surrounded by such beautiful landscape. I bet it is beautiful covered in snow and ice too..when viewed from a snuggly spot indoors.
