Purring on Thursday

Well when it’s this danged cold, what’s a guy supposed to other than hibernate – right?   I mean we haven’t had all that snow like folks up north have but when you wake up and the thermometer says TWELVE degrees and the wind’s blowing, you just know it’s PRETTY COLD.

SO, Mom snapped these shots of “this old guy” yesterday………….this is ME doing what I do best………….

I call this the "pre-sleep trance" position.....

This is the “If you’d get that danged camera out of my face I’d put my head down and sleep” position!

 

I have no exciting stories of what I did outside when I was out there with Mom because while I have stuck my NOSE out the door a few times, I did not stick the REST of me out there.   No way.   And to think that in my youth (or at least a few years ago when I was younger than now) I used to do THIS!

Sam looking mighty small in the snow

Brrrrr!

I musta been nuts back then…..

I’ve been saving this for when I redo my blog header after Thanksgiving – because I definitely want to use it in my Holiday blog header……….but I love it SO MUCH I want to show you what my beautiful friend Nellie –  Cat From Hell (although I think she’s heavenly) did for me – won’t it look FAB-U-LICIOUS on a Holiday header for my bloggy??????    Thank you Nellie Bellie!

  1. We are with you, Mr. Sammy! We spending our time being warm. Santa Sammy is adorable! You gonna have a superb-u-lous holiday header. Yup. Mumsy says instead of sitting on Santa’s lap, she’d cuddle Santa Sammy on her lap 🙂
    Hugs!

    • Hi Kwees!!! Nice to see you….I’m glad you’re staying warm. It’s dreadfully cold – I’m wondering when the Scouts visit the North Pole next month if we’ll have to wear snowsuits while we feed Santa’s reindeer!!!! Glad you like my Santa Sammy badge Nellie made….isn’t it grand? Can’t wait to do my Christmas header on my blog!!!!! Hope to see you guys soon at Scouts.

      Hugs, sammy

  2. I wonder if I would like snow? Every few years, a couple of towns closer to the mountains get a little snow (really only a couple inches), and my human says that if that happens this year, she is taking me up to check it out! Okay, so it’s not like what you East Coasters get, but it’s probably the best I can do for now.

    • Summer, snow is interesting…..it’s cold on the feet but tastes pretty good…….these pix of me in the snow were from way back but I DID enjoy following Mom around in the yard….she’d make paths for me with her boots and I’d travel in the paths – she thought it was fun to make a kind of “maze” in the snow for me to follow. Humans are weird sometimes BUT it was kinda fun! If you ever do get to see snow, I’ll be anxious to hear how you like it!

  3. I can see the invisible “OMMMMMM” in your pre-sleeping photo :o)
    Mom said she will start her x-mas shopping on black friday… and just between us, she thinks black friday is this week…. my dad decided to remain silent… think that’s a kind of special surprise for my mom :o) I will have the cam ready to paw, think the picture of her face on NON-black friday will be priceless…..

    • Hi Charles!!!! Great to hear from you……….yes indeed I’ve learned since the old days of romping in the snow that being INSIDE on a fleece blankie near a heat register makes so much more sense than freezing my feet off in the snow!!!! Glad you like Nellie’s badge she made for me – it’s way cool!

    • I’m excited about Christmas this year…..well, let’s be honest – I’m always excited. Anyway, my header will have Nellie’s picture of me and I think that will make it super special……We got hit with ridiculous cold but this afternoon here it’s 54 which feels like the Bahamas! Weird weather……but at least it’s not 8 feet of snow!

    • Know what? I agree! Hibernation is the answer…..that means a lot of animals are just plain SMARTER than we are because that’s what they do – they just crawl in a hole, get all warm and snuggly and WAIT for the weather to get better. Sounds good to me!

  13. Geez, your weather doesn’t sound much nicer than ours. It was +3 C or 38 F yesterday. Today it’s raining. Actually this is above normal for us but we’ll be seeing snow again tomorrow as it goes to 0 C or 32 F.

    You were really brave to dash through the snow back then. Don’t we do silly things when we’re younger? I could tell you stories that would make your hair stand on end. When I was 16, we all drove over to a friends farm to have a bonfire. But first, we climbed up a tall haystack to watch the stars and drink beer. We were all teasing each other about falling off when suddenly the corner I was sitting on gave way and me and a friend fell probably 16 feet to the ground. He hit the ground first and I hit him. I cracked my chin open on his eye socket. We both ended up in ER for stitches. The moral of the story? Always sit in the MIDDLE of a haystack. hehe.

Then staying with Julia of Defeat Despair in Yorktown Virginia and also Laurie of Life On A Bike. Do you live far from Yorktown? I think that’d be fab if we could swing it xox

        • Oh Boomdee that would make me happy but we are quite far from Yorktown…….we’ve been there before when we’ve visited Williamsburg though and you will love it. Southern Virginia is GORGEOUS. Washington, DC is insane but there’s a lot to see there’s no denying that! I have a small scar under my chin from my slide accident “way back when” but with all the chins I have these days (hahahahaha) nobody notices it but ME!

Glad you like my header – I’ll be fixing up my Christmas “look” in a couple of weeks (well probably right after Thanksgiving really). I hope your Mom recovers quickly.
