Cat-on-the-Go

Thanks for your concern about my toesies in the snow, every-buddy. I have big, tough mancat paws as you know, so I can walk into the snow and be okay. I think about 5 minutes is enough to prove how tough I am.

We got an ice storm this week, too:


This week we had: snow; sleet; freezing rain; rain; warm sun to make everything slushy and muddy. This results in muddy paws. Some of you might remember that sometimes I get muddy paws:


It is hard work to maintain the feets:





But that's what ya gotta do to keep your paddy paws soft and white and pink.

Haha we often come in wiv our paws looking like that. Mum sez it always seems to be when she has cleaned the floor. We haf to ask though, why is your back leg still stuck up in the air when you're cleaning a front one?

wow, you are brave. i think your mommy should warm up some towels to keep your paws warm after such a brave trip outside in the cold.
perhaps stinky goodness in "bed" while wrapped in a warm towel.

You are very good at cleaning your toesies! That was a lot of mud though, I hope you commanded that your humans get most of it off for you. Sometimes it is not so good to eat a lot of dirt. At those times it is good to have humans to do things for you!

Very meticulous paw grooming. We're glad you survives you 5 minutes of snow walking. Ice storms do not sound like much fun, Mom says she remember them from growing up in New England. Winters are why she doesn't live there anymore. Stay warm & toasty.
