The Weather Outside is Frightful

How many of you are traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday? It sounds like it might be a good week to hunker down and enjoy a warm fire. According to

Nap CatsMessy travel conditions due to brutal cold, snow and episodes of wind will remain a big concern in the West early in the week. Meanwhile, more rounds of rain and snow will also shift into the Plains and Great Lakes through much of Thanksgiving week.

Last week’s snowfall in New York’s Capital Region gave our household a practice run in snuggling. The animals have since geared up (down?) for the seasonal shift, settling in for their long winter nap. Our snoozing, cuddling cats and yawning, stretching dogs prove, once again, that naps can be an exciting adventure.

Wishing you woolly warmth this holiday week and always!


  1. this was soooo calm, peaceful, adorable….precious….I have blasted it on every social networking site that I am a part of!

    Have a blessed, happy, healthy and delicious holiday!


    • Thanks, Caren! That was very sweet of you. I didn't get to respond before the holiday was in full swing, but I hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday weekend!

  2. I could go for a long winter nap about now. Instead I'm gearing up to take my dog outside into the sub zero temperatures. How come I'm stuck with pets who love the cold weather? Even the cat is living it up. It's so unfair.

    • In fairness, Kristine, Shamus (our Newf) loves the cold. I'm just grateful we have a dog yard so I don't have to walk him through the tundra. He could stay out there all day! Good luck to you and yours. I'm pulling for you, especially since winter hasn't even officially begun!
