Purrsday Night - Snow ski? No ski.

Have to share this cat "action" shot I saw over at webshots. Take a look at the rest of this very cute photo album here.

As for Henry, he's been known to pounce snow before, way back in the day (although he didn't have flair like the ginger boy above who looks like he's got invisible skis and poles), but those days are over. For one thing, it really doesn't snow enough to count here. The natives might tell you it snows here, but I've been here for 7 years, came here from the midwest, and heartily disagree. Back in 2004 we got 2-3 inches, which was enough to make THE most pathetic snowmen you can imagine if you scraped most of it up in a pile. Then, a year ago we had ice for 2-3 days, but it was mostly menacing, not pretty and pounceable. Besides, Henry is much more interested in laying around and being warm (and so say we all). In fact, the hotter, the better.

Love the images of "ginger boy" in the snow.

As usual, Henry has just the sweetest face - and he certainly has his priorities straight.

Momma put me in a little snow pile once because I just "had" to go see what the white stuff was! Ever since I've been content to lay infront of a fire. :) ~Queen Snickers
