Hi felines. Oscar here. Guess what?! I turn 18 this month. Mom says we should have a month of celebrations for me. I don't know but I guess I can handle it. This photo is me and Winston enjoying a sunny spring like day. Winston is quite a bit bigger than I am now. I'm just a little under 8 pounds at my last vet visit. Mom keeps lots of food out for us and I even get a special high protein wet food. It's delicious! Perhaps Mom will treat me to more of it because it's my birthday month!
So the view from our window shows us enjoying a sunny day--that was one of the nice days! As you can see, though, we have had an ice storm as well. These poor snow drops were encased in ice.
Mom says it gives her heart little sparkles to see us cuddling and getting along so well. Winston graciously allowed me to share the window and sunbeam. Well, that is what he thinks anyway!
See this next photo? Well, a few days after the ice storm we got snow! There were even white outs.
Mom got caught in one while she was on a walking errand. We wisely held back our giggles when she came back inside dripping snow water!
We think snow looks pretty. Our eyes like to follow the dancing snowflakes. Emily likes to bat at them sometime. Crazy youngster! Guess I used to do that too.
I just like to watch what is going on outside and soak up the golden sun. See! I knew if I waited long enough Winston would leave. The window is all mine now!
It doesn't seem like it now but soon this will give way to this....
pretty little flowers Mom doesn't know the name of!
and more blossoms!
I'll close with this photo of me and Emily. If I don't she will feel offended and left out! It's about a year and a half ago when I could still jump up on the bathroom counter. Thankfully, I've trained Mom to lift me up onto the sofa for naps. She refuses to lift me up to the counter, though. She thinks I'll fall.
So--what do you think Mom should do for me? I saw an excellent blog post a few days ago with a kitty named Cody and his Mom got him 3 different kinds of the nip! At my age, the nip is purely medicinal.
Purrs to all for a great week!
