Snow, Tea and Cuddles

 Good grumpy morning from Winston kitty.  Mom says I look imperious in this photo.  Well, Mom was NOT getting out of bed like I asked her.   I am not used to having my commands ignored in such a way!
 This is why Mom didn't want to get out of bed!  Snow!   We are getting a light dusting of snow.   Mom says it looks pretty against the glowing leaves.  However, she does find it difficult to go outside sometimes.
 Mom thought this cartoon from Calvin and Hobbes pretty much summed up how she felt!   (Don't worry kitties, I know how to handle humans who don't want to leave the comfort of their duvets!)
 Once Mom gets over her initial "winter wimp" factor she enjoys her walks.  These are some pretty dark blue berries on a recent walk.
 A beautiful snow angel !   Are your humans dreading winter?  Sometimes I try to encourage Mom by showing my solidarity!  I just join her.   I ended up snuggling on her cold toes.
 Please excuse the dreadful quality of this photo.  Mom took this photo with her cell phone.  Since the time change, mornings are even darker.
 Purrs from Miss Emily.  I like lounging on the furniture and shedding all over the place.  Mom has started shopping for Christmas.
 She went to David's Tea and bought way too many teas there.  Including this lovely set of 4 different kinds of delicious tea.  Somehow, felines, the tea ended up on her counter and in her teacups instead of the gift cupboard!  How did that happen, I wonder?  (Mom says her favorite flavor so far is sleigh ride!)
 Mom also purchased a new winter coat.   Her current coat is almost 10 years old and had developed a lot of wear and tear.  PLUS--there was no hood.   BRRRR.  Mom said this coat had everything she wanted and it was on sale at almost half price.   Perhaps now she won't be as hesitant to go outside in the wintery weather?!
 Even though we are getting a light dusting of snow there are still glowy autumn leaves. Some trees (not many) are still green.  Mom liked the way the raindrops sparkled on this leaf.
 Winston and I wanted to send you an encouraging thought for the week.  This quote, from Pinterest,  what makes somebody beautiful!  In our eyes, we think somebody beautiful who is kind to us and gives us treats!  (Just saying is all!)
 We will close with these photos of us.  Miss Emily having a comfy snooze.

Winston was a toy given to us by our Mom's mom.  Her kitty, Pearl, didn't like it.  We do, though!
Purrs for a great week.

  1. Funny how different kitties like different types of toys, Winston! Miss Emily seems rather sleepy; all of her photos show her napping...with her foofoo in the air in that first pic of her. I do NOT like winter either, and am trying hard not to be all grumbly about it.

    1. Emily should be ashamed that her foofoo is in the air. You know what, though, she doesn't seem to care. I will blush on her behalf. Thanks so much for visiting!

  2. We're okay with snow, as long as we don't have to go outdoors. We'll let those beans do that! Mom bean was out shovelling the driveway this morning.

    Christmas is coming! We sure hope that means some new toys for you, Emily and Winston.

    1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Elderberries? It's nice to put a name to it. I will have to look them up. Winston and Emily say hello.

  5. Your mom should never ignore your commands. But they do, don't they ?

    1. Hi Whiskeratti,
      She ignores my commands an awful lot! It's a good thing I am so forgiving.
      Thanks for visiting.

  7. Yuck, no snow here yet but I imagine it won’t be long. Both you kitties are looking wonderful! Tell Mom I love her new winter coat, especially the colour.
    Enjoy playing with your new toy!

    1. Hi Cat Lover, Forgive the latness of our reply. Our secretary was unavailable *sigh* Thank you for the compliment. We have been getting extra naps so that may explain our exceptional appearance (purrs) Mom says thank you for the comment about her coat. She usually buys clothes in black, brown and navy. She is enjoying the purple!
      Have a great day!

  8. love, love, love that coat! I am like you, I have to have a hood. Loved when you wrote "once you got over the winter wimp factor" lol! I'm still not over it! catchatwithcarenandcody

    1. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. Mom is very excited about the coat. She didn't realize what a huge difference a hood could make in keeping warm and toasty. Yes, our Mom can be a wimp. Don't worry. We would force her into a blizzard for our kibbles! Purrs to you for a great week.

  9. The first photo of you does look rather regal. I think it's the soft focus around the edges, and the subject, of course.

    1. Hi there, Thanks for visiting. I think I like the word "regal" better than imperious. I'm going to set Mom straight on that!
      Purrs to you for a great week,
      Winston kitty
