Morning at the Mansion...

The sun rose awhile ago, but it never shines on our side of the hill until 10:30 AM at this time of year.  OT and Big Kitty thought they'd have some time alone, but they have company on top of the hay bale.  Timbit is skulking around behind, hoping to sneak by without notice, but Pinkerton isn't quite that smart.

He thinks if his eyes are closed, no one can see him but...really, OT heard him coming...

I'll take the mud!!

There you have it!

H"C"S and Whiskers each picked up a foot while sacrificing 6 other feet to the bitter cold.

That was yesterday.

Today we have +2 C and Saturday they say we'll hit +6.  Believe me, that is going to be a toasty warm day.

Mansion cats will be basking in the sun cleaning mud off their toes by Sunday.

Cold feet vs. muddy toes?

He's fired!!

So guess what!

The weatherman lied!  It's not warmer's 10 degrees colder!! :/

It's surprising to see the cats out in the snow at all on a day like today......tough old barn cats I guess.  Who do you suppose is trying to warm their toes, one foot at a time today?  By the way, that was the Big Kitty yesterday.  Good guessing, people.:)

Warm 'em up, one at a time!!

Winter has landed in Southern Alberta.  We're looking at -15 C as a high today.  Maybe warmer tomorrow, warmer than that the next day and then back into the deep freeze for Friday and the weekend.

Its no wonder Barn Cat Mansion cats are getting cold feet!!

Do you have an idea who this cold footed critter might be?

Oh My Gosh!!

You can't even imagine our relief when we figured this out.  Look closely behind LOBE on both sides and you'll see something recognizable.....


She obviously jumped up to scare LOBE and yell


but was moving so fast the camera captured her as a ghostly apparition.  Whew!!!

An unwelcome guest....

The mini Whiskers  moved when LOBE wouldn't.  Our one little girl kitten jumped up to finish what her brother started.

That's when it happened!!

A ghostly apparition appeared behind LOBE and he didn't even notice.  Big Kitty was right.  Those things really were left behind.


Do they hang around until next Halloween waiting for someone to pick them up?

Move over!! (please)

The little Whiskers look alike got bored with the lecture and directed his attention to the task at hand.

That task became an obsession.

What is the task we're talking about?

Simply to count the growth rings in the stump on which they sit!  How does one small cat complete such a delicate task with a big galoot like LOBE sitting on half of the stump?
Maybe just politely ask him to move!

LOBE showed no emotion when Whiskers' "Mini Me" said he was bored.  LOBE didn't move a muscle when the little cat asked him to play.  LOBE didn't even care that it was late and soon darkness would envelop the BCM Sports Field directly behind him.
He just didn't care!!!

He was listening intently to a lecture presented by Big Kitty and Orangey Tail regarding ghosts, ghouls and goblins left behind by this year's Halloween.
"You mean they're still here???"
