This thing called "Ice"

[re-post from former blog]


My cat had two litters of kittens this year, six in total that we know of. Only three have survived; the others we lost to a strange disapearence and two vehicle accidents.

All three of the survivors are experiencing their firsts: first summer, first rain, first fall, first frost, first snow, and now, first ice.

This morning Chace--my "teenager"--and his little sister Forte decided to go exploring and find out what happened to the giant puddle in our yard.

This morning they discovered ice.




You can tell they are wondering, "What is this stuff?"



Who says cats can't have fun?








Okay, I'll admit it. I was laughing.







One...two...three...pounce! -- without falling.



Aw. Sweet brother-sister moment.



So there you have it. The adventersome morning of two of my felines. Both of them fell through the ice at least once, and would clamber out of the shallow hole shaking themselves off...but a few minutes later, they would return to their ice-walking.

I think they like it.

  1. I love your cats, Hannah! Awesome pictures! You captured their playfulness really well. :) I love their names too - the name "Forte" especially made me grin.

  3. Sure! I have always wanted a cat, but lots of people in my family have allergies. They're such smart animals! Pet personalities are so fun - normally I don't think of them having personalities or quirks of their own, but they sure do!

  4. People in my family have some allergies too--so the pets have to stay outside ;)
    Yes! Working at the vet was really great for realizing just how many different personalities animals can have.

  5. Yup. ;) Do you have dogs too?
    Have you started work at the vet's again? I know that was sort of an on-and-off thing...

  6. We did have a dog, but last fall we decided it was time that he found a home where he could be an indoor/outdoor dog instead of strictly outdoor.
    No......sadly, I haven't. Oh well. :)
