Saturday Snapshot

Some time ago I posted a photo of Heidi in her little tepee. She still likes to sleep in it but she has other favourite places to nod off, one of which is our settee, so we cover the seat with a towel as she’s not very good at wiping her wet feet!

The other day we found her like this:

Fast asleep

She didn’t even move when David leant over towards her:

Autumn in the garden:

The leaves are falling from some of the trees now, but our little Japanese Maple is still bearing its flame-coloured leaves.

Saturday Snapshot: Cat in a Box/Basket

Heidi tries out this box, before deciding to find somewhere more comfortable.

Saturday Snapshot: Heidi doesn't like the snow

We’ve had snow and more snow, our garden and the surrounding fields are all white, but the main roads are clear, and we haven’t had the snow that’s brought some parts of the UK to a standstill.

This morning the sun is shining, and the snow is sparkling in the sunlight.

The paw prints in the snow shows that Heidi has been across it, but she’s not keen. This morning she wanted to go out through the patio door:

but she didn’t want to get her feet cold and wet:

So she came in and tried the back door, but that was no better:Snow Heidi (3) 26 Jan 13

She stayed away from the snow and soon came back inside the house.
