Cats in snow

If you have looked at my blog for the past two days you  know that the Jerusalem region was treated to a rare snowfall on Thursday.
Ten inches!

It was only the second time in her life for 6-year-old Shachar to feel snow underfoot.
She walked through it as gingerly as possible. 
Two legs down, two legs up, way up.

Lara, Shachar's mother, wanted nothing of it.
She tried to stay high and dry.

The little cat paw prints looked delicate,

compared to the much bigger canine prints.
Or--maybe this was the jackal I saw in the snow of 2008!

(All photos can be much enlarged.)

Yes, cats and snow don't often mix. Our 5 stay close to the wood-stove in the winter. Lovely photos. Deb

How cute! I like cats when I see these cute photos:-) And I particularly like the shadow in the first one.

Never dull watching our animal companions, Dina.
I'll dream of the they sing like coyotes?

My cats get mad just when it gets cold. They won't get off the porch if it snows.

These are really cute pictures. I love the paw prints!!

Happy weekend!:-)

Cats and water/snow are not friends indeed. Beautiful pictures!

These are darling photos. I feel for these critters, but Shachar, at least, seems to be having an adventure.

Lovely cats!
But I'm with Lara, she has the right idea!

Cloudia, the jackals sing in a funny chorus. Follow the link in this post to hear a short audio clip I made.

This is quite fun: dogs like it better!

Wonderful shots, I enjoyed looking at these as we are in a heatwave here.

Pat said...

Cute shots! They've had enough snow for a lifetime now!

10 inches?!?! That would be a lot for Chicago also. That is just so amazing. The kitties must have been so puzzled.

Schnee in Jerualem, das kommt wohl nicht all zu oft vor?
