Mancat Monday With Snow Cat Odin

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)

Merlin and Nou Nou are sitting on the sidelines this week and not interested in Mancat Monday Adventures with Snow Cat Odin. They’re okay but prefer to hang out in a cozy, warm spot instead of going outside in the snow, like ME, SNOW CAT ODIN! And yes, there really is a website for cats like me, called Adventure Cats. Their motto is “living nine lives to the fullest”. Yes, yes, yes!

I am true to my Viking heritage name. Bold and daring, bravely going where no cat has gone before!

I love snow and boy, did we have a long wait for the white stuff. The big storm on the weekend dumped a few feet in some places like D.C.and Baltimore but we got off easy with only one or two feet in the NYC area. I go out every day rain or shine, sleet or snow no matter what. I’m a little OCD and go nuts without a lot of exercise. I’m supervised, not that I need any. Trust me, I’m not stupid and know when it’s raining you know what, to come back quick. What I usually do is go out, make my rounds (my turf includes about 6 properties and 5 acres), sniff every bush, climb every tree zoom back home to fuel up, warm up if need be and go out again. And again and again and again. I have my humans well trained to attend to my needs. Most of the time. They refuse to let me out in thunderstorms or blizzards. Spoil sports!
Anyway, there I was itching to get out on the full moon, looking out the window at those yummy, big flakes falling. I wanted to catch me some but nooooooo, I wasn’t allowed to go outside until it looked safe. Domino, who lived outside for seven years as a feral still loves going out but no longer likes snow. A quick 5-minute walkie and he trots back inside to the comfort of electric heating pads and cashmere pillows. He’s entitled to slow down since he’s a senior so I was the only one to enjoy the frozen wonderland. Yipee! This was taken last year and you can see he’d already lost his snow mojo.

My first time is always a happy run out the door like in this short video. The snow was still falling but the winds had died down and I whined until I got my wish. I know I’m spoiled. ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM!

The next morning, the sun came out so bright I needed shades. Of course, I zoomed out but jumped on the railing first to get a better view of the lunar landscape. Wow, isn’t nature magical? But nature keeps changing day by day so enjoy what’s beautiful and if you’re not crazy about your weather: wait, it’ll change, sometimes as quickly as a swish of a cat’s tail.


Bye for now. It was fun hanging out with you. Stay warm or cool (my down under pals) safe and sound this week living, loving and purring loud!
