Keeping Up with the Piney Woods Cats


This is what they posted this afternoon about the snowstorm we are going to get. YIKES. It started snowing in the past hour.

We live in the area that says 14-18 inches target area. Mum got more stuff so that the snow eating monster will run. But she says if it is that deep her little machine will have a hard time eating the snow.

Mum also stocked up on food for the birdies today, we had gone through over 160 pounds of bird seed since Thanksgiving. The deep snow and cold weather makes the birdies very hungry.

Mum says it is time to snuggle on the couch. I agree!

UPDATE: Wednesday about 5 PM. I have been napping lots today and watching the birdies at the feeders in the storm. Mum had to refill all of the feeders late this afternoon. The birdies had eaten everything mum put out yesterday!

Mum worked from home, the company even sent out an e-mail to tell people to stay home.

We have had about 10 inches of snow so far. It is still snowing. Mum has used the snow eating monster three times today. Just to have it eat smaller amounts of snow at one time.

Guess we will continue to snuggle tonight.

Good times a'coming in terms of napping. I've decided to share my tips on how to enhance your napping experience. I hope they will help you with marathon napping during a snow storm.

By the way, what exactly is snow? It was hot at my place today. Like summer time hot.
My people feed birds but we don't have snow.
