For the moment we have 8 cm (3.1 inches) of snow, which is probably not a lot but for Brussels it is rather exceptional. It's also very cold up to - 14°C (6.8 F) since the Global Warming meeting in Copenhagen.

The result is that no cat puts a paw outside except Kim who sleeps in the snow (!!! she is crazy) when the sun is shining.

Arthur since last week has moved his sleeping place again. Now he is not my bed rug anymore, he choose to warm my feet and squats my bed now.

Here I say hello to him when I wake up, he ignores me of course

and this is the view I have now every morning when I open my eyes. I noticed that my bed has shrinked, because I only have a little space to sleep.

Rosie starts her first quick washing action

Pookie saw the light and looked in the room to see, if I get up for her breakfast.

Rosie is not pleased at all with her sister's visit. They are still "loving" ennemies.

I too prefer to stay inside when I have no shopping to do and this is the view I have when I am sitting at my computer, either both

or Arthur alone

and when he is not laying on my bed, he irons the laundry which dries on the heating and decorates them with his white hairs.

to all of you !

hahaha, sweet, just adorable post!
Hello dear friends,
This is my first time at Cats on Tuesday, thanks so much for so cool meme!
I think you friends are really smart, the best place to be is in mommy's bed!I liked it a lot!
Here is snowing as well,and yesterday mommy let me to see the snow at the balcony. So, I went outside but I need to confess I gave up because it's sooo cold and my little paws were wet! What a mess! I had a hard work to clean myself after it! :)
Beautiful post dear friends, thanks for sharing!
purrs and love

They do lay claim to the beds in the winter, which is good if your feet are cold.
Merry Christmas!

katztales said...

You need a bigger bed, Gattina! Or perhaps Arthur should diet a little???

Wishing you a Merry Christmas filled with nip and other goodies!


Yes a bigger bed to please the kitties! Softest and warmest place when the temperatures go down!
Wishing you Froehliche Weihnachten!

michico*Adan said...

Michico's bed is not big enough as well.
right now She and Arion sleep on the same pillow, and me & Lego sleep on another half bed.
Aren't we king!

By the way, Rosie still very adorable!

I don't seem to mind my cats decorating my linen with different cat hair colour now.

My youngest girl used Halle, the matriarch cat, as her water bottle at winter.

That's all that interests her about the cat. Give them a tickle, play with them for a little while, the rest of the job all go to Me!

I love my cats and so are you.

Have a warm safe snowy season.

Luna, Luzie and Olli said...

Here we have a lot of new snow this morning too. Unfortunately the forecast says that it will be warmer until Christmas and no more snow :(
I read that Kim sleeps outside in the snow. It is the same with Luzie. She also prefer to sleep outside in every weather. I tried to let her inside the last days.
We also shelter the poor tabby neighbor cat during the cold days and he is very thankful.
*Happy Tuesday*

Our beds do seem smaller when we share with our furry kids.

I know all about hair on the clothes especially on my black pants. Marshmellow is always happy to spread his fur around.


Milo and Alfie said...

Merry Chrismouse and a Happy New Year to yoo all.

We love it that Arthur is SO helpful (wot wiv ironing and thoughfully spreading his furs!). We think he deserves EXTRA treats for being so good!

AL said...

Well Prudence can't stay on my bed, it's Coffee's(poodle) territory, she and Muning sleeps in a basket, as usual on the sink!

I like Arthur's pose ironing the laundry MOL! Arthur, can you give Muning some ironing tips?

Merry Christmas Gattina!

Oh dear, my comment disappeared!
Your kitties are smart. They know the best spots to hang out.

Merry Christmas!

Irishcoda said...

LOL, cats make the best foot warmers, don't they? Munchkin has taken to sleeping under the covers with me ... way under. I woke up this morning and realized where she was and had to nudge her because I worried she'd smothered. I wonder how they can breathe under all those covers? Merry Christmas to you & Mr. G & your gang, Gattina!

We seem to have less room on our bed these days too! We had a lot of snow on Saturday and Trixie ventured out into it. I thought for sure she would stay inside like Lucy.

catsynth said...

We certainly can't blame the cats for staying inside when it gets that cold.
It is nice to be able to see the cats from the computer desk.

Linens and Royals said...

Happy Christmas Gattina and to Mr G. and all the cats. I wouldn't go outside either if I ever saw that much snow.I think it is very nice that so many people share their bed with cats. Well we don't really have any choice do we? once a cat owns us.

TorAa said...

Dear Gattina,
I'm really proud, believe it or not, to spend 30 minutes this late night to be back on COT and even post.

You will perheps understand, I hope.

Ginger said...

Ah, I am glad to give up bed space to my babies. The last two nights one of the new boys, Humpty Dumpty,, has slept next to my feet. I am thrilled!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

ha ha ha that is so funny Arthur! You are a bit help with that laundry. You and Rosie look cute on the bed. Are you snuggle buddies yet?

I hope you got a lot of breakfast Pookie. And that you didn't have to wait long.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Thank you for the lovely ecard! We are going to put up a post with our cards tomorrow. You are very talented!
