More color on white

With all the snow, the cats just don't make it to the house anymore. Here's as close as they got one day awhile back... the backyard. It's Mama (the calico) and her sons from last spring... "baby kitties", as Courtney still likes to call them.

They don't look too happy, do they?

"When is all this white stuff gonna GO AWAY?"

Actually, it is starting to go away... slowly but surely. And that's the best way for it to go. If it melted too fast, we'd have a bigger mess (mud and slush) than we do now... there'd be flooding in some areas. There still probably will be... time (and temperature) will tell as to how bad it gets. It's been in the low 30's to around 40° the past week or so. I guess spring is on its way. Just so we don't get the 30-40" of snow that someone said the Old Farmer's Almanac has predicted!

I've acquired another cat outside. I don't know where she came from, she just appeared one day and stayed. She's quite tame, black with white paws, kinda like the brother to the orange guys above who just disappeared last summer. I told Courtney we ought to name the cats, and she said the black one should be called Blackie. I then asked her what we should name one of the orange ones, and she said Orangey. So I asked her what the other orange one should be called. "Orangey." :-) Of course Mama is already Mama, so that simplified the multi-color identification problem. And the other calico out there just doesn't have a name yet. We'll work on it.

That's cute. Sorta like the guys on the (2nd) Bob Newhart Show. "Hi, I'm Larry. This is my brother Darryl. And my other brother Darryl."

Sounds confusing! Haha Naming cats is complicated business, I one named mine because she kept hiding behind the computer and getting dusty! I still get mocked for that one!
