Welcome 2018!...well, sorta...

Folks, we are in bitter cold in Michigan.  I've spent my holiday time off from work keeping warm, visiting with friends, and hanging out with The Hubby, family...and Angel, Manny and Chili Bruce.  One complete day was spent in my pajamas!

I wanted to hang out with The 'O' Cats too, but the brutal temperatures allowed me to only stand for as long as I can pet them, feed them bowls of kibble, and break off the ice in their water bucket, replacing it with fresh.

There are a lot of posts to come, but for now I'll simply leave you with The PO'M and Sweetie soaking in some warm sunshine while eating their dinner.

Hope you all had an enjoyable holiday season!

Now come on, 2018...do we really have to be colder than ALASKA?!?

Love this video! Always love the little noises kitties make when they eat. :) Happy new year and all the best to you and your family in 2018!

I live in Florida. It's very cold in Florida. Just wayyyy too cold everywhere. It's like the flip side to all the crazy hurricanes we had earlier.

Great vid! Stay warm.
(so sorry about Chucky. I just read your comment. Been out of the kitty loop)

The Swiss Cats said...

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We've been freezing our butts off! We can't even imagine how Sweetie and POM feel. Happy New Year! We celebrated by spending almost an entire day in bed ... priorities, right? ;)

Madi and Mom said...

We hear you and it was 12 real temp in NC this am 64 in the house when we woke up too even with the furnace churning. Just too cold for what equipment is used to handling. Stay warm
Hugs and Happy New Year madi and mom

We've been reading about the colder than cold temps in many areas of north America. Brrrrr!

Purrs,

The Island Cats said...

This cold has got to go! But I hear it may only get worse. :(

Jean Neilson said...

The kitties are darling. How nice you feed the O'Cats and provide water. We are providing water from a dish we plug in to keep the ice off the water. It's very cold here too.

Stay warm, O'Cats!

I love the cold but it has definitely been brutal! My heart hurts for animals that have to be outside.

Brian said...

It's nice to see them enjoying their mealtime!!!

Sending warm purrs to the O cats..

Tamago said...

Here in Georgia, it's not as cold as Michigan but still very cold! Lovely to see Sweetie and Patty enjoying the meal :-)

The Indulged Furries said...

The O' cats don't seem to be bothered by the cold. Hopefully they're finding a few sunny and "warmer" places during the day. But it's still so bitterly cold, you'd think they'd want to come inside.

Fur Everywhere said...

Yow!!!! It has been cold here, but not THAT cold! I'm glad your babies have a little sun to eat under, at least. I hope it warms up there for you all soon!

Roby Sweet said...

I'm hoping for a heat wave, so maybe the temps will at least get up to freezing! It must be so hard on the outside critters to be this cold.

Rosa @ Cat Lady Confidential said...

I hope that cold goes away soon! Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Oh gosh, too cold! Too cold! Here, I'll send you some SoCal sunshine. (My sister will be visiting from Michigan later this month - she's looking forward to the warmer weather here!!!)

Hairballsandhissyfits.com said...

hey I know what you are going through - here up in Canada near Toronto we are at -21! Good to see your outdoor kitties in good shape!

Deziz World said...

Oh we want them to come inside so bad. We've had 3 days below 0 and know that's totally common fur ya'll. It ain't weather fur man nor cat. We're sendin' big hugs and purrayers.

Luv ya'

Dezi and Raena

We in SE Wisconsin are tiring of the bitter cold and look forward to "warm" temps in the 20s.

Kitty Cat Chronicles said...

It's colder than ALASKA there?!? That's crazy!!! Hope it starts to warm up soon. For everyone's sake - kitties and humans!
