2. *raises eyebrow* That, sir, looks like a...pitbull.

According to many on DU, the breed should be executed at will, on sight and with extreme prejudice!

What say you, purveyor of pitbull propaganda?

3. Ha..my poor cats keep wanting out, then demand to be let in

Every 5 minutes, it seems.
I think they want the summer magic wall that moves
but all they get is a blast of artic air from the winter magic wall that moves.

13. same boat here...

our cat is normally an outside animal, but we bring him in from time to time... especially nights like the next few. the problem is, he would RATHER be outdoors where he gets to play tiger. of course, about 10 minutes in this stuff and he's begging to come back in...

14. They're looking for the door into summer

Robert Heinlein wrote a SciFi book with that tittle. If memory serves, the main character, Dan, had a constant companion, Pete the cat. Dan and Pete once lived in a house with 7 doors to the outside. In winter Pete would ask to go out at each of the doors hoping one of them would be the door into summer.

At least that's how I remember it.

16. ohh..you just gave Mr. Dixie away.

LOL!!
He used the "door into summer" remark about our cats a week ago, and I thought he was so clever.
NOW I know where that came from.

but, tis, true, as I commente upthread.
We have 4 doors to outside.
The cats prefer the one closest to where ever I just sat down.

17. Our two outside cats could go in the barn where we actually have some heat but the want out all the

time. Today I fixed two blanket nests in our back porch (unheated) for them and put food in the feeder. The youngest has not shown up yet and I am worried. I also gave the older one fresh water.

Animals usually have such a good sense of survival. Why is it that these cats are ignoring the danger in this weather.

19. Mine usually wants to go out.

In summer she'll go out on the porch and sunbathe, and I think she thinks it's that warm year-round. So when it's cold and she's begging to go out, I'll open the door, she'll get a sniff of the cold air, and turn tail. But with this cold snap, she's hiding. The last I saw of her she was in the basement under the couch, with just her tail sticking out.

5. All accounted for and nestled snug in their beds.

Some in *our* bed. I'm not sure where the cat has gone to. He's probably waiting for me to go to sleep so he can have the satisfaction of waking me up as he bulldozes his way under the covers.

10. I'm with you, safeinOhio

Rufus, a stray who's been coming around for months off and on has finally landed indoors. He's a dear boy and my other kitty and Chihuahua are slowly adjusting to him. We call him 'The Cat Who Came for Christmas. And stayed."

It's not nearly as cold in L.A. as everywhere else, but Rufus seems to appreciate 3 or 4 squares a day and finding sunny spots indoors on which to recline.

Congratulations on your new family member - does s/he have a name yet?

15. Porch Cat.

My old long time cat buddy passed away a month or so ago. Porch Cat showed up a week later and is also a black and white long hair that looks a lot like the old girl.

21. That is weird how they show up, isn't it?

We lost a sweet short hair black cat ( snake bite)
and a year later, a smokey grey short hair cat showed up.
That cat, after a few days of hanging around, followed our tuxedo cat into the house, walked over to the buffet
where we store the cat food, sat down and meowed, once.
The Golden did not even lift his head as the cat walked by him. ( very spooky)
Looks just like the deceased cat in size, build, every way... but grey coat. Vet says he is about a year old.
I finally named him Bailey.
( won't you come home, Bill Bailey......)

11. No can do

They've never been left outside. I have one warming my feet as I type, and two nestled on their beds in the bedroom.

23. pony has 3 blankets on...

 

innermost blanket is a puffy insulated one. next layer is fuzzy lined. outer layer is a lined rainsheet. She's so well insulated that the snow that fell on her the other day was still like confectioners sugar on top of her the next day. Underneath, she is warm. I haven't found her shivering yet.

I'm used to the icicle whiskers. I just don't remember seeing her with icicle eyelashes before....
