X Games For Kitties

We had a beautiful snowfall overnight - the soft, fluffy kind that you love to play in...and even enjoy shoveling.  Schools are closed today so I expect there will be lots of snowmen appearing in front yards.  I might even build one myself :) 
Maddie doesn't much care for snow;  he walks through it gingerly, and with disdain on his face.

Polly, on the other hand, delights in the white stuff and can't wait to get out and play in it.  She loves to dig tunnels and bat the snow with her paws. She chased Maddie at high-speed around and around the yard.  See how high he is lifting his back legs to get over that snow!  Finally he went and hid under the front step, away from Polly-the-wildcat.
Polly then did a bit of scoop surfing, her favourite winter sport.
 When Polly visited the vet last August, we met a neighbour from our street there with his dog.  He greeted Polly with "I see you riding in the snow shovel in the winter!"  We wondered if he was watching her antics this morning;  she put on quite a show!


  1. You go Polly-girl! Maybe we could get snow scoop surfing into the next Winter Olympic Games!!

  2. Snow kitties instead of snow bunnies. I love it!

  3. Polly is very funny! I couldn't imagine a cat liking wet cold snow, cats usually like their comfort.......Polly, you are definitely unique!

  4. Cassie is pleased to see the human has been duped once again into providing for the comfort (and snow scooping enjoyment) of the cat overlord. All hail the Cat! All hail Polly! (Maddie, too, of course.)
