First snow for Hero and Lisa

During the night from December 2 to the morning of December 3, it dumped about 3 or so inches of fluffy snow on us. Unfortunately, our balcony only got what little the wind blew onto the edge, due to the other balconies above and a roof. Hero and Lisa were amazed nonetheless!

Before I opened the balcony door to let them out, I had my phone ready to film their reaction:

December 3, 2020 Hero and Lisa experience snow for the first time!

Of course I have a few adorable photos too!

Hero and Lisa “What is this?!!”

And this is what it actually looked like outside

Can you believe that it’s now a year and more than 1 month that sweet Hero and Lisa came into our lives? They are thriving and happy!

Samantha is doing really well! These days, she loves to cuddle up in the rocking chair next to the heater with her beloved catnip cushion or she hangs out by our desks, watching what we’re up to on the Internet.

Sonic has a new basket, which we actually put on our bed. He loves it! As does Lisa. She regularly cuddles up with Sonic in the new basket. Hero will then often cuddle up to the basket on the outside.

The black blob are Lisa and Sonic. But I don’t know where one starts or the other ends🀣 I took this pic in the dark with flash, so I woke poor Hero up…

Sweet boy’s age is noticeable. Not by his great blood results and still healthy organs, but he’s sleeping a lot and slower. I just want him to be nice and warm and comfy, as well as close to us at all times. The only worry is his digestion, which is slow. So he’s getting extra fibre and drops which increase the digestive systems activity a bit. It works great! Though he does have days with problems, especially if he got into Samantha’s kibble for a bit. Regarding getting to her food, he can be real fast!

I’ll stop for now, since it’s almost midnight and I am getting real sleepy!

I’ll write another update tomorrow night, about a bunch of things, and the changes that are happening and about how I’m increasingly concerned about the economy and our freedoms.

I hope you and your furbabies are all well! Love to you all πŸ’– and purrs 😽 😽 😽 😽 πŸ’•

  1. Hey welcome back. Looks like your kitties weren’t to happy with the snow. At least they found a nice warm place to snuggle into for a nice long Winter’s nap.
    Have a very merry and nd Safe Christmas/holiday.

    1. Hey! Thank you!!! The kitties might have looked like they weren’t happy with it, but they kept wanting to go back outside to explore the snow some more lol. They were mostly just astounded by the feel and look of the snow. We had some more snow yesterday, but it started raining in between. So yesterday’s snow ended up being a massive amount of sludge. They all enjoyed watching the snowflakes dance around in front of the window though 😸😸😸😸

      Thankfully we have some great heating and it’s wonderfully warm in our apartment. I have created countless cozy warm kitty places for them and there are about 10 warm fluffy baskets πŸ˜„ They really do have nice long winter naps now! It’s so dark anyway recently with all the thick overcast and fog.

      How are you doing? Is it snowing yet where you are? I really need to stop by your blog! Sorry for my long breaks between posts.

      I will post and be here before the Holidays and throughout the holidays. I wish you a blessed and happy Christmas too! From all of us! πŸŽ„ Stay safe!


  2. So glad to see and hear from you all and know the kitties and you and Ralph seem to be faring well !
    Hoping everyone stays safe and warm !

    1. Aww thank you! I’ll try my best to be here and keep updating before and through the Holidays, as well as afterwards. My energy levels just need to stay as they are right now.

      How are you doing? Do you have snow where you are?

      The weather here has been really dark for a long time, as it continues to be very cloudy and foggy. We had some snow again yesterday, but with rain in between. So the streets and sidewalks were covered by inches of yucky wet sludge lol. Nothing on our balcony though. But the kitties, Ralph and I are nice and snuggly warm in our apartment.

      You stay warm and safe too! πŸŽ„πŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ˜½


  3. I had an orange tabby many years ago (long before the internet and cell phones) who had a funny response to her first snow. I would let her out for a few hours each day and the first snow she saw she was cautious at first, then she started walking through it to get to the yard. She would take a step then shake her leg, repeat…..She got used to the snow and would leap through the snow like a rabbit. One day she had climbed a tree and when she started back down she lost her footing on some ice and landed head first in a pile of snow. Didn’t even faze her. Shook all over and came inside.

    1. What lovely memories of your ginger tabby! So adorable to imagine❀️ Cats are amazing like that. They just keep going. Thankfully she landed relatively safely and soft in a big pile of snow. That would have been such an adorable video!

      I would have loved to be able to film and take photos of my other cats, who lived and passed on before Smartphones too.
      But I’m thankful for the memories and the paw print every kitty leaves in my heart.

      Thank you so much for stopping by! 😽😽😽😽❀️

    1. Thank you so much Mia! Maybe we’ll get even more snow around the holidays, with a couple of inches on our balcony. That would really be adorable and fun for Hero and Lisa! Of course, I’ll share all my future photos and videos again πŸ˜‰

      Stay cozy and warm and take good care as well! 😽😽😽😽❀️

    1. πŸ˜„ Hopefully, we’ll get some more of it in the next weeks. Hero and Lisa would have even more fun if we would get a couple of inches on our balcony! Those two would be so amazed!

      I’ll never forget when it dumped about 1.6 foot or 50 cm of snow on us about 10 years ago. Back then I lived with roommates and we had a patio. When I let Murli out onto the patio to explore all that snow, she didn’t even know how to react, since the snow was so high. So she ended up just pawing at it and trying to eat it… With less snow, she would just walk on it, while shaking out her paws every couple of steps. It was adorable.

      Thank you so much for stopping by! πŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸŽ„

    1. Aww thank you! I absolutely love how they reacted to the snow, even though it was just a tiny little bit. Maybe we’ll be lucky to get some more snow and end up with a few inches on our balcony too! Hero and Lisa would be amazed! Of course, I will post as soon as that happens and share it all with you.

      I love the kitties so much. It’s also so wonderful to see Hero and Lisa thriving and growing! I’m so grateful to have my little family with Ralph!

      How are you doing? Hopefully you things are alright despite the restrictions and lockdowns. Stay warm! Love from us all 😽😽😽😽❀️

    1. Thank you so much! How are you? I hope things are ok where you are?

      We got some more snow yesterday, but with rain in between. It started out with big fluffy snowflakes that covered everything very quickly. Then the snowflakes changed to rain and the ground was covered with a growing mess of a few inches of sludge. Nothing for the kitties…

      I would love to see them react to a good few inches of fluffy snow on our balcony! Maybe we’ll get lucky. I’ll post a video and photos of the cuteness of course!

      Love from Ralph, the kitties and me πŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸŽ„

    1. Yay! Happy you enjoyed watching Hero and Lisa in the snow! I can only imagine how strange it must be, to feel snow for the first time. And it totally makes your paws / feet icy in no time! You would need cute little warm snow boots for your paw BellaDharma, if you want to check out snow again!

      Thank you so so much for your POTP and purrayerss! Sonic is doing better again! We’ve been to the Vet on Friday evening, Sonic and I. Little boy was constipated after sneaking some kibbles from Samantha… Sonic gets high fibre kibbles. Any other kibbles will cause constipation. Wet food would be great, but he does not want it at all.

      I will post about Sonic’s Vet visit in my next post. (Which I’m hopefully posting by tomorrow).

      Sonic now receives medicine that helps his intestinal muscles work better and it also increases his appetite. In addition, he also gets a medicine that protects his stomach lining and a supplement that helps him metabolise and digest fats.

      With this recent combination of meds and his special food, his appetite is absolutely great! Sonic now accepts baby-kitten formula! I feed it to him, so he would get his strength and weight back up.

      We had been trying these meds before, but not all of them at once. Though it seems to be exactly what was needed! Thank you for your prayers and love!

      Right, I don’t really know where the time went either! It’s unbelievable!

      Oh, our snail mail card is on it’s way to you! We hope it will get to you safely. Can’t wait for you to get it! Big hugs and purrs and love from us all! Thinking of you both a lot!

    Hello Natascha~ Sherri-Ellen here. I just wanted to say this year sure has gone fast altho’ we all seemed to be standing still. We here in Canada are in certain stages of lockdown. I still act like stage 1….only going out when needed.
    I can say wearing a mask out has helped me stay germ-free from regular Flu , so it IS worth it for myself with my Immune System issues!
    I hope you & Ralph & Kitties 4 will have a nice Christmas day together…
    Take good care of each other & be safe.
    (((hugs))) & ❀ Sherri-Ellen
