Another chilly morning, after a clear and cold night. It was shortly before 8am when I took these Ice Flower photos from the kitchen window. It was -13°C / 8.6°F at that time. Murli always sleeps under my blanket all night when it’s that cold lol. The heat is on at all times, but I understand she likes it snuggly warm during her sleep.

From the webcam on castlehill, the view over the city shortly before and during sunrise was really beautiful again.

The first picture is the view to the East at 7:30am. If East would be the 15 minute point on a clock, the sun comes up at the 20 minute point. The second picture is the view to the West.

These two pictures were from 8:30am.

Murli and I are both feeling really well! The migraine free phase is still going due to the continuous cold weather. According to the forecsat, the temperatures might go down to -18°C / -0.5°F over night❄❄❄ Depends if it stays clear, or if there will be fog towards the morning. With fog it doesn’t cool out that much.

Murli has continued having her boxpawties all week lol. This one is from yesterday, Caturday. We now have another version, which is the sidebox… She loves running through the “tunnel” that’s created in that way, and she’s had a nap in there this morning as well.

January 16, 2017 Murlis reaction to the missing Christmas tree (video)

Even though I wanted to keep the Christmas tree until the end of the month, but the tree began to really deteriorate even more within the last few days… It got soooo dry, and the branches were sag lower and lower, so low that Murli was only able to crawl around with her belly touching the floor, below the tree, instead of zooming around it, like it was possible before. I also had to constantly pick pine needles out of her fur lol. I found pine needles nested and stuck within her fur all the time, when we were cuddling. Even though it was getting quite dry for some time now, we kept it for as long as it was possible. But it had to go now. Sadly…

I worried Murli would be sad, because she absolutely loved the tree. It was her first big tree, at least quite bigger than the table top trees she knew until this Christmas. My parents always had huge trees, like up to the ceiling… So it wasn’t my first big tree.

In the hope to make it less sad for her, I cut off the branches, her branches, where she would always rub her little head into while the tree was here. I put her branches next to the spot where the tree was. Also, I put together what was available, to make a new place for her where she could hide, play around and hang out. Kind of as replacement, so there wouldn’t just be an empty spot instead of the tree. She loves when I put boxes like that, with the opening facing away and to a wall or similar. I also put toys in and around there, including some valerian root toys and some cat nip stuff.

Anyway, Murli was napping in another room, and she had not seen yet that the tree was gone. So I filmed when she came out and saw all of that for the first time and that her tree was gone!

Thankfully, she wasn’t sad, but instead pretty much excited! She played for the rest of the day there, and I’m sure we will have another play session right now, after I’m done posting this.

Have a lovely Monday afternoon and evening everypawdy!

January 8, 2017 More snow and ice

This mornings ice flowers, while it was -9°C / 15.8°F outside. The lowest temperature this dreary morning was at -11°C / 12.2°F with freezing cold wind. As it continues to be that chilly, I continue to be free from migraines. For as long as it stays like this, I get to have a break. At least from migraines caused by warmer, spring-like weather and Foehn wind.

It started snowing as well:

Murli and I didn’t get that much sleep, since we stayed up pay past 2am, playing, cuddling and me on my iPad, trying to catch up on what I missed online that day😸 Despite that, she was energetic and awake, running zoomies around the home and playing. There was lots of playtime until she suddenly felt tired… and was lost in her thoughts, while trying to decide between playing or napping. She decided to take a nap btw🐱💤💤💤

As the snow continued to fall lightly, Murli curled up on the bed and slept all afternoon. There was a lot more playtime in the evening, with the latest box she got to keep. The one from Caturdays delivery😸📦

Btw, she starts to get more black whiskers on the right side of her face (her right). The ends of her right sides whiskers are also black. They grew out white, but then make a gradient into black. Her left side still has more white ones, but some of them also have black ends. It’s been changing around like this ever since she was a kitten, including the whiskers above her eyes.

In case you didn’t read it when I talked about it, but her MamaCat was a tabby and her PapaCat was completely black. That way, Murli still has a strong tabby gene in her. The fluff fur, under the cover fur has the tabby stripes slightly visible. But they were the most apparent with her fluffy kitten fur when she was little: Take a look here

Anyway, in photos it might look like she has lost whiskers on one side, but they are just hard to see since they’re black 😸

Have a lovely day and night everyone! Hope everyone is well and warm❤️❤️❤️
