Queen Kitty Report: Whisker Freezing Cold

It is cold enough for this kitty to freeze her whiskers. That is what I have decided based on my forays into "near the door" territory.

"Why do you bother doing that?" my little sister asks when I flee that area after a few seconds--whiskers nearly frozen stiff.

Why do I do such a thing? It is sometimes a question that I ask of myself as well. However, I just can't quite keep from doing it. I must check on Daddy. After all, he is but a human... and one with a rather bad track record, too.

"You just about froze your whiskers off, didn't you?" calls my brother from the bedroom. He never offers to leave the comfort of the electric blanket to check on such matters.

Mommy also chimes in.

Do they not recognize the importance of checking on Daddy? Even if it means risking my whiskers, I must make sure that he gets out the door okay. Really, he is my purrsonal bed.

Still, there is a limit to my supervision of him. I shall retreat to a spot farther away from the door and keep an eye on him from there. I shall also keep track of how many more days of are left... and give Mommy a glare whenever she points out that winter weather could easily continue here well past that date.

-Queen Kitty

Poor Queen Kitty, it is nice that you want to take care of daddy like that. Maybe you could watch from a window and stay warmeer

Your kitty is true to her very important duty. Checking on Daddy must be a top priority for some kitty reason.

Oh, Queen Kitty, what a dedicated caretaker you are to be so selflessly devoted to your daddy. He is so fortunate to have you taking care of him. Sincerely, Guiness the Cat.

Poor little kitty! Be sure to keep yourself nice and warm until summer arrives.

Oh those poor frozen whiskers! I know exactly how Queen Kitty feels though. It is very cold outside where I am at. I am staying warm inside all day today and warming up with some good homemade chilli. Keep your eye out for Daddy but try to do it from inside instead of risking going out.

Oh, it is. Me-ow.- Queen Kitty

I couldn't do that, unfortunately. However, I did find a perch farther away from the door so I could still supervise. -Queen Kitty

Well, he provides yogurt and is a good cat bed. Plus, he is good at ear scratches. -Queen Kitty

Guiness, I knew that you would understand. You also do a lot of work supervising your human. -Queen Kitty

LilyDay wrote on February 24, 2015, 12:32 PM

I am working on it. Unfortunately, the humans refuse to buy me my own electric blanket. So, I think that I shall have to save up and buy one for myself. -Queen Kitty

LilyDay wrote on February 24, 2015, 12:34 PM

Oh, I wouldn't set paw outside. I do, however, sometimes hang out near the door when it is open. -Queen Kitty

That is good to hear. Ghost Kitty has a window front and back where she can watch us from and sometimes tell me off if I take too long getting back inside.

Queen Kitty! It's horrible! My Outside is seriously broken and so is my human! She's complaining that it's only a light dusting of snow and that it's supposed to warm up and melt!

Sincerely, Guiness the Panicking Kitty

Oh Queen Kitty, you and Smooch need to swap places. he is getting a bit fed up with avoiding the heat of our New Zealand summer.

LilyDay wrote on February 26, 2015, 1:49 PM

Guiness, my mommy doesn't mind the snow. She mostly just whines when there are negative wind chills. -Queen Kitty

Smooch wouldn't want our wind chills -Queen Kitty

Dear Queen Kitty,

We have southern snow here. The rules are if you say it's going to snow bunches, you'll end up with three snowflakes. If you say it won't snow, you'll get 6 inches. They said it was going to snow bunches, so just to be on the safe side, I said "snow" five times in a comment, and ended up with just a dusting. I was quite proud of myself. I don't know why Debbi is complaining about it.

Sincerely, Guiness the Cat

A good burrowing in a blanket will help. My feline friend used to steal my blanket from me all the time.

LilyDay wrote on March 1, 2015, 12:34 PM

Oh, we have trained Mommy to turn the electric blanket on for us. She won't let us snuggle with the blanket (claiming something about "claws"), but the heat does radiate nicely through the comforter (that is OURS, I say). -Queen Kitty

Guness, six inches is a "dusting" here. Purrsonally, I am horrified by that. However, the humans in this area are strange. They wear shorts when it is in the 50s. -Queen Kitty

Dear Queen Kitty,

I think humans are strange everywhere.

Stay warm Queen Kitty, and remember spring is just around the corner.. emoticon :winking:

LilyDay wrote on March 3, 2015, 1:03 AM

The birds have been saying as much recently. At least, that is the report from Princess Kitty. Purrsonally, I don't have many conversations with the local fowl.

Of course, they could be overstating how close spring is; really, there could easily be snow here at the end of April. -Queen Kitty

Carmelanirel wrote on March 3, 2015, 9:17 AM

Oh I know how snow can stick around longer than we want. I really hope that isn't the case with me, because starting march 14 we are going on field trips and we are going regardless of the weather. (Of course I'm sure something like a severe thunderstorm or tornado might cancel our plans) But no rain or snow will stop these trips and I don't like the cold..;-P
