Cleo's big adventure

Our cat, Cleo is pretty much a spoiled thing. She lives inside and never steps foot outside. Occasionally she tries to get out the door when we have it open.
With all the snow we got last week, Bob was having to plow a path out to his workshop. We thought that since the snow was so deep, it wouldn't hurt to let Cleo in the walkway, since there really wasn't anyplace for her to go to.
Here are a few pictures of her outside in the snow:


She didn't really know what to make of it. I thought she would come right back in, but she just sat there, looked around and sniffed at the snow. After a few minutes, we took her back in. That's enough adventuring for one day!

Awww- she's so cute- I bet she had fun. Oscar got sick of his leash today too and took off out the door when I opened it. He wanted to chase the leaves that were being blown around. He's never done that before. I took off too- to retrieve him!

I love how she keeps looking back like she's not really sure of all this white stuff!

Mari,

Cute photos. It looks like Cleo is a little puzzled with all that cold, white stuff. Of course an indoor cat wouldn't really know what to make of it. Glad she was able to get out for a few minutes.

Blessings,
Mary

awfully cute photos. especially the last one where it looks like she is trying to peep over the tall wall of white next to her!

She sure does look a little unsure of what is going on. She is a funny one.

That's so cute! Our kitty constantly tried to get outside, but she's afraid of the snow, hehe. They are strange little creatures.

Renee said...

Too cute! Sounds like you all had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Years too!

Wouldn't you love to know what she is thinking? How fun! My dog would be the same way if we could ever get that much snow.

Happy Holidays!

I love it, she's so cute! We like to throw ours into the nearest snowdrift & see what he does :)

Cherdecor said...

I bet she cannot believe how high that snow is. It is as tall as she is! Think about seeing snow as tall as we are. It would be a little daunting to say the least!

ha ha too cute! Hope she got use to it :)

Pat said...

Boy, you still have a lot of snow! We don't have any left here on my side of the state. Of course you know that now that I've said that we should get tons in the near future! Get in kitty, it's cold out there!

Nancy said...

To funny!! Cats are curious creatures aren't they??

Terri said...

Funny little cat - I guess though if she's never been in snow, what's she to think?

Sandy Toes said...

Look at all that snow..oh my!!! Where are you in Michigan? I grew up there!

That's a lot of snow! Hey, Mari, come back to my post. Since the video didn't work, I tried embedding a slide show instead, and I think that is working.

Rebekah said...

Wow- you guys got quite a bit of snow. We are still waiting for anything measurable.

I had a dog that used to burrow tunnels in the snow. Cleo doesnt look that interested in digging

BethAnne said...

That is too funny! I wish we had some snow like that....Happy New Year!

Kristie said...

Cute!
We have had some pretty warm weather here the last few weeks so I'm shocked at just how much snow you guys are getting. I wouldn't know what to do with a little bit of snow much less that much.

You know, Peka keeps trying to get in the garage. I don't really know where he thinks he's going. The farm cat that has his winter fat would have him for dinner! That's if he didn't freeze to death first.

And he loves the basement. He meows at us all the time to open the door so he can go down there. It's unfinished, but he likes it. Go figure.

One of my kitties does the same thing, when the snow is deep enough, we let him out and he usually runs back in :)....run Cleo run! LOL
