Longhair cats were first seen in Europe

in the early 16th century. 

The first known longhair, the Angora,

was named after the region of the Turkish capital Ankara,

from where it originates.

 

Purrl is called a medium haired cat and is still looking for a way to Mexico.

 

I am standing at the same spot for both of these shots.  The top one is right at my back entrance. Purrl is a couple of meters from the deck.  In the second shot the pond is straight ahead and the driveway to the road goes to the left. My car is parked on my right.  Is the amount of snow not frightful? 

 

I have not let the cats outdoors unattended as their safe world under the deck is blocked by the snow. House cats are definite prey for eagles, osprey and huge hawks as their position can be seen so well from the air.  Foxes and coyotes are also looking for food as females are carrying soon to be born babies.

 

Ruby has taken off a few times when a car arrives.  The scaredy cat panics and disappears until the vehicle (and scary person) leaves.

 

I love the cartoon at the bottom!

PEI is a dangerous place for a cat to be in winter! Happily we have not had any snow in Bath this year
Now that is what I call snow
It looks so surreal to me Mary! You seem to live on another planet...
