Cat predicts Fall

It's starting to get a little chilly here in our neck of the woods. Normally, I'm all about the heat, but I am definitely ready for Fall (not Winter, just Fall.)

The leaves are changing colors -- can you tell? I guess the yellow doesn't really show up against the yellow of the house across the street.


Little Elvis is holding two leaves in this picture, but since he is also wearing yellow, they don't show up so well.

Little Elvis LOVES leaves! Luh, luh, luh, luh loves them! He has to have a leaf every time he swings. And when he fusses in his stroller, I can usually calm him down by giving him a leaf.

Although the leaves have started to change colors, it hasn't felt like Fall -- see Little Elvis' shorts?

Last week, my parents had cooler weather in Mississippi than we did (several hundreds of miles north!)

I thought Fall would never arrive.

But then last night, we witnessed the one true sign of impending cold weather in our house.

Wally snuck under the covers. Our crazy fat cat is 15-17 pounds, covered in fur, and when it's cold outside, he nestles in bed with us. He also snoozes in front of the space heater and hogs the decorative throw on the couch.

Fall is definitely here!

I don't have pictures of our crazy kitty nosing his way under the covers, but here he is after commandeering Little Elvis' dirty clothes hamper.
He always finds the strangest places to sleep.


Just to give Slappy some loving, too. She is sleeping in this picture. It looks uncomfy to me, but she was content. Her little back paws are curled, that's definitely contentment.

next year will be fun to show babygirl the fall. but i'm not rushing it. it's fun to snuggle w/ her now.

How cute that LE loves his leaves. And yes, when it gets cold out, our cats head under the covers too. They do act as nice heating blankets!

I am glad someone is ready for Fall. Not me.

Your kitty is too cute.
