A Snowball and a Quilt

My middle cat, Snowball, is difficult to photograph. He is so white that he fades out in most pictures. Yesterday, however, he was sitting on top of my Great Aunt's quilt. The red and green colors bring out his coloring well. Look at his eyes in the second picture; they are bright gold. We are supposed to get some snow tonight and tomorrow, not as much as in the East, just a few inches to brighten the day. I know Snowball would love to walk in it. His paws are protected by thick tuffs of fur between his toes. Maine Coon Cats all have this because they of course were protected from the cold and snow in Maine. He also has beautiful tuffs of fur in his ears to keep his ears warm. Snowball and his brother and sister don't go outside. They are strictly inside cats, but they love to look outside at all of the wonderful adventures that they see, especially at night. Often when I come home from work, one of them is waiting for me at the living room window; it is usually Snowball.


  1. I love coming home to be greeted by my cats!!! They each have a little routine.

    See you tonight!!!

  2. What a beautiful kittie Snowball is!!! I really want to try having a cat, but I don't think it's ever going to happen. Missed you guys on Tuesday night. I am glad I went to Molly's game, but I sure missed the stitching, talking, and laughing. School has been unbearably busy- hope yours is going well! Take care!

  3. I love the "middle"'s almost as if he's your middle child. I'm a "middle" and we try to slip under the radar to stay out of trouble. LOL

    Sorry I missed you guys Tuesday. Hope you all had lots of fun!

  4. Snowball is darling ~ what a sweetie! My little black Sofie girl greets me at the door ~ fur friends are wonderful and thanks for sharing Snowball with us! XO
