Cats Put Paws in Snow For First Time

Cats Fascinated By Snow

Paul and I do our best to provide environmental enrichment for our cats Annie, Eddie and Mercy.  The sunroom in our home, designed by Paul, was built to enable Gracey to see comfortably out of the lower row of windows. The larger windows have screens we used to be able to open but now with Annie, we need to place a bar in the window to prevent the windows from opening too wide. We open just enough to let the fresh air in but not wide enough for Annie to get overly excited and bust through. The cats have toys and beds and their beloved Cat Power Tower in the sun room so it’s no wonder why it is their favorite room in the house.

This winter we had quite a bit of snow and both Annie and Eddie seemed fascinated by the white blanket surrounding their sunroom.  Mercy was happy just to curl up on the sofa and take a long winter’s nap.

Annie and Eddie Put Their Paws in the Snow.

When the last significant snow for this winter season fell earlier this month, we let Annie and Eddie experience snow under their paws. Though they both couldn’t seem to contain their excitement at first, their enthusiasm was rather short lived as you will see in this short video.

My favorite part is Eddie giving us the stink eye in the end. He was quick to run inside and warm himself on the chair by the fireplace. I don’t think we will get Eddie back out in the snow anytime soon…or… ever.

You might remember that Gracey wasn’t so fond of the snow either from her video The Tiniest Tiger’s Snow Adventure. If you are new to The Tiniest Tiger community here is the video that won us the CatVenture Category in the 2013 The Friskies.

The Tiniest Tiger’s Snow Adventure

Annie and Eddie, just like Gracey, prefer to experience the great outdoors from the safety of their sunroom.   Good riddance winter. We are ready for Spring.

    I loved the video, I’ve had the same results with my 2 boys. Where did you get the walking vest?

    Oh geez, that video was adorable!!! Annie looked like she would’ve been fine watching the snowflakes, as long as her feet weren’t in the snow, but Eddie, yeah, he was definitely not liking it 🙂 Thank you so much sharing <3

    • Eddie was a little upset with us for a while after he came inside too. I don’t think he will try going out in the snow again. Annie might. Thanks so much for watching our video.

  5. MOL! I probably would like the snow about as much as Annie and Eddie. Although it may be a while before I get to see any! I’ll have to travel somewhere away from here to find it.
