If Mother Nature ran a restaurant, I'm thinking that customers of all species might be asking to hear about the Spring Specials...
1 "Yes waiter...I'd like to order up a large serving of warmer weather..."
2 Luna, "That sounds delicious Minnow - I'll have what she's having!"
3 "Max...what are you gonna order?"
4 "I've had it with this cold- I know i'm an indoor cat but geez.... It'd be nice to get a whiff of the great outdoors! So order me up some spring too please... and feel free to garnish it with catnip."
5 "I know right? Throw us a bone here Mother Nature...
I'm just famished..."
6 "I've had enough of this white stuff on all the trees. Seems the birds and squirrels don't exactly love it either- which makes my view oh so boring..."
7 Max, "I catch the occasional glimpse of bird or two- but that's hardly enough to hold over a lion like me."
8 "I've been tapping my paws and pacing non-stop for months now... when can we expect some warm rays and butterflies?"
9 "Tell me about it Max... I'm all for napping but even I have my limits!."
10 Ruby, "I feel you fur kids. Things are the same here in Colorado! I love the snow and all but I can only vroom around in it so much... (I do love my cozy new bed though...)"
11 "Yeah Ruby! Agreed- I mean we're not sled dogs right?"
12 "And I'm running out of cute sweaters to keep me warm. I can only recycle them so many times before it's just down right tacky!"
13 ""We HAVE managed to stay entertained on snow days though... thank goodness for that!"
14 "Good friends like Sammi have joined us for play dates..."
15 "Daisy came over to hang out and play games..."
16 "We played dress up and I wore my ears like Daisy wears hers! What do you think?"
17 "We even played Sniff and Guess, our favorite butt-sniffing game..."
18 "And we did art in the snow..."
19 "And played favorites like, 'I Spy'...
I spied a sea urchin in the snow..."
20 "Even the garden lights are trying to stay entertained... making little party hats out of snow and such...Will this crazy cold ever end?"
Hang in there everyone- and stay warm.
Come to think of it, curling up with a furry friend is one way to stay warm...
Perhaps it's time to adopt a new member into your family? Just a thought...
