Walk-About Time

MARLEY:  Yay!  TBT cleared more open space in our "snow box".  It gets to the place where I can at least see over the edge.  I looked ta the left..
 I looked ta the right...
An it was still all just snow as far as I could see!   But I decided I had been trapped "IN" long enough.  Time ta get up and around.  I hopped up and (Thank Bast) didnt sink down.
I stood there fer a minnit checkin out the surface...
And proceeded ta carefully walk out ta the edge of the deck!  
Ya may notice I am walking slightly strange.
I was shakin every paw as I walked, ta get the stoopid snow off!
When suddenly, I realized TBT was there laffin at me as I did that!   WELL!  I'd like ta see HIM walk around in this stuff bare-pawed...
But it DID get me out ta the edge of the deck where there was no snow.  So I walked around a bit.
BTW, in case ya all are wonderin where Ayla is, she has decided not ta chill her princessy toes.  She is loungin on the waterbed and waitin fer the path ta be completed and the deck surface dry.  Well, OK, Mancats have ta be a bit tougher than princesses.

Good on ya Marley. You were brave and fearless - even though you did waddle like a duck!

Marley do you realize you were walking on a sea of water?? Snow is water, but we think you knew that! Years ago our Toki-Angel ran out the back door (presumably to snag himself some grass, haha!), and he jumped off the cleared back porch into a huge soft snowdrift...and he sank in there with all 4 paws...and was stuck! Meowmy had to do a rescue mission...and no; there was not any grass, MOL!

You sure were curious about what was going on in your yard! Did you see lots of birdies??

Better I should walk like a duck than a platypus, OY! Brave is easy, fearless is easy. Snow in the paws is hard...

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Yeah, we saw lots of birdies. And they KNEW we couldnt get near them!!! ARGHHH!

Brrr! I think I'd rather stay inside with warm, dry toes too.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Man, Marley, I don't know if it's brave or silly to be out in all that snow! I say wait til spring! MOL

Punapippuri said...

You are a mighty mancat! You would be at home in the wilds of Finland (N). Bravo Marley. And yeah, we know the 'funny walk' - snow is really messy on the toehawks and paw pads. Let those who mock come and join in, and then we shall also laugh.

And the lack of girlcats - well, it joust confirms our brilliance, eh ?!

Marg said...

Our kitties do the same thing in the snow, shake the paw everytime it touches the snow. Wow that is one big bunch of snow. Amazing.

Katie Isabella said...

Boy Marley, you are n intrepid explorer! I admire you!!!

The Whiskeratti said...

Wow, we are very impressed. Our delicate paws have never touched the cold stuff. You are a most fearless mancat explorer.

Brian said...

I agree Marley, you are a brave one to venture out in that stuff!

Mariodacat said...

That is a bunch of snow to get all at one time. Poor TBT having to shovel it. You are very brave to get your paws wet and cold. M took me outside one winter for a walk in the snow, and I couldn't get back in the house fast enough. No more snow for me.

Pretinha said...

Marley você me fez rir, menino bobo! Acho que você precisa de sapatos para neve. hihihi
Uau vocês tiveram muita neve!
Adorei a 8° foto, ficou muito bonita.

Marley you are just too cute for words!

Colehaus Cats said...

Wow, you are one brave ManCat! No way would we do that!

Gidget said...

ROFMMAO!!!!

The Swiss Cats said...

MOL ! Sorry, I have to laugh : Pixie does the same if her precious toesies touch the snow, shaking every paw at every step ! Purrs, Zorro

Flynn said...

You are fearless Marley! It was rude of TBT to laugh at the way you were walking. I bet he didn't go out with bare toesies!

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

You are too cute shaking off your toesies- I don't blame you. I am glad you got to do some exploring.

Shaggy and Scout said...

You're brave marley! We sick our noses out the door in winter and that's about it!

The Island Cats said...

Marley, TBT needs to get you some boots!

Just Ducky said...

You show them how tuff you are. Mancat's rule.

Ellen in Oregon said...

You are one tough explorer Marley. Let those fluffy princesses lay on their warm waterbed. Nothing can stop you from going out into the great white wonderland of snow. Very smart of you to check the sturdiness of that deep snow before checking out the yard. We were glad you were light enough so you wouldn't sink since the snow is taller than you are. How dare TBT laff at you just because you shake you tootsies. TBT has no idea how it feels to get icy cold snow in between your toes. It is like getting brain-freeze in your feets. Make sure to tell TBT that cats hate being laffed at. We would estimate that your snow should be all melted no later than June 2018. Guess the girls will be doing a lot of snoozing until then.

Allie: That's EXACTLY how I walk on snow, too! It's as CAT thing, humans just don't understand!
