Summer's Ready For Winter, But I'm Not

It was minus 2 degrees outside this morning when I walked the kids to the bus stop. T complained when I made him wear a sweatshirt under his jacket because he couldn't move his arms!

I told you all about the latest addition to our family, Summer, a few months ago. He continues to be a loving a sweet kitty. You just have to look at him and he starts purring.

Here he is when he first found us. His coat is thin and dull brownish black in color. He was also really bony under his fur.

And here he is today with his magnificent shiny fluffy black winter coat.

I seriously didn't know he was going to be so furry once he became healthy and the weather changed. Don't you want to scratch that belly? It's really soft.

He also gained a lot of weight since being neutered. That's not all fur around his waist.(Ignore the carelessly tossed Ugg boot(Hanukka gift from Grandma),my daughter has left in the middle of the kitchen floor. Really taking care of them, she is.)

Summer spends a lot of time here, on my bed and has his own favorite corner on the couch.

I wish I had a fur coat like his. BURRRRRRRR!!!
I added a "follow me on Twitter" button to my side-bar if any of you Tweet. I can't figure out how to put a Facebook link there yet.
Stay warm.

I love an affectionate cat. Especially one that will jump up and fall asleep on you when you are on the couch!

Summer's ready for Winter... aren't you clever?!

Summer is magnificent! Isn't it amazing how a cat (or dog) can transform with just a little TLC? Whitey's transformation since I rescued him in May is very similar. And he's a lovebug and a purring machine, too!

That's such a difference - he's so glossy like an ad for hair conditioner.

Cats make me sneeze and wheeze though.
