Pebbles The Cat Enjoys The Snow

Pebbles the Cat has enjoyed all of the freaky snow we've had this winter.

It's easy to understand why: Pebbles is a Maine Coon, which means she's from Maine, where it snows all the time. She has a tremendous amount of hair to keep her warm, which, in Oklahoma, is typically useless (because it's so hot here). This winter, though, her furritude has served her well.

Interesting fact: Maine Coon cats are created when a racoon mates with a kitty cat.

(not really, but people used to believe that story.)

As David said when he first saw her as a kitten: "I love her." Beautiful ruff which I why I sometimes call her after the Dutch Master, Rembrandt Van Rijn.
God rest her little brother, Simon, of Pittsburgh PA. We will miss your deaf meow, Simey!

Pebbie is beautiful. Thank you for your kitty condolences to our beloved Simon. He is sorely missed.
