SnowCats 2016



The Blizzard of 2016 has produced some stunning SnowCats!


Cynthia and the cats are lounging on the patio, drinking margaritas, and napping in the 75 degree sunspots courtesy of California.

Marcy:  Don’t write that!

Cynthia:  Why?

Marcy:  Because everyone will move here if they find out it’s 75 in January.

penelope kitten (squeaking):  too late.

Cynthia:  Penelope Kitten is right. They’re already here. I mean, have you seen how high rents are lately?

Marcy:  No. I don’t pay rent.

Cynthia:  Not to mention you need a million dollars to buy a creaky 100 year old house with one bathroom on a busy crime infested street.

Cynthia throws back the rest of her margarita. 

Cynthia (buzzed):  Maybe… maybe we should move to the country. We could get a mansion! Leave this crappy overpriced apartment that swims in a sea of brown air. Say in Michigan or North Dakota?

Marcy and Penelope Kitten look panicked.

penelope kitten:  but … we’re cali kitties.

Marcy:  Yeah. We like to be warm.

Cynthia (pouring another margarita):  We’ll be fine. We’ll stay inside under a heat lamp and drink our margaritas after we make fabulous SnowCats like these.








Cynthia notices Marcy and Penelope Kitten tiptoeing towards the front door with their suitcases.

Cynthia:  Where are you guys going?

Marcy:  To check out property.

Cynthia:  Where? Utah? Montana? Idaho?

Marcy:  Mexico.

penelope kitten:  it’s 80 and sunny there.

Cynthia:  Awwww… but then we can’t make SnowCats.

Marcy:  Good.

penelope kitten:  we can make sandcats.




Cynthia (excitedly and still somewhat drunk):  We can make SandCats here!

Marcy and Penelope Kitten happily put down their suitcases and rush off to get their bikini bathing suits.

Marcy:  Malibu beach here we come!

They return, dressed in their bikinis, to find Cynthia passed out in a 75 degree sunspot.

penelope kitten (squeaking):  better call an uber.

    Those are amazing snow cats!! You know North Dakota is actually getting expensive now because of the fracking industry. You can always move to Texas!! It’s still pretty cheap here!! We even have earthquakes in Dallas now (thanks to fracking) to make you feel right at home.

      Oh my gosh people really are moving to North Dakota?!!
      Remember to dive under a table in an earthquake. Do not stand in a doorway as previously recommended as you will get squashed.

        Thank you! So far I’ve just sat frozen in disbelief.

    I agree with the kitties, sand cats over snow cats. Although the snowy ones are fun to admire from afar.
    I also agree with Patty. Come to Texas. It’s a lovely 77F today and if oil prices continue to tank, real estate will follow. Warm and cheap!

    The SnowCats are amazing, esp the one with the big fluffy tail, but yeah, in the long term I too vote for the Sandcats. Ya can’t do happily do bikinis and margaraita-drenched sunspots in the snow.

    These are stunning! Especially the one with the big bushy tail, the one with the little cat riding on his shoulder and the enormous snow kitty outside someone’s house – mildly unsettling, very cool! Right now I’m in Norway and I arrived right after the snow had disappeared, so no snow cat action for me! Last winter someone in Norway made an enormous snow bunny though, a whole family cooperated on it and it made the papers.

      Ohhhh – I am am going to have to google the snow bunny!
      Stay warm! It must be super cold in Norway now!

    We haven’t had a lot of snow lately. The mountains could use a refresh!

      I think all the snow is in Northern California this year! At least that is helping with our drought a little down here in Los Angeles.

    I’m with Penelope on making sand cats. I’m about done with snow cats. Also, I had no idea they were a thing?! But they are magical. And considering my early illustrations of cats looked like snowmen with ears and tails, I think I’ll have to make a snow cat next time it snows. Which will hopefully be next winter. When we’re living in Hawaii. With no snow.

    A girl can dream.
