Aby-a-Day – January 3: Mushing through the mush

Jacoby hasn’t been out in snow since December 2009, so I let him tromp around in the melting snow on the Greenway.







The nice thing about the snow here is the city doesn’t use a lot of salt or chemical melters on it if it’s not on a walkway. So there was some clean, safe snow for Jake to walk in. That’s an important consideration with cats, who lick their feet more than dogs do.

Jake actually does have a set of little booties, but he won’t keep them on his feet. I have thought about getting him a set of Muttluks boots, because those seem like they might stay on his feet better than the boots, but they seem a bit pricey for something I’m not sure will work. Perhaps if I find some on sale…
