It may be spring according to the calendar, but it actually snowed in Boston yesterday.
Jacoby seems to really enjoy going out in snow.
As I posted last week, he’s been out in the snow several times. He’s always been very interested in the cold white stuff.
Maybe it’s his Canadian heritage, but he’s a regular snow cat.
Most of the time, anyway. Hey, snow is slippery!
I think I see why he dislikes his boots, though.
Look at that grabby hand action! I don’t like wearing shoes or gloves, either, so I can see his point.
The snow was deep, and at one point Jake was exploring my boot prints.
I guess he figured if I’d been there, it must be safe to walk there. After all, he’s smaller and lighter than I am, so if I didn’t sink in, he wouldn’t either.
I understand he doesn’t like wearing his boots, but I do worry about his feet getting cold without them. I know cats’ paws are better insulated against cold and heat than our feet are, but they still can’t handle snow as well as their wild, snow-loving cousins like lynxes and snow leopards.
After all, domestic cats are descended from desert cats, not snow cats.
Luckily, Jake loves wearing his coats and sweaters.
We’re going to need to work on the wearing boots thing, I think.
