Snow White Wednesday

Well folks the worst of the storm blew past us during the night but it left enough of the white stuff on the ground, to close schools and businesses. I have a snow day today and I'm spending it with my boys safe and warm inside!  Adding to the cat's cozy comfort is a new kitty blankie which arrived on Monday from Peggy's Place.  Peggy was so wonderfully patient with me while I dithered for ages over what colours the blanket should be.  Finally I decided on a light blue with fluffy white.  Oh my goodness it is so gorgeous and soft, soft, soft as a cloud!!!  Thoughtful Peggy also included two mice and two balls with the blanket; a toy for each boy :-)

Archie was the first to try it out

Then Ben took a turn
Little Jimmy joined in too
 Archie and Ben together
And the three amigos

The best part about Peggy's blankies is that the proceeds are given to the Cat Blogosphere to help kitites in need!  The money from this beautiful blankie was donated toward Chrystal's Cathouse!

We got our Peggy's blankie at an auction and we love it too. We are so worried about the snow in American and the Cyclone in Australia - all those poor animals and people without shelter.

It's lovely Cat and the colour is just right!
I was thinking of ordering one of Peggy's blankets myself for the critters.Isn't it so sweet how cats know immediately when something is for them?
Enjoy your snow day!

The blankie is wonderful! We like ours -- got it in an auction too.

The mom has taken a vacation day, since the University didn't see fit to close (!). But we're not done with all the white stuff...and it all seems to be blowing into our driveway.

That blankie is gorgeous. Great color choices. We love blue things here too.

Brian said...

Oh yea! There is nothing as soft and comfy as a genuine Peggy Blankie, we love ours too!!!

Marg said...

Well that was nice that you got a day off because of all the white stuff. That blanket really is gorgeous. Blue is mom's favorite color too and that is a great shade of blue. We will have to save our green papers to get one of them. They really are pretty. Take care.

That sure is a gorgeous blankie, just what you need to stay warm and snug on a snowy day. We had a few weeks of the white stuff here in Ireland over Christmas and although it looks pretty its not ideal for getting out and about. Stay Safe.

That blanket is purrfect for a cold snowy day like today!!

CCL Wendy said...

Yes, aren't Peggy's blankies just marvelous! They certainly do attract the kitties. Dante just adores his -- he likes it best when it's folded over and he can knead it over and over again before he lies down.

Archie and Ben sure look aPURReciative, too!

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...

Miss Kitty said...

Greetings Catrina,

What a wonderful blanket you have to help keep you arm while it is so cold outside. We cannot believe how much snow has fallen in your area making life really hard on everyone.

LEt's hope that spring is not too far off because then we can enjoy all the flowers coming up from the ground.

Warmest regards,
Miss Kitty and Egmont

I love the pics of the furbabies enjoying the blankie. I'm SO glad Peggy makes them and donates them to these causes, and so glad you bought one which contributed to the building of our 2nd cathouse. THANK YOU.

P.S. The position Jimmy got into on that blankie is too cute.
