Solstice Eve Garden

The temperature outside was in the 50s today so I decided to do one last 2013 garden visit. Most of the garden was still under a blanket of snow but I managed to dig out some late season carrots. 

There were a few greens poking through the snow too so I brought home a mustard green leaf for Mao Mao. She likes to munch on something leafy but she's never tried this flavorful green. I'm not sure she'll like it but I couldn't pass up homegrown food for the kitty. 

Speaking of kitties, all the usual suspects were accounted for in the garden. The furry guy finally looks comfortable. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you loyal MaoMaoKitty readers!

A Christmas Tradition

So many to choose from... But none of these are big enough. 
That's just about the right size. And look at all that character! Can't get that in the local tree lot. 
The happy couple and their tree. 
Beautiful. Just beautiful.

Let it Snow... Some More!

It's been a snowy couple weeks here in Jersey City. By that I mean it's snowed twice in the last week, it hasn't all melted yet (there are even patches that haven't turned gray), and we're supposed to get a few more inches tonight. This is by far the most snow I've seen before Christmas in this area since I moved here seven years ago. It's great!  And we should have known this was coming because we saw this guy in the fall (he was at least 2.5" long and reallllllly fuzzy):
He was well prepared for a snowy winter so I'm expecting lots more white stuff in the coming months.

A Calico Cat in Fall Foliage

It's a little late (it's snowing outside right now), but I couldn't resist sharing these wonderful photos of Mao Mao romping in the fall foliage from a few years back.  Who doesn't love seeing a cat surrounded by autumn beauty?
