How To Survive Subzero Temps Mario Style

Hi Pals,

Brrrrr!  It's been cold around here lately.  M says our wind chill temps at night have been going down to -35 and daytime temps are sometimes hovering around 0.    M is always playing with the thermostat by turning it up or down.   But, we M says we can't complain because many of my pals live where it's been colder and more snow.    

Why don't humans make a hidey hole like I have.   I stay toasty warm in there and don't appreciate my humans peeking in at me like M just did.   It is toasty warm in here and if the peeps leave the flap closed, it's also dark!    

Take my advice pals, make yourself a hidey hole and sleep the winter away. You will love it.   I only come out for my meals and to cuddle with M in bed at night, or enjoy a lap sitting with D.  Oh, sometimes I make an attempt at playing just to please M.  Well, time to crawl into the hidey hole again.

Mario

What a great idea! I’ve been spending a lot of time in my fleecy warm cat bed. TW hasn’t been going out much cos it’s so cold and they don’t have a car.

And you have a nice quilted blanket for your hidey-hole hut!!! What a great spot.

Ann Staub said...

Yea, I definitely don't think I'd survive those temperatures... MOL

I love your hidey hole, Mario. M had to open the flap to get a picture of how cute you are in it. xo

That does look like a toasty warm spot in which to spend the winter. We have a heated kitchen floor, which we like, and we all vie for space atop the granite slab on the bathroom radiator. Stay snuggly. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Brrrr! That's cold there! We enjoyed warm sunpuddles and open windows today but now we're prepared if the weather gets cold again!

Colder than that? We can't even imagine what that would be like, Mario! But it sounds like you have things under control!

meowmeowmans said...

Mario, we totally agree. It's been mighty cold here, too, and hidey holes are a good way to go!

The Indulged Furries said...

Mario, you have a fantastic hidey hole. Hopefully it will warm up soon and you won't have to bundle yourself up to stay cozy.

This is why we like the big waterybed. Its HEATED! And when we get unner the covers an up against TBT, its FABULOUS!

Marg said...

Wow, that is mighty cold and good for you Mario to find such a nice hidey hole. Looks nice and warm to us. You all have a good Friday.
