posts about miukumauku.
somewhen after christmas, it suddenly started snowing in switzerland. so when we returned from lappland, we could enjoy quite a lot of snow!
we weren’t the only ones enjoying it: the cats also like it. well, at least the young ones. some even jump into deep snow to catch a snowball! (sorry, no photos of that…)
too bad most of the snow has already melted again…
today, it was pretty sunny and quite warm outside, and we decided to play with our cats (and our neighbor’s cats):
a month ago, there was still snow outside:
our cats and our neighbour’s cats clearly enjoyed the snow:
part of it was also playing in the snow:
more than one year ago, miukumauku, my cat, moved in with us. so when i was sitting outside and saw her playing in the sun, i had to take some pictures. she grew quite a bit, and stopped playing with most of her toys, in favour of having a real-life outside, playing with anything that moves and is not too big. and she’s still extremely cute.
here are some pics from today:
a couple of weeks ago, the meadow behind our house was freshly mowed, and our cats were playing. it was beautiful weather, and i grabbed my camera to watch them playing a bit:
it’s still less than a year since we first saw some little kitten, and some months less before they joined us at our place – one of them, miukumauku, at our home, and the other two at our neighbours’. last weekend, on the day we returned from tyrol, it was the not-anymore-kitten’s first birthday!
(it was not so simple to get all three of them into one picture and make them look at the camera. in fact, they never did that when i was ready to take a picture. so i ended up looking for shots where they were not half busy eating or presenting their butts, but somehow looking nice.)
we don’t think they actually noticed that this day was somewhat special for them, but then, who cares if there’s food and good weather:
so we watched them play for some time, trying to catch each other, crawling through the grass, looking for food, etc.
finally, here’s a nice portrait shot of miukumauku:
