spring fever

So there I was, minding my own business, spying on the neighbours from my office window when...

Hmmm...  That doesn't sound all that good.

So there I was, minding my own business while gazing out my office window in the direction of the neighbours' house...

Ummm...  Not quite right yet.

So there I was...

Awww...  MOUSES!

So anyway, I was looking out my office window and what did I see?  Snow.  That's right.  SNOW. On the 26th of April.  Could you believe it?  MOUSES!

Of course, I immediately did what any self-respecting cat would do.  I ran to the side window to check if it snowing out there, too.  And do you know something?  It was.  It was even snowing at the back and front doors.  It was snowing everywhere!

BREAKING NEWS...  It was snowing at my house, yesterday.  MOUSES!

Now truth be told, it didn't snow a whole lot.  I mean, I had to really squint to see the snow.  I had to really squint, really hard.  Do you know how hard it is to squint really hard?  Take my word for it, it's hard.

And when it comes right down to it, there wasn't actually any snow lying on the ground.  I don't know if melted before it hit the ground or as it hit the ground or what but on the ground, there was nothing.

But the fact remains, it was snowing.

Clearly, there's something wrong with ol' Miss Spring.  Ol' Miss Spring must have a fever or something.  She's running hot and cold.  One day it's sunny and nice and the next?  It's snowing. MOUSES!

If you ask me, I think Ol' Miss Spring has spring fever, for sure.

I mean, it's April.  This is the time of year when flowers are supposed to be blooming and birds are supposed to be singing and grass is supposed to be growing and if there's any kind of precipitation going on, it's supposed to be rain.  Ol' Miss Spring has apparently never heard of spring showers. MOUSES!

And by the way, spring showers do not refer to peeps taking showers in the spring although we do all hope that all peeps do take a shower or two - or a whole lot more - throughout the season.  Spring showers are supposed to be when in April, it rains.  Rain.  Not snow.  Rain.  Spring showers are supposed to bring May flowers.  MOUSES!

Even if there wasn't a whole lot of snow, there was still snow.  Dare I say it again?  Of course I do.  MOUSES!

And just think, had I not been being nosey, spying on the neighbours' house...

Hmmm...  Scratch that.

Had I not been doing my civic duty, gazing out my office window and making sure everything was right in the neighbourhood, I wouldn't have noticed that snow in the first place and I wouldn't have realized that Ol' Miss Spring has spring fever.

But what does a season take for a fever?  Anyone know?  Is there a pill for that or something? Maybe a tonic of some sort?  Or a shot?

And exactly how does one verify that fever, in the first place?  I'm only asking because last time I had an appointment at the doctor's, the doctor took my temperature and...   well... Well we won't get into that.  Suffice it to say, taking kitty's temperatures isn't all that fun for kitties, if you know what I mean.

What's that, Peepers?  It's not all that fun for the doctor, either?

Well then why the mouses does she do it in the first place?

MOUSES!

  12. Mom bean says snow is a four letter word that starts with S and ends with NOOOOOO We sure hope it leaves and doesn't come back to your house (or the neighbours) any time soon. We bet they are furry happy that you're keeping an eye on things for them.

    Paws crossed that spring gets over her fever and shows up at your place and ours too!

  14. Well Seville I think Miss Spring got lost on her way to visit many of us this year. Yep - I think she got snowed in somewhere. It's the strangest Spring EVER. Snow should be GONE. Somebody is confused and I don't mean US!

    Love, Sammy

  15. We had a chilly spell, but luckily no snow. You sure are right, Seville - there's something plain wrong about seeing that white stuff in April. I sure hope it warms up for you soon, Seville. Crossing our paws for lots of warm and cozy sun puddles!

  17. You saw snow coming down on April 26th? Have you been eating cheese again Seville? That just doesn't sound right.

  18. OMC we woke up to a covering of the white too yesterday, the weather is bonkers right now. We think Spring needs to take a va-cay and let summer roll in asap as to be honest we're sick of being cold... brrrrrr....
