Out in the Cold

December 26th, 2009


It’s me…  Cookie….

The Show Cat?

The gorgeous Show Cat?

The beautiful fluff ball?

The puffy pile of kitty cat wonderment?

Is any of this ringing a bell?



Are you people seriously going to just let me freeze out here?


It’s almost as if you are the show cats and I am the human!


  • Awwww! Let the poor kitty in! I wanna skritch those ears! And that “mane”. Such a gorgeous feline.

  • Two of my fluff balls live outside too.

  • Southern Gal:

    My kitties aren’t nearly as purty as yours. They are smart, though, and have learned to climb the bannister at the back door (one on each side) and peep in while crying in the most pitiful manner. It’s really sad. Too many allergies to let them in. It does make my boy go outside and hold them for long periods of time.

  • Fran:

    What beautiful blue eyes! How can you resist? Aww, come on, let her in!

  • joann in tx:

    poor kitty!
    i hope she didn’t have to stay
    out in the cold too long?

  • I have a kitty who literally lives in my window as well… staring in pitifully all the time…

    Go find some mice, Cat.

  • With all that hair, no way she’s cold. lol Pampered kitty. She does look pitiful though…did you let her in?

  • LOL! Why doesn’t she take refuge in those pots of flowers you have outside?

  • Beautiful cat.

  • Martha in Kansas:

    Oh, Cookie! Come look in my window. I’ll let you in!

  • Kris:

    Oh, I’d sure let her in. Don’t think she’d feel like walking all the way to Ft. Riley, though.

  • What a great looking cat!

  • Is Cookie a Norwegian Forest cat? She’s beautiful. Probably not too cold, just wants to be with “her people.”

    My little Tuxedo, Pascal, missed me a lot while we were down at my MIL for five days…poor kittie.

    She’s a beauty, though. And knows it. ;^D

    Merry merry.

  • “The puffy pile of kitty cat wonderment?”–okay, that takes the cake! :)

  • Lovely kitty. That sad look always does the trick for me. Let me in!!!!

  • Oh she really is gorgeous!

  • Charlene:

    Oh please let the poor kitty in now! How many days has it been that she has been pleading with all of us to let her in? In other words, I miss you! Happy New Year! Hope all is well.

  • M.R.:

    Can we trade cats? Mine probably won’t bite you very often. (I stupidly took her in when her owners were going to take her to the pound.) I will let your showcat live inside and will brush her hair on commnad.

  • Mary:

    Dear Rechelle,
    I’ve been a “lurker” forever. I really enjoy reading your takes on life and I miss it when you don’t post. Rechelle, I live in Toronto, Ontario and find it amazing that I don’t find any Canadian posts as enticing as I find yours. You’re one in a million Rechelle! I love your openness…is that a word? and the fact that you are so open about your life. I lived your trip to Europe…could have killed my husband…and almost did. Kids were along for the ride so I’m sure they didn’t notice. In any event, love your blog. Keep on writing Rechelle…you’re very talented!
    Luv ya,

  • Trudy:

    Is she a Maine Coon? We have one and right now, he looks so fluffy with the freezing cold weather…I wonder if they puff. He doesn’t sleep with us usually, but I found him in bed with us three times last night….it be cold here in Michigan.

    She’s probably happy as a clam….

  • Can tell that you are suffering from ‘Blog Burn-Out’. We miss you!

  • p.j.:

    Hey, Rechelle,
    Just wanted to wish you and your family a very happy and healthy new year. And to say that I hope everything is o.k. with you and your cats and your crew.
    Take good care of you. p.j.

  • jamoody:

    Hope all is well with you and yours and you are surviving the cold snap…we have snow headed to Central Mo…I’m assuming it is coming from your direction!

    Anyway, just wanted to say Hi and let you know that I have missed you!

  • joann in tx:

    Please tell us all is well with you and your family. We are worried about you. I even ask your sister and still no reply from either of you. We miss you and hope you are okay.

  • Susie:

    Joining the ranks of missing you – hope all is well. :)

  • Lois in IL:

    I, like everyone else, am worried that perhaps something awful has happened. Please let us know you and yours are okay.

  • Lori Anne:

    Is that cat still out in the cold? Buried in a snow drift the size of Mt. Oread?
