(Or… It’s Time to Hibernate, Stupid)
It’s gotten cold here. (Okay, to be fair, anything below 60 degrees is cold to Jacques and me.) But seriously… highs in the 30s in November where we are is unheard of. It’s bad enough that it’s pitch black by 6:00 p.m., but to have it this cold this soon… well, Jacques is having none of it.
I think this picture pretty much sums it up.
He refused to move on this particular morning. He was curled up on his favorite fluffy blanket and had been siphoning heat from me. The promise of treats, b-o-n-e-s-es, going outside… nothing would get him to move. I eventually played the “I’m bigger and have opposable thumbs” card, much to his chagrin. He grumbled and mumbled his discontent for the rest of the morning. I can’t say I disagreed with him.
So much for fall weather. Stay warm and enjoy snuggling up with your loved ones!!
And now, here’s my PSA: Remember to bring your four-legged family members inside when the temperatures drop. Just because they have fur doesn’t mean the cold won’t affect them. Help those who can’t help themselves – that’s true for all living creatures.
