It's Cold Outside

And it snowed all day.
I'm glad I'm not a bird.
I often wonder how they keep their bony little bird feet from freezing. I put out seeds and suet for them in the winter. The cats think the bird feeders are for their entertainment. Fortunately the cats don't like to get their feet cold any better than I do, so they are mostly content to sit inside the house and watch the birds, fantasizing what they would do with the bitty bundles of feathers once they had them in their claws. Sachi gets so excited that she makes funny staccato noises and quivers as she watches them. Kitsu just watches, flexing her claws and licking her lips.
Sure am glad I'm not a bird.
