DPP #9: Leap of Faith/Snow Daze

Last night, I was taking random angle shots of the house, and Nessa was stalking me and my camera as if she was the feline Paris Hilton. Apparently she decided to forgo all the beauty shots that we normally do, and went straight to action hero leaps from the top of her perch to the top of the kitchen cabinets. Its not the first time she's done it, she does it a lot actually, but that first time...I thought she was going to break her face. She better watch out though, those holiday pounds she's packing on, one of these days it's going to be a long way to the bottom.....
Local weatherman Schnacky made the announcement that by 6am this morning, we had 16 inches of that glorious white stuff. So at 7am, when Tim and I were both wide awake for the day, I knew that work was probably not going to happen. Dad called to say it took two hours to get out of their drive way and I was to stay home all day. And with a little delay, Tim also learned he was home for the day. Snow day! We did nothing. I worked on some Christmas cards, wrapped some gifts and Tim played some video games and watched tivo. Oh, I made pumpkin bread, laced with brown sugar...and then proceeded to eat half the loaf....literally. Every Wednesday should be a snow day!

It's amazing the sort of jumping that cats can do. I like how you got her in a near-action shot!

Oh my gosh, that first shot is fabulous. I'm amazed by what cats can do. And I'm impressed she hasn't broken her face. My childhood cats survived the most unbelievable circumstances (hanging by garage door for one!). Great photo.

OOOoo, that's so exciting! Thanks :)

I think our cats have cheated death numerous times, that whole nine lives thing has an air of truth...
