Roxie D. here! Winter has arrived in South County. On February 9th we got our first big snow storm and it made me feel happy that I was inside, warm and safe in my new special room. Mom is calling it “her office”, but I know she and Dad spent all that time putting it … More Roxie D. aka The Other Cat and “No ZuZus Allowed!”
Last Wednesday was unseasonably warm. Since it’s February in New England, it should be extremely cold. But that day it reached 65 Fahrenheit (18.3 degrees Celsius).

Roxie here. I haven’t posted in quite sometime because The Powers That Be (you know who I’m talking about) has been very stingy with the laptop to the point of total self-absorption. She types and types, using up all the charge so, I’ve yet to see one cat video in weeks! And we could have … More Roxie aka The Other Cat – November Sucks!
