And yesterday . . . . . extremely frigid temperatures, into the minus 30's, have meant no Epik Journey's for Abby and Keeper the last few weekends. It's about minus 27 Celcius in this picture. Winter is normally their favourite time of year but the snow has gotten too deep for them to do anything more than hop a few feet from the house while the temperature means they're outside for about 15 minutes at a time before they start holding a paw out of the snow.

Rick, I am absolutely in love with your furry fella's. Keeper and Abby as usual are stunning. So is your photography. Your house is beautiful! And I want those cats!! They need to come teach my little ones that just 'cause there is a tree up in the living room does not mean it is there for their climbing enjoyment!! :frustrated:
Thanks for sharing and have a very Merry Christmas!

Gorgeous pics, as usual, Rick! And all the furkids are looking great! Keeper is looking great!

I love that last outdoor shot! Abby's sitting there so alert and proud in the snow!

So, um, how many beautiful Christmas trees do you have in your house? :o I'm lusting after them--Brier tries to eat anything and everything so I decided to forgo the tree this year. :fingerscr for next year... :D

Thank you.

Abby and Keeper do send out Christmas cards. Below were the two Christmas card covers for 2008.
