Cookie Has a Snow Cone

Cookie has a snow cone!

Cookie enjoys a bit of snow from the top of the round pot at the foot of our deck steps. A snow cone!

The temperature finally rose above freezing so Cookie and I went outside in the sun. In her condition, she can’t regulate her body temperature so well and I’m always a little concerned for her little paws, and the rest of her as well.

She’s still a little shaky but she can make it up and down steps, slowly. I’m impressed that her tongue is nice and pink! But we had a nice visit to the yard and it really energized her.

  • She is doing good! How amazing that she is licking the snow! Excellent photo.

    • I’m so glad she allows me to take her photo now! She used to wait until I was focused on her then turn away, little brat.

  • Susan Stoltz

    I love the pink tongue and I’ve never seen a cat eat snow. Cookie is so sweet!

    • Susan, did you ever see a cat curl up in pots and pans and mixing bowls? Cookie has always seen the world a little differently.

  • Yayyyyyyy Cookie!

  • Laurie and the "Girls"

    Snow and sun are some of the best medicines around! Glad to hear that she is feeling better! Love love love the pink tongue!

    • I learned years ago that a little time in the sunny back yard was treatment number one, all the others just support it!

  • Linda Chapman

    Looks for sure she is enjoying the “snow cone.” And that pink tongue! How sweet! Am sure she enjoyed every minute outside with you!

    • Linda, she couldn’t believe we were going outside again. It’s been too cold the past few days and she was mad!

    • It’s taken some behind-the-scenes work from both of us, but she’s finally turning the corner! Still love that pink tongue!
