Mimi apparently got over her little bout of fear brought on by the weather the other day, but she clearly let me know she does not like snow and that I should get about removing it.
We went outside to feed the birds and fill the birdbaths this morning, and after a quick sniff at a few things on the deck Mimi headed for the steps and her happy run out into the back yard. Just as quickly she was headed back for the door. I ignored this, knowing she’d get accustomed to the cold and snow.
I proceeded as planned, down to the yard, sweeping off the steps as I went, heading for another bird bath. Mimi followed me down the steps but would not step off. Then she followed me, stepping in my footprints.
Her paws adjusted to the snow quickly and she followed her own pattern of going off to explore, then returning to me to walk under my skirt then rub against my legs, stopping to stand with one front paw lifted. I can see Mimi and I have a long winter ahead of us.
