These are pictures taken last year around this same time.  There was a bit of a thaw (unlike this year), and Dylan, the brave, being the explorer that he is, embarked on a solo Snow Trek to the end of the drive.  Just think of him as a combination Hans Solo from Star Wars and Captain Kirk from Star Trek, although his ears much more resemble those of Mr. Spock!

The end of the driveway is like the end of the uniFURse in winter time.  So, Dylan went where no cat went before.  The others preferred to stay closer to home.

Dylan surveys the winter wasteland that is our front yard.

He scent-marks the corner of the house so he can find his way back, and gives it a kiss for good luck.

Off he goes, into the frozen tundra that is our driveway.

After many seconds, he reaches his destination.  Should he go further into uncharted territory?

Or return home to the safety of his home and his loved ones?

Home calls the loudest on this purrticular day, i.e., he hears Dante howl.

And here's Dante to greet him at the end of his long and arduous journey.

"Concats, bro, on an awesum adventure!", says Dante.
"Fanks, but whoever said "Don't wait fur Spring" is just downrite crazy!", says Dylan.

Dylan - don't get frost bite on your pretty toes. Have a stern word with your brofur Dante and warn him about cold pawsies.

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...'s cold out there! Go inside where it is toasty warm!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Get inside before you freeze off your toes!

Sparkle said...

It doesn't seem as interesting to explore all the white stuff as it is when everything is bushy and green, and who knows what is hiding under all the leaves?

Angel, Kirby and Max said...

It is time to go in and get warm!

The Monkeys said...

It's so cold now that we can't imagine you two out there in this weather! We are glad this is last year!

What an adventure! We shivered right along with you, Dylan! The driveway is a long long way from the house when your pads are cold.

Cat said...

Dylan you are very brave!!! It's nice to see you have the support of your brother when you head out on your treks :-)

Cindy said...

Oh my! That is some adventure out into the cold. You are very brave.

Lisa + current cat said...
