how we’re dealing with the weather

first off,

happy new year! :)

we hope you had fun over the holidays! did you eat as much as we did? we still kinda are, to be honest.. why is food soo good haha! but, gosh, can you believe that we’re already 10 days into january?? wow!

this year brought with itself really cold weather! (ok, maybe our city doesn’t have it as cold as others do, but still, it is pretty cold for us!) especially when there’s wind. regardless, i still really love this weather. i like going outside and seeing the dark sky and my surroundings as if they had a blue filter on them, and feeling like i need to get wrapped up in a big jacket and snuggle. i also like that i can go in bed and feel the perfect temperature under my comforter. not too hot, not too cold. just right. ahh! so cozy! <3

my pets are still getting used to the cold. they are potty trained to go outside, so whenever they get an urge, they go do their business, and come back running as fast as they can! especially angie, who has to wear two sweaters and sleep under big comforters in order to not shiver. poor thing! jimmy doesn’t seem mind to mind it. he still runs around and takes naps in the concrete. at night though he does go into his cage and sleeps in his blankets. max doesn’t get bothered by the cold either. his rolls keep him warm all day long! except when he goes outside. he doesn’t spend as much time exploring lately, but i don’t blame him. that little nose of his probably freezes. plus, he hates wearing sweaters so that’s not a way to help him keep warm, sadly. cake is the smart one! she’s loves taking naps on the floor, but since it has been super cold lately, she goes into my grandfather’s room to nap there since he always has the heater on. and at night she sleeps in a recliner he has there. she has it all figured out..

napoleon and linda jump from corner to corner of their cage; from floor to their blankets. they always do that so i don’t know if they’re actually cold.. they have a lot of thick hair and seem the same to me.

today, however, i carried napo and wrapped him in a big scarf i was wearing. he loved it! he was so comfortable that i felt bad for putting him down.

to make up for it, i put my scarf on his bed so he could cuddle with it, since it was still warm from the both of us.

i think that means he loved my idea..

linda figured out how to open her cage and jump from it to the floor and back in. i don’t know how she figured that one out, but she did. she’s always been rebellious though.. her wild can’t-be-tamed spirit :p so i often find her under my bed in a blanket that fell or a pillow that the piggies have now conquered and proclaimed as both theirs.

how cold is it where you live? what do you and your pets do to keep warm? :)

p.s: did you see we changed our theme? i like it! i hope i don’t miss the other one too much to change it back.. we’ll see!

have a nice day!! :)
