This picture of Jesse is from last January, but she looks just the same now.  Jesse is a lucky kitty.  At first, the Mom just wanted to adopt Dazey, but then decided that Dazey would be lonely as an only kitty and decided to take her litter sister Jesse as well. Dazey and Jesse are six years old now and are as different from each other as they can be.  Jesse is shy and doesn't like to play with the other kitties at all.  In fact, she still hisses at Connor, even after four and a half years.  Jesse would much rather play by herself or with a human, though not with the Little Monkey, or two-legged kitten, as yet.  If you went to visit the home of the Cyclone Cats, you would probably think that there was only one cat in residence, as Connor and Jesse both hide from new people.  Jesse enjoys playing with her catnip pillow, lying on the windowsill, especially if the window is open, and going outside on her harness and leash.  Actually, she would much rather go outside without the harness and leash, but Mom has decreed otherwise.  Jesse enjoys the outside so much that she even has to check out the snow.  She has decided that going out in the snow is no fun, though.

                                 Jesse wanted to check out the snow,
                                 But the door was as far as she wanted to go.
                                        The cold tweaked her nose;
                                        The frost nipped her toes.
                                Jesse had no desire to romp in the snow.

Hi, I live with Pyewacket and Trixie and Tigger the FBI Cat. I'm the grown up!

I just read the last three posts to catch up. It is so interesting to hear about your snow and see the pictures. It is very, very hot here where we are.

And do you know, I learn so much about the cats on the Cat Blogosphere by reading your blog. :)

I do not think I would like to romp in the snow, either.

Karen Jo, that's a great limerick - it's fun reading about cats and snow when we're in the middle of our summer. We think Jesse is pretty smart for not rushing outside in that snow - cold stuff on cats is NOT fun.

That limerick is perfect. We love your stories.

Great limerick. Emmitt totally agrees. He does not like the snow very much.

I have never seen snow, but it doesn't sound very nice if it is cold. Perhaps it is better to stay in doors like Jesse.
