I don't know what that woman thinks, but honestly, why would a cat like snow? Do I look like a Snow Leopard? Or a Siberian Tiger? Yes, of course I have some Norwegian Forest Cat in me somewhere, but that is mostly my tail! Mind you, I did go out on my own, so I have to give her that.
That snow however is awful. It's cold, it sticks to my feet and tummy and fur, it get's in my eyes and sits on my tail and even worse: this snow was wet snow. It would turn to water immediately, making me wet. Did I ever tell you that cats don't like water?? And don't you start telling me about Ocelots and Fish Cats and Sumatran Tigers and such. They are freaks of nature!
Mara decided though that five minutes out in that wet snow was enough for her and I completely agreed! Sometimes it's better to be inside and watch what happens outside!
PS: update 1: The headache hadn't lessened and I am now on my second sick leave day. Knowing the pattern of headaches from the past, I should be well enough again by tomorrow.

Update 2: I managed to get off that roundabout last Sunday without any damages. A colleague today was not so lucky. Six of his passengers were hurt when the main road he drove on (so, not where I had my trouble) turned out to be very slippery and he hit a concrete wall. The driver himself was trapped for a while before they managed to get him out. None of them were badly hurt though, but still: don't play with the weather!
