A Guardian journalist and mom of three-year-old Larry and six-month old Kedi set out to gain a deeper understanding of what makes her cats happy. She consulted with various experts, and wrote an article titled The inner lives of cats: what our feline friends really think about hugs, happiness and humans. “Over the course of the week it takes me to research and write this article, I become obsessed – even more than before – with the happiness and wellbeing of my charges,” she wrote. I encourage you to visit the Guardian to read the entire, beautifully written article.

We were supposed to get some snow flurries earlier this week. They never materialized, but the forecast made me think back to when Ruby experienced her first snow in 2011. I hope you enjoy watching my sweet girl.
She got to experience snow one last time, a week before she passed away:
Have a great weekend!
