I recently saw a story somewhere online about a farmer in Siberia who has a colony of cats on his property who have evolved to thrive in such cold weather as they have in that part of the world. (See above for a representative photo. Wouldn’t you think their little paws get a bit cold?)
I can’t seem to track down the original story right now, but trust me, these kitties are TOUGH.
My main question is whether perhaps (fat) Cowboy really has life goals of being a Siberian cat. The only downfall is that Cowboy has short fine fur, so perhaps she’s bulking herself up to make up for that loss. 🙂
Those cats are gorgeous! I bet they hair fur between their toes. I imagine the shedding when summer comes is a nightmare! Poor Cowboy 🙂
Hey. I hadn’t thought about the hair between their toes. I was just thinking cold toes! And the shedding….!! (No worries about Cowboy. She hasn’t been told about these cats. 😉 )
