Munich Monday

M√ľnchen (Munich) has had wonderful weather this winter. We've hardly had a winter at all! We had one week in January where we had a lot of snow and the temperatures were below freezing, but the rest of the winter has been very spring-like.


Here I am enjoying some of the wonderful sun we've been having. My humans have also really enjoyed this winter, since they are training for a marathon (that means they are going to run really far for no reason - silly humans!) and it is much nicer running when it's warm outside and when there's no snow. They've actually been able to do a lot of runs wearing shorts and short-sleeved tops. In the winter! But none of us are complaining about the warmth. No, we are very happy with it.


My sleeping bag is cozy and warm, but it's even nicer when it's in the sun! That way I can enjoy the softness of the sleeping bag combined with the warmth of the sun. The sun feels really good against my bare skin.

So all in all, we've been very happy with the mild winter in Munich this year. Only one week of snow, and most of the winter the temperature has been above freezing, if not downright warm! The grass in our yard is green, green, green, the trees are starting to bud and the spring flowers are starting to bloom!

I miss sunspots. Our windows all look east and there's a great big vishus deer forest, hill in the way and we don't get much sun!

You have great weather! Can I come visit?

That's great, Dragonheart! You look so cozy and so beautiful napping in the sun.

Kitikata-san said...

DH, I like napping in the sunshine too, it is nice and warm. My humans runs marathons and bicycle long miles too, which is silly cuz they could spend that time petting or feeding me.

So, I saw on Fat Eric's website that you might get a brother or sister just like you. How can that be? You are already the cutest hairless kitty I have ever seen, can there be two cutest hairless kitties?

William said...

Running for no reason? Are you sure? I bet there's nip involved somehow!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Looks like a furry lovely day there!

Rascal said...

What a great kitty bed! You look excellently comfy, Dragonheart.

Lux said...

Sounds like your winter's been warmer than ours this year! You look so cozy in your bag that I'm beginning to feel sleepy myself.
