I LOVE seeing photos of kitties out in the snow. Alas I could not persuade Daisy to go out for walk even with this on:

Jailbreak! Cat caught with saws, drills and phone in Brazil prison

(CNN) -- Prison guards in Brazil's northeast Alagoas state say they have foiled a jailbreak plot with a surprising accomplice: a black and white cat.
The cat had a cell phone, drills, assorted batteries and two saws taped to its body when it was spotted by guards on December 31 as it was about to enter the prison in Arapiraca, according to a statement released Saturday by Alagoas state prisons.
Prison officials maintain the items attached to the cat were to be used to facilitate a prison break.
The prison's more than 250 inmates were all considered suspects as officials said they did not immediately know who the cat was suppose to be aiding.
The incident is under investigation, and the cat was handed over to animal control, the statement said.

ec! Great article!

The recorded cat distance record for Idaho is 95 miles. In 1995, a fat & pamphered feline escaped from his human's RV in Jackpot Nevada. He made it home to Mountain Home, Idaho in 35 days. That cat-hike would have entailed crossing a lot of desert terrain and the wide Snake River.

During a childhood picnic in Idaho our family cat, Simba, slipped away for some mousing adventure. We left at dark without it, and then checked back the next morning without success.

Simba walked 14 miles across mountainous terrain. He made it home in 5 days and was really glad to see us.

This is Nikki. We found her on Christmas eve 1996 frozen under the hood of my old truck. She was felt almost solid and at first I wasn't sure she was alive. Over the course of a few weeks she had lost her tail, ears, most of her toes and voice box. The cold seemed to have stunted her growth as well. She is still (at 17 years+) spry and feisty.

Last year I had a 3D "portrait" commissioned of Nikki for my wife's birthday. It turned out great.
