Cat Lady No. 291...All About Snowflakes

Cat Lady Heidi and feline friend Snowflake think there is nothing prettier than a snowflake, whether it be the frozen or the furry kind.

About the frozen kind: Did you know that some snowflakes can get as big as almost two inches? According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, "Snowflakes are agglomerates of many snow crystals. Most snowflakes are less than one-half inch across. Under certain conditions, usually requiring near-freezing temperatures, light winds, and unstable, convective atmospheric conditions, much larger and irregular flakes close to two inches across in the longest dimension can form. "

About the furry kind: If you are a cat named Snowflake, chances are you spend an inordinate amount of time keeping your fur snowy white--which can often lead to tongue fatigue and hairballs. Snowflake recommends that your cat lady get a cat grooming mitt or glove. Heidi uses one on Snowflake each evening, always resulting in contented purring, not to mention a well-rested tongue.
