01/28/2015 – Mysteries Abound!

We have two mysteries on our hands today. The first, may be a glitch or maybe not. Our good friends, da Tabbies o Trout Towne alerted us to our weather to come. Sure, the rest of the country is buried in storms and snow. No reason why here in the Pacific Northwest, we shouldn’t be too.

Yesterday, according to our Weather by the Hour app, today is going to be a bit of a chilly one for us. We haven’t stepped out to check just yet, and frankly, we’re not sure we want to! Thanks for the head’s up, Tabbies o’TT. Looks like we’re gonna have to break out the hot toddies and pull on another layer of flannel!

The second mystery is best described by our own Olivia, who usually loves a mystery. This one, however, has her flummoxed.

Sorry if I look annoyed. I’m tracking a mystery that’s been bothering me since… well, it’s been a long time. Before yesterday even! Let me explain and then maybe you can figure it out.

Okay, here’s the scenario: This ball, this orange plastic ball is possessed, or something! It follows me sometimes. That’s creepy, even more creepy than when Patrol Sergeant Zuzu follows me around looking to chew me out for some infraction. This is no innocent orange ball, I’m here to tell you!

So here I am, sitting in my favorite spot in the entryway, where I can see everything there is to see, when suddenly…

… I move about a foot forward and this orange orb is suddenly over my shoulder. Since this has happened before, I cleverly ignore it initially…

… and that’s when it moves! I swear, it rolled toward me. It was very slow to do so but it did! How can you tell it moved?

You can tell by looking at the sunlight shining through the holes. See? It’s a mystery!

  1. That is a scary weather report. Mighty cold. And Olivia that is a strange ball for sure . Hope you figures that mystery out. Have a great day,

  2. Um, wow…that’s pretty freakin’ cold! But mysterious at the same time…just like that orange ball, Olivia. I’m thinking that ball just likes you, and is trying to follow you around. Why not pounce on it, and teach it a lesson?!

  3. Uhh…… yep, that would be some kinda cold, fur sure. Olivia, keep a very careful eye on that thing. You just never know what lies in wait for an innocent feline.

  4. That orange ball is quite the mystery- you should chase it.

  5. That sounds like wicked cold!!! However, we were more concerned about the “broken clouds”. Who broke them? We bet it was a doggy who did that. Oh, and the mysterious orange ball……….Zuzu hasn’t been taking spy classes and can now change herself into an orange ball has she? You know those ginger cats are sneaky! 🙂

  6. Ummmmm is it remote controlled Olivia? We loved those silhouette photos of you and that ‘following’ ball.

  7. hello frum hawaii wear itz a balmee 83 with a SSW wind oh 5…yea, we wish 🙂 oh, N for de record…ewe guys setted a record with de minuzz 172…. now thatz sum inn sane ice fishin !! brrrrrrrrr…..

  8. Wow, that plastic ball IS creepy! Stay inside and stay warm – I bet Wednesday’s temperature is some sort of record!

  9. OMD your real life version of The Prisoner LOL. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. Wow, something is moving alright.. Hope you figure it out!

  11. That weather report is crazy … gotta be a record, don’t you think?

    As for that orange ball, you’re right, Olivia. Creeeeeeeppppppy!

  12. I suggest that you give that spooky orange ball a kick out into the cold weather the first chance you get. That will teach it a lesson.

  13. MOL!! That’s one frigid cold front!!!!

  14. Strange things are happening where you live. Maybe that spooky orange ball saw that crazy weather forecast and wants to get closer to you so it can keep warm.

  15. MOL, dat would be pretty cold!

  16. Beware of strange balls with holes and cold fronts!!

  17. We think you should whap that ball really hard for following you, Olivia.

  18. Maybe Zuzu has installed a hidden camera in that orange ball and swats it toward you whenever you aren’t looking. As to that temperature, we think it might take more than hot toddies to survive that. We think each of you should ask for your very own heating pad.

  19. It’s looks like you are so close to solving that mystery!

  20. That’s a very strange orange ball. 🙂

  21. That orange ball is strange……
