Meow from the summit of Mount Washington!
At 5PM on Monday, March, 26th, the summit was in the fog, and I still didn’t care, because you all should be focused on the pretty kitty that resides inside the walls of the Observatory.
That’s right, folks. It’s me, Marty the summit cat, interrupting the long string of comments by the humans to let you in on my perspective, from a foot or two off the ground.
I was one happy kitty last week when it got very warm outside. I ordered the observers to let me outside, and they obliged, which allowed me to air out my fluff.
I’m not used to running around outside in March, but I didn’t mind at all, as I was getting very antsy being so cooped up inside for the winter. I pulled a couple of all-nighters, heading outside at dinner time, and not showing back up again until 2 am, when the night observer opens the door to let me prance inside. What do I do for all of those hours of the night outside? It’s true, I enjoy running around on the rocks and keeping these four chiseled legs in tip-top shape. All the observers believe that I’ve met a friend and I spend my nights seducing this special someone. I have no comments on whether or not that’s true.
Unfortunately for me, winds are blowing over 100 mph and temperatures are down below zero again, so my delicate senses cannot handle venturing outdoors anymore. So now I’m snuggled back up on my cozy pillow in the weather room, listening to the wind howl outside, laughing at those poor observers who have to go outside and brave that weather.
Those observers are expendable, but this kitty is way too important to risk outside time in these conditions!
By the way, if you want to see more of me in action, check out one of last month’s Obscasts if you haven’t already (for MWO members only). You’ll get to see all of my many sides!
Marty, Summit Cat
