Pixie spent the end of September hunting apples and all kinds of small animals in the garden under my watchful eye.
We went from summer to winter between September and October without any transition: temperatures dropped sharply, and snow appeared at low altitudes before Mother Nature remembered that after summer should come autumn. She therefore readjusted the weather, but the dosage was not yet up to date, as intense rains in recent days have caused significant damage in some areas.
Near us, the Rhone quickly rose by almost 1 meter (3.3 ft): overflows and landslides were to be feared in places, and access to the banks was forbidden. We live in the Rhone Plain, and the risk of flooding in the event of a major flood is real. Fortunately, the rains stopped, and the warning could be lifted.
We needed a good nap to recover from our emotions !
Thank COD for naps! We love that first action shot!

It looks like you two enjoyed your summer! I am so glad you were safe from that flood and can now enjoy some sort of autumn.
That looks like some mighty fine hunting! I’m glad the flood waters never bothered you, that can be quite scary!
Great hunting Pixie!
We are glad the rain stopped and you did not get flooded…but snow!!!! Yuck!
Good to see things are back to normal 😉
We’re so glad the rains subsided. The Rhone looks angry in that photo!
Sorry to hear the weather has been so weird there. We hope you enjoy your naps, Pixie and Zorro. XO
It’s been raining a lot here in England too for the last few days.
We too had an abrupt end to Summer…then WHAM! It was Autumn!
Didn’t I just finish getting my warm weather clothes unpacked…and now I have to put them away again!
Folks around us have had flooding problems all year; the Great Lakes are at high water marks, and just a wee breeze blowing inland will make floodwaters easily.
Good thing we live on high ground, and you too!
I love seeing cats enjoying themselves and you can tell from the photos that they actually did. Looks like a busy day in the fresh air tired the cats out!
You literally have a playground in your yard. 🙂
Nice to see you both. I love that photo of Pixie running in the yard-that looks like an award winning shot. Xo
We went from summer to autumn almost over night. One day it was very warm…the next cold! Mother Nature shouldn’t be so abrupt.
Purrrsonally, I think Mother Nature is very upset with humans for not taking better care of her lands, waters, and animals. She has been trying to warn them for years that they need to change their ways. The sooner we pussycats take over the planet the better.
I’m glad you didn’t have any flooding! Hopefully you have some pleasant Fall weather before it gets really cold.
apple hunting is a funny thing! we noticed that change in the temperatures too… the first cold day is always a weird one… when you stand outside in a t-shirt and shorts LOL
Wow, the weather’s been crazy in your area!
So glad the water receded….flooding is super scary isn’t it. Looks like some fun chasing EVERYTHING that moved in the yard – that’s a good way to spend the days for sure!
Hunting apples? Glad your rain stopped and you are getting nicer weather. Frosty here this morning.
Whoa! Too much excitement. I have to go rest now.
pixie N zorro….YEOWZERZ…..we hope ewe continmew ta stay safe and de waterz ree seed
… sew ewe due knot get any floodz….thatz scaree stuff… 3 feet iz a BUNCH !!!! ♥♥♥
We are envious of your weather, though do fear for you if the floods do come.
Thankfully they stopped! I love the picture of you chasing that apple monster around the garden, that too I would love to do but all ours have gone and rain forces us indoors. Of course, rain means a good chance to catch up on missed naps, just like yours.
Purrs that you all stay well
Great hearing from you all. That is such a wonderful photo of Pixie running. Our Rumpy likes to chase the bread Dad throws for the birds (they never come down when the cats are out) so Dad has to get him some balls. Enjoy your rest friends and keep safe too
Beautiful photos! It’s a bit too early for snow. Hope the weather straightens out for you soon!
I am glad the floods subsided without causing you any damage. Summer was mostly cool and wet here, and autumn is continuing the same way.
We had that sudden fall thing happen here, too, but now its supposed to be sort of summerish for a while again….I, Pipo, and the hooligans will enjoy while we can!
Glad the high waters did not disturb you and your furmily.
Watching cats run around outside is always a joy to us. As long as they can come inside.
Dear Swiss Kitties, I don’t think we are going to see Fall here either. It’s still very hot and humid, but we are getting a lot of rain too. For awhile we thought our pool was going to flood, it rose so high! I will cross my paws that you don’t see any flooding. And that maybe Fall will peek in on you, even if for a short time.
Zorro, why is Pixie doing all the work outside while you watch!?
What a great action shot with that first photo!
Same here! No transition period-went from air con to furnace heat! Love the action photos!
You deserve that rest after so much action, Zorro and Pixie 😀 Loved the pictures ♥ Glad the rain stopped!
Extra Pawkisses 🙂
