If I heard my cat say ack ack ack!, I think it would mean - "oh man, if I was out there, I'd of had that bird!" My cat is SOOOOOOOO bored, he is playing with anything. A twist tie, my shower curtain, the strings on a cushion, my back scratcher, even the remote! He nuts I tell ya, nuts!

We are getting slammed here in NY too with our 8th storm since Christmas. Shoveled again today. I am getting really really good at it. Almost got impaled by the icicles though. Holy cow, one was about 6 feet long and I made the mistake of trying to knock it down. Missed me by a hair even though I was under the eave of the house. We are now expecting an "accumulating" ice storm. I guess that means several inches of ice. We actually dragged out the generator because I feel like it's only a matter of time before the power goes.

I really really really need to get away from all this. We ALL really need to get away from this. I don't know about you, but I'm hanging by a thread.
You can come shovel my sidewalk. I dont mind. I can see your cat backing up now as mine do the same thing. I wrote about my cats a little in the next/last reply.
