I have about 10 inches of snow on the ground at my home right now. I considered trying to make a snow corgi, but it has also been below zero. That is too cold for my tastes, and I fear that the snow would not be wet enough. It also is too cold for the corgis. They normally love snow, but this past week they have stayed outside only as long as needed and haven’t ventured much further than just outside the back door.
So, since it was just too darn cold to make my own snow pet, I went looking for some photos of some. Sure enough, I found a good selection of animals made from snow and pets enjoying their snowmen friends.

Icy Stare 2 of 15
There seems to be a problem with this snowman. Or perhaps we should say "former snowman?" It appears to have melted under the scrutiny of this cat's intensive gaze!

How cute is this? A little snow kitten greets you from the bottom of the entryway steps. Something like this is a great snowpet idea. It is simple and easy to make and looks very decorative.

What’s This? 6 of 15
Such a tiny snowman for such a large feline! I think this photo is simply adorable. The little baby snowman is cute, and the cat is clearly very curious about it.

A Purrfect Perch 8 of 15
Who needs a hat or scarf, when you can have a cat instead? This feline looks right at home on top of her snowman. I wonder how hard it was for her to get up there?

Super Cat 10 of 15
Now this is an impressive snowpet! You need a lot of snow to put together a cat this big. The owner did a nice job of carving out details and making it look realistic.

Cat is the Hat 11 of 15
What is up with cats perching on snowmen? This perch doesn't look so cozy with all the sticks poking out. I imagine the view is pretty good though.

Cute Kitty 12 of 15
Here is another example of a smaller snowpet. By adding a red ribbon and making whimsical eyes, the snow cat looks simply adorable. I love the use of sticks as whiskers!

Snow Family 13 of 15
Here in an interesting mix of snow art. The dog is quite well crafted, and I suspect the snow was perfect for making snowmen, give the ability to form it so well. Wet snow is the best for this.

Colorful Cat 14 of 15
With this snow cat, the owners colored things up with the eyes and nose. You can use colored lids for this or food coloring will also work.

Working Hard 15 of 15
It takes a lot of work to get a snowman properly shaped and patted firm. The wetter the snow the better. This little guy must have had some help though.
