The kitten ferociously tackled the ball of yarn, but it only seemed like a small act of play to the small children which ran excitedly around the easy chair. The chair was occupied by a mother, who was reading quietly to the youngest child. On the table sits a bowl of unfinished oatmeal, steaming silently. The cat, now bored of the yarn, jumps onto the table, and takes a few licks of oatmeal, but decides it is not good enough for her and she moves on. This is a look through a window into a cozy house surrounded by snow.
