Feline Friday: The Staying Warm Version

It has been Damned Cold here in upstate NY, as it has been in much of the rest of the country. So cold, in fact, that when it went up to 24 today, we all got stupid excited. You could actually hear people humming "We're having a heat wave." Okay, maybe that was just me.

For the moment, we're looking at close to a week of almost normal temps (around 29-30 degrees F), which is a distinct relief after weeks of bitter cold.

Thankfully, we have lots of ways of staying warm at my house. Witness a few of these:
 Method one: cuddle up with someone cute
 Method two: hover around the pellet stove
 Method three: wait for me to put a blanket over my legs and then take up most of said legs (only Mystic can take up THIS much room)
 Method four: fight with the other cats over the cat toys (it is amazing how much heat this generates)
Method five: the cat classic...sit in the sun

I hope you managed to stay warm this week, with or without cat toys.

[And an aside to Dad: I don't know why you keep reading Feline Fridays either. It must be one of those unanswerable questions of the universe.]


  1. wise cats, clever cats, and hilariously funny cats. :D
    our cat used to sleep on top of the radiator, right on top of the really, really, really hot thing (you couldn't put a finger on it as it got so hot). And only once steam started rising from the kitty he would finally move away from it. lol

    1. I have to keep moving Samhain because she drapes herself over the hottest part of the pellet stove. (Hence the not-so-pretty bricks on the front bit.)

    2. oh dear :D
      well, you couldn't want to have a sizzling cat, for sure. :)

    3. I like barbeque..but not when it is my cat.

  2. Hey, I have a quick question I wanted to ask you about your blog, do you think you could send me an email when you get this? Thanks! Tiffany

  3. Love the cat pics. Our Plum tends to lie in front of the gas fireplace until he is too hot to touch.

  4. I think the temperature increase calls for a pitcher of sangria.

    Our now departed cat, Holly, used to go into the hot garage in the summer and sit on the hood of a hot car. Go figure.

    Love your kitties. Thanks for the lovely pics.

    1. This week sure as hell calls for a pitcher of something :-)
