Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Fireplaces and Rugs

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
Dang, let me tell you, we’ve had quite the cold snap here in the South. We went from having temperatures in the 70s to temperatures in the low 20s. That is a whole big bunch of Brrrrr Humbug. I’m sure thankful to have a home where the warm is plentiful.

I’ve been spending lots of time on my Throne, which happens to be right in front of the fireplace. Oh my, the toasty warm sure feels good. If the buns get a little too warm, I just roll it over and toast the other side for a while. Just the other day the fireplace wasn’t on and I was a bit chilly. I sat there looking at the fireplace for a few minutes and sure enough, the Dad took the hint and started it up for me. Thanks Dad!

I’ve got to tell you about my creative Sister Seal. We have tile floors in the big bathroom and those things can be a bit cool to the touch, if you know what I mean. Well, in the big bathroom there is a separate shower place. Outside of the shower place is a rug for the peeps to step on when they get out. My Sister Seal will move that rug right on top of the furnace register and make herself a nice heated bed. She’s one smart one!

We’re thankful for warm and the creativity to heat your own feet! What are you thankful for today? Tell me in the comments, and better yet, join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

She’s pretty clever! Here, we’re already running very warm at our sad new 10-15 degrees higher than normal. We fear this will mean h*ll–we mean summer–will be 500 months long this year.

You are lucky to have a fireplace. That Sister Seal is very smart!

That Sister Seal is sharp, all right. Even my Tungsten thought just of lying next to the hot-air vent, not putting a rug on top of it. As for the others, there are two heated cat-beds that are rarely empty. But it’s first come first serve there. I need to get some more!

It’s been downright cold here, too. Do you think we could come join you by your fireplace, Brian? Or perhaps Seal has some space on her rug? We sure are glad you kitties have such a wonderful and warm home!

Timmy Tomcat
Guest

We are having that nasty cold too. I like to lay on the cat perch that is right above the heater. Ahhh. If they use the other perches and the cat walk 4 of us can stay toasty while the others cuddle on the couch. Take that cold!
Thanks fur a great Thankful Thursday

Tile floors… TELL me about ’em. MOUSES!

We have tile floors in the sunroom and they’re cooler than cool. Colder than cold. Chillier than chilly, too. Of course, we’ve kinda been cut off from the sunroom the last couple of months but still, I walked over those tiles the other day and they were FREEZIN’, for sure.

What’s that, Rushy? Oh. Okay. I’ll tell ’em. Rushton says he thinks the pot of freesias will recover. MOUSES!

Pat Hatt
Guest

Having warm spots in front of the fire sure work. Wow, Seal is a very smart girl indeed.

You kitties are very good at inventing your own heat spots. We could sure use more heat here. It’s so cold we’re late coming by to enter the blog hop. But we’re here and you had already been by when we got online You’re mind readers. πŸ™‚

Brian , we smiled when you said your Dad took the “hint” to get the fireplace going. You have him well trained!

Seal is a clever kitty, that is certain! πŸ™‚

Stay warm . . it’s raining and chilly out here today πŸ™

Seal is smart! We wonder if any of the others will try to steal her spot.

Brrrrr Humbug sounds about right! That Sister Seal sounds like she know what to do, though.

Raven
Guest

Wow, that’s a huge temperature swing. We have a fireplace but it never gets used. Sister Seal is a very smart kitty making herself a warm and cozy bed.

Cathy Keisha
Guest

Whoa! Not much to be thankful for here except your friendship and, I guess, that we didn’t get 2 feet of snow.

Kitties Blue
Guest

This cold snap has been ridiculous. Mom won’t let us go on the catio when it is below freezing, and we don’t like that. Sister Seal really is a bright for one so young. It’s supposed to start warming up, and we sure hope it doesn’t get cold again. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Stay warm, dear pals.
