Folks, it is COLD out here in The Woods.
But I have a thick fur coat.
My People get all frantic and stuff whenever I come in out of the rain, soaking wet.
But I am not actually soaked to the skin, because of the aforementioned fur coat.
People #1 or People #2 dries me off with a towel. People #1 tends to be more rough, because he likes to play with me that way. Almost every time he messes with me, THIS is what happens:
I pretend not to like it. But I do, deep down.
We live in a very "rustic" building attached to a 100-year-old barn. It does not have what my People call 'Central Heat & Air'. Far from it, folks.
They use kerosene heaters this winter. They promise me wood stove heat next winter when they finally hook it up. I miss me some wood stove heat. It is the BEST.
But the kerosene heater in the Music Room does a good job. This is the warmest spot in the whole house. Of course you are aware that us cats know all these spots!
The kitchen is colder than the Music Room, because we do not spend as much time there in the winter. Before People #1 lights the kerosene heater in the kitchen, this is what I look like in the cold:
I am going to move to another chair...
Meanwhile, I will do my regal Canadian pose. I originally come from Vancouver, you know. Hamming it up makes me feel warmer.
Cat trick: Place your paws together, wrap tail around body and hunch down a little for increased warmth.
Well, at least I am in a very tastefully decorated space!
I hope all my cat friends are keeping warm this winter.
