Photo Hunters: Hot

Hot

Enjoying the fire
(Click photo to view a larger image)

Last February, my humans and I spent a week in a chalet in Château d'Oex, Switzerland. The chalet had a fireplace, which was absolutely wonderful! Here, my mom and I are enjoying the HOT flames of the warm fire. I'm the gray blob on her lap in the fleece blanket. ;) (If you click the photo to make it larger, you can more easily see me in her lap - the arrow points to me.) Sadly, we don't have a fireplace at home. I really enjoyed the warmth it gave off!

That's definitely a good place to be. We have a woodburner and spend all the cold (and not so cold) days in front of it.It was -5 last night, so we aren't moving from it. The mousies can wait!

Daisy said...

When we lived in Virginia where it got cold, we had a fireplace and I loved it! It never gets cold enough where I live now to have a fireplace.

Awww Dragonheart...you love to cuddle and sleep on your Mummy's lap. That's cute, so is the fire place :)

He he... I knew she would be there in the picture, although it was impossible (for my eyes) before enlarging. Cool.

Siani said...

What a nice, cosy pic. We have a gas fire, which my cats love. Have a lovely, warm and purry weekend!

Gattina said...

Poor DH without fireplace and cats like it so much, that much that we had to replace the wood by electricity which really looks like fire, but the smell is missing, (sigh) ! Even a screen didn't help. Some cats are crazy. Rosie becomes the perfect little housewife, she likes to put her toys in special places.

Yes, fireplaces are wonderful and since we downsized to apartment living, we as well no longer have one. One day we will change that... it gets too cold here. Very nice picture!

What a cozy picture, Dragonheart, of you and your mom in front of the fireplace. We don't have one, but mom would like to get one that plugs in, heh, we wouldn't care as long as it's warm.

Hi Dragonheart! I need a fireplace this weekend, the cold is brutal. If I can (after I get a new camera), I'm going to get a propane fireplace, 2 of them, so that I don't use that much oil. And for when the power goes out. You'd love that! Warm safe fires all the time!

Parker said...

Oh how comfy and wonderful! I bet you were in heaven all cozy like that!

Chen said...

It looks very cosy, Dragonheart. Mom has a recliner that can heat up (actually, it's dad's) and I love sitting in it when she has the heat on.

You look sooooo sweet sitting there with your mommie.
Some day... when you come back to this side of the world again, you will have a house with a fireplace :-)

we hope you are having a happy week-end

Hi Dragonheart --

Looks like you were so intent on being snuggly that you weren't too camera-friendly, for a change! ;b

That looks like such a lovely fire, too. Thanks for stopping by to see what is hot on Pollywog Creek.

SabineM said...

Chateau D'Oex is where I learned how to ski, my grandpa had a chalet there.
There is also a great HOT AIR balloon Festival, I think in February, every year!
Nice comfy photo!

Tyler said...

My mommy bought her condo because it had a fireplace. I know what you mean about enjoying the warmth. It actually gets TOO hot for me. But it does feel good on a cold night. I can't wait to share it with my kitten brother and sister when we start the first fire.
