Mancat Monday

Mancats are adept at seeking out warmth. In this photo, I am curled up on top of the radiator in the family room. Although it's been fairly warm in Munich, my mom was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and she's always cold. So she normally has the radiator on in the family room (her desk for studying and working on the computer are in the family room). My mom noticed that I was climbing up onto the radiator to lie on top of its warmth, and so she placed the soft blanket that Latte, Kaze and Chase sent to me on top of the radiator. Of course, I prefer to curl up in a nice warm human lap, but when one isn't available, the radiator is a good spot to lie down.

How clever of you to discover how to take advantage of the warmth from the radiator. You look very comfy there. I hope your little brother is ready on the 22nd. He will make a very special Christmas present for all of you.

Thank you so much for your kind words about my sister-in-law. They helped me tremendously.

Oh Dragonheart, we agree, finding the warm spots is a very manly thing. When I find a spot I usually share it with Prinnie too.

Our biggest girlbean was just diagnosed with hypothyroid! She takes pillz now. we hope your mommie gets that regulated so she can feel better too!

That looks very warm and cozy Dragonheart. We are sorry about your mom having hyperthyroidism. Bouncey has it too and has to take medicine every day.

I bet you are getting excited about your little brother!

you look so happy and comfy there! very mancatly pose!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

That looks like such a wonderful place to lie! I'm glad you like your blanket there! The LL did not know that hyperthyroid meant you were cold all of the time. Now that makes sense because she has that disorder just like your mom does!

(her foot is much improved thanks for asking! Her sutures come out tomorrow!)

Dragonheart, you are so lucky to have such a thoughtful human. I hope your human gets things taken care of for the hypothyroidism--my human is slightly there too and I love that she is always cold. I think she is quite the little toaster at night though! (although she feels cold).

Junior said...

You look very cute curled up there!

The Furry Kids said...

You look very cozy, DH!

Tamra Maew said...

That looks like a furry comfy nap spot! I also always look for a lap but when there is none available theres nothing like curling up in the servant's robes!

Purrrs,

How nice of your Mommy to put a blanket on one of your favorite sleep spots for you. Oh, our Momym has thyroid disease too so she can definately understand how cold and things effect your Mommy!!

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

Moms are the best! That was very thoughtful of her to get your soft blanket for the radiator. You look warm and snuggled!

What a great idea Dragonheart! I'm glad you have a soft blankie on top of the radiator do keep you cozy too.

Thanks so much for keeping the Vishus Deer population down. You are so brave actually eating them! I wish I was brave like you.

I wonder if you'll share with your little brother....

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

What a nice mom for making it comfy for you!

Tybalt said...

Being warm is very important. How sweet of your mommy to put the blanket up there for you! You look very handsome and cozy.

Tyler said...

Aren't mom's great! With you not having fur, it must be very important that you stay warm. But I wouldn't mind going furless in the summer!

Sunny's Mommy said...

I know that must be a very warm spot, you're wise for choosing it. That's a beautiful photo of you :-)

TorAa said...

Oh dear Dragonheart, I so do agree with you when prefering a place to stay during these cold and dark days.

btw. Tomorrow evening I will present "Cats we met in Argentina".

That looks like a wonderful spot to relax and unwind after a hard day of being a cat : )

My Mum is hypothyroid too - when people visit our house they say it is like a sauna, but we like it : )

Eric and Flynn said...

That looks a very good place to sleep. It was nice that your mum put your blanket there.

What a darling photo! ML has been using a heating pad every night on her neck and shoulders and has started to keep it on low all day so Bianca can sleep on top of it. Do you have a heating pad? They rock.
