Mancat Monday

Real Mancats love fire!!!!

Yes, I do adore fire. This was the first weekend that it was cold enough for Mommy and Daddy to build a fire in the fireplace in our den. They placed those pillows next to the hearth so I would have a comfy place to sleep because I am such a fire cat. Fire even matches my furrs you know, so I am definately a fire cat!

Mommy is convinced that I would crawl into the fire itself if it were not for the screen they put up to block me (it's actually supposed to block embers I think) because I just adore a warm, crackling fire. And look at the classical stlye print pillow beside me. It matches my classical name so its gotta be my spot, right?? Fire good! Fire warm! Fire manly!!

You are SO lucky to have a fireplace!!! I loved the fireplace at the Chalet we stayed in, in Switzerland last year. Sadly, our house doesn't have a fireplace. You look like you are really enjoying the fire! :)

It is a very manly thing to love fire. I like it when the fire is on here too. But don't be like Pepi!

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Fire is very manly! That sure looks nice and toasty. We don't have one of those in our house. Hey Ma! How about getting us one of those?????

The Furry Kids said...

You do look very manly next to the fireplace. I like how it matches your furs.

I know. I do not have fireplace (this is Florida after all) but I love it when Bean turns on cat heater. I will lay in front of cat heater all now. Best thing in world!

Tybalt said...

Dante, you and I have a similar hobby. I'm also standing in front of the fire in my blog today! Yes indeed, it is manly to love a nice warm and toasty fire on a chilly day.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

YOU are so lucky to be able to have a fire...we have one of those dark places in our house, but there is never a fire in it. I don't know why that they would not light up a fire, just because it is 81 degrees today isn't a good reason. Oh Capt'n Jack I think Dante would be good friends with Ping...he and Dante look a lot a like.

Fireplaces are wonderful. We really like it when our beans build a fire and we all gather together.

Trixie always has to stand in the fireplace and snoopervise when Dad gets the logs ready.

My mom broke out a Duraflame log last night. My kitten brother and sister had never seen fire before. My mom has always been disappointed that none of her other cats seemed to want to sit in front of a fire, but the kittens loved it and this year I decided to join them. There's nothing better than snuggling up to another kitty in front of a fire. I hope it's cold again tonight for all of us!

MoMo said...

You lucky kitties! Love fire in a real fire place. We have one but SS is too lazy to light it.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oooooh, you fire looks nice and warm and cozy AND you have all those nice fluffy pillows - what a lucky cat you are!

Chancy said...

You are a lucky man-cat...I love a fireplace. Woman-cats can love fireplaces, too. I wish my Dad would build a fire...that would be sooooo cozy and warm. Maybe after dinner.

PB & J said...

We love our fireplace too! Usually Bert is the only one brave enough to sit by it, since it's in the dog's room - but every once and a while Pearl and I will hang out to warm our bellies too!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Do electric fire-like-woodstoves count? That's as close as we're getting in our house. But I do like fire!! Yar!!

Annie Mosaic Cat said...

Oh how I envy you (and think you are very handsome too!)
There is a wood stove in this house but after heating with wood for over ten years in CO, Mosaic Lady refuses to use it.
She'd rather pay a bazillion dollars a month in winter for electricity.
There is no end to her LAZY-NESS.

Kimo & Sabi said...

Yep - we luv da fire god!

Skeeter And LC said...

We haf decided it is time to haf a fire again. We'll take pictues, too.

Beezer said...

Dante that looks like the perfect place to be. The Meezers are right, just the place to take your girl-kitty for a little one on one time!

Mickey said...

What a nice fire!! I only get to have one if I was at Grammie's
house. You look mighty fine and you should have your own pillow!
Enjoy the heat!

Kelly Cat said...

Dante, yes indeed, you do look quite comfortable and man-catly in front of that roaring fire. My humans won't put anything in our fireplace except candles.

michico*Adan said...

Sunny's Mommy said...

In front of the fireplace is obviously the perfect place for you!

Chase said...

My brother would try to crawl in the fire if he could too. It is a little too warm for me so I keep my distance but I do enjoy the warm spots nearby. (:
