Hey  guys! Pfffffttt! No…I’m not giving you guys the raspberry. This one is strictly for the mom. Wanna know why? Let me tell you.

Ernie sticking his tongue out

So there I was last night…lying in front of the fire…warming my furs. When all of a sudden, the mom turned the fire off! Jeez! I was all warm and toasty. And then…BAM! I was freezing.

Our conversation went something like this…

Ernie lying in front of fire

Why’d you turn the fire off, mom?

But Ernie…I have to. I’m going to bed. I can’t leave the fire on all night while we’re sleeping.

If you really loved me you would.

I do love you, Ernie…that’s why I turned it off. I don’t want something bad to happen like the house burning down.

But I don’t wanna be cold all night.

Guess you’ll have to find another way to stay warm.

Like under the covers with you, mom?

Now there’s an idea. Just don’t hog the covers.

Okay, mom, but you’re still getting the raspberry.

  1. Poor Ernie, how could she?! MOL! Hope you enjoyed lots of snuggle time under the covers sweetie!

  2. if she really loved you she would have stayed up all night watching the fire so you could warmly sleep.

  3. We understand totally Ernie, being cold is no fun!

  4. Ernie, maybe you can talk her into a heated bed just for you! We plugged ours in this weekend, and Rusty has been cooking away!

  5. Well done, Ernie…negotiating! But that was pretty rude of her to snap off the fire before asking for your opinion, I mean, REALLY!

  6. That does deserve a raspberry.

  7. I love that raspberry. I’d take that anytime.

    Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your mom. ♥

  8. Oh Ernie…no one could ever resist you.

  9. So did you build a little fire under the covers to keep you warm? Maybe next time…

  10. Your fire looks so toasty warm! It’s a shame it can’t stay on all night.

  11. Aw that’s too bad, but I bet you found another warm comfy place to sleep.

  12. Even your raspberry is cute. We think snuggling with your Mom is a good idea.

  13. I’m glad you both were willing to compromise – and under the covers with Mom is every bit as cozy as in front of the fire Ernie!

    Hugs, Teddy

  14. It does cause dirty looks around here when those gathered by the fire get it turned off on them. Middle of the night is when they NEED it!

  15. My human would do exactly the same thing, if we had a working fireplace@

  16. We understand you Ernie, how does she dare ? Purrs

  17. Aw, we think under the covers with Mom is a better deal than the fireplace! Well, maybe for Mom anyway! 🙂

  18. Ernie, she does have a point about not wanting the house to burn down. Living outdoors would be Really Cold. Seems like a good compromise that you get to cuddle under the covers with her.

  19. Ernie…I love your 1/4 raspberry with your gold eyes and gawgeous shiny furs.
    I say thank your mom and then turn yourself into a cinnamon bun.
    Hugs Cecilia

  20. Mew mew mew Ernie at leest you HAVE a reel fire…LadyMew putss Fireplace Chanelle on THE Tee V…an triess to tell mee it iss ‘reel’…

    Pee S: Miss Sue wee LOVE you!!!

  21. I have to agree with your mom. Safety is the first priority. And at least you had a Plan B!

  22. How rude of your mom! Love the Plan B though.

  23. that is pretty much the kitties and i have every night too when I go to turn off the fire!

  24. Awww Ernie! Your Mama loves you and just wants to protect you! Sleeping with Mom is better than sleeping by the fire anyway!

  25. We wish we had one of those! But we know our mom would do the same as yours. Moms! We’re glad you didn’t actually freeze.

  26. We don’t have one of those fire things, so I always sleep with the covers when it gets cold. When the heaty monster is running I head for the vents where where the heats come out.

  27. Hmmm. A fire or unner-cover time. Close but fires are special. So a mild raspberry WAS called for.

  28. We would not want to see your den burned down,Ernie…we do not have a fireplace here…but if we did our den is so old and rickety it would combust with only a wee spark. Seems that cuddles is the best thing!

  29. Ernie, you could always snuggle with Zoey! Err … or not. We wish Wally was around for your AND your Mom’s benefit! We miss him too.

  30. Aww I think under covers with mom would be much warmer, Ernie 🙂 But of course, you have all rights to give her raspberry hahaha.

  31. hahahah Lucy does that also! We never ever leave the fire on all night!

  32. dood….we gotta agreez with mom on thiz one…..sorree buddy….noe flamez while sleepin….

  34. We love the fireplace here, Ernie. If it makes you feel better, our mom and dad turn off ours when it’s bedtime, too.

  35. Ooh, we wish we had a nice warm fire. We have a fireplace, but it only burns coal. Dad promised Mom gas logs for her birthday three years ago. She and all of us are still waiting. Under the covers isn’t a bad place, Ernie. You are lucky to have both options.

  36. Ernie, that’s awful. I can understand why she did it though. Too bad she couldn’t stay up all night so you could be cozy.


  37. Whoa! Is that a real fire or one of those fake flame things like the newer yule log on tv? Stay safe AND warm.

  38. Yeah, it sounds like she deserved that raspberry.
