You guys! I know this picture of me in front of the fire is all too familiar to all of you. But you know how much I love the fire!

I would never leave this spot if I could. But a cat’s gotta eat and take care of business…if you know what I mean. Not to mention some meanie around here (I’m looking at you, mom) won’t leave the fire on during the night. What the fluff?!? I think I deserve to have this fire on ALL THE TIME…don’t you??

  1. That looks just perfect, Ernie! We’re sorry about the overnight situation. She doubtless cites safety concerns?

  2. Ernie, how nice!!! But at least you get to enjoy it during the day! MY goodness, how wonderful that must be. I have never had the opportunity.

  3. Ernie I totally think you have MORE than earned the right to whatever it takes to be comfy 24 hours a day. HOWEVER, Moms are pretty stubborn defending their positions on these matters so you may find it easier to ask Santa for a heated bed accompanied by a heated blankie to keep you nice and cozy 24/7!

    • Teddy,
      I have a heated bed and I use it a lot too. But there’s nothing like the warmth coming from the fire. I think the best thing would be to have my heated bed in front of the fire!

  4. If the fire is lit it is there to be enjoyed Ernie!

  5. We agree, Ernie…what the fluff!?!

  6. Me too Ernie me too. I love the fire and they don’t leave it on at night. What’s wrong with these Anthros???

  7. Ernie you look very comfy there; however, I’m 100% in agreement with Mom.

  8. Really Ernie, you don’t get to keep warm at night?!?!

  9. If I ever turned on the fireplace, I’m sure my cats would camp out too!

  10. Aww, the peeps sure don’t get it sometimes…but…if that fire was on at night and no peeps were there to attend to it, you don’t want your beautiful house to get burned in a bigger fire, do you??
    But yes, at night its the coldest, sheesh!

  11. No, you cannot leave it on unattended and I mean by a human not a cat. We have one like that and it doesn’t get operated a lot, only when it is chilly in the morning. It is pretty though.

  12. Ernie, seeing you in front of the fire makes us feel warm and cozy too !

  13. You do look so warm and cozy and nicely tucked in, Ernie! But I do agree that keeping fires off at night is best.

  14. We just wish we had a fire to sit in front of, Ernie. Our furnace is out again, so no warm radiators. Dad’s been promising Mom gas logs for years, but they have never materialized. Enjoy your snuggly time by the fire. XOCK, angels Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta & Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh

  15. You’re so lucky to have a fire to keep you warm and cosy Ernie.

  16. Yes, and I think your litter box should be by the fire too!

  17. Glad you are enjoying your fire. XO

  19. Hailey feels the same as you do about the fire. Phod has yet to enjoy it. Not sure why. Think he is just being silly and old.

  20. Oh Ernie, how lucky you are that you have that fireplace to keep you warm on these cold winter days.

  21. The fire is the best, Ernie. Your mom loves you, so she just wants to make sure nothing bad happens if the fire is left unattended. XO

  22. my kitties would love if i left the fire place on all night too! I thought I was getting the fireplace for myself but turns out it was for the cats!
