Photo Hunt - Hot


The theme of this week's PhotoHunt is Hot. Mimi's been told she shouldn't go too near the fire, but does she listen? Does any cat listen to us, except when they think we say food???



Actually it's just sunlight reflecting off her fur, but it looks like she's glowing like embers!

Your poor cats really do have a rough life. I like the reddish reflection of her fur.

A little creepy for me. The cat's in deep slumber and is glowing. Lol.

My photo hunt picture is up. Come check it out if you get a chance. :)

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yep - cats rarely, if at all, take our advise!

Cheers.

ipanema said...

she really looks hot in that photo! :)

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. I'm glad you enjoyed seeing Mimi. She's look at me wanting to be picked up as I type. She can't jump into my lap because of her CH.

A. said...

It's funny how they always find the hot spots, no matter how inconvenient. Ours knows exactly where the heating pipes under the floorboards.

Dragonheart said...

Lovely photo, Mimi! :) Your fur looks lovely gleaming in the sun!

Eric and Flynn said...

Your kitty looks very pretty with the sun reflecting on her furrs. We wish we could be with her cuz it's freezing here, and we DON'T LIKE IT!!!

Daisy said...

Sunshine on the furs feels very, very good!

Bad Kitty Cats & Megan said...

She does look very hot and ember like! Of course no kitty cat listens. It's we humans who must listen to them.

Great picture. It's a fantastic shot and shadow and sun play in it! Happy Photo Hunting and Purrs from us!

Gattina said...

Very true ! As proud owner of 5 cats (or rather the other way around) I experience this every day !

Siani said...

Great shot - my moggies are sun worshippers, too. I tried to get a shot of Leo basking in front of the gas fire, but in typical, contrary Leo fashion, he got up and wandered off as soon as I got the camera ready. Have a great weekend, Shaunie!

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

That's a cool effect and I like it. Neat.

Hootin' Anni said...

LOL...the sun reflection is gorgeous on the fur tho...and ya...I have to SO AGREE...just when do cat's listen to us?

abe-hap said...

definitely looks like shes on fire - great pic.

Team Tabby said...

Mimi is a gorgeous cat, and her fur does look like embers!

Mark said...

I sometimes think that all cats do, its such a dogs life..

Katney said...

Of course cats don't listen. that would be absurdly un-catlike.

TeacherJulie said...

I really thought she is too near a fireplace, but she certainly has a strange glow about her.

Btw,off topic, I got something for you here:

Have a great weekend :)

Chen said...

Your cat enjoys sunbathing as much as my doggy :)

Andrée said...

Great photo. She is so comfortable there. I know what you mean: my father's cats actually slept UNDER the wood stove. I was always so fearful that they would spontaneously combust but they never did (thank god).

Chris said...

i thought she mus b really hot with the light on her fur :)

Barbara H. said...

It does look like she's glowing! Cute picture.

Expat Traveler said...

Oh very neat, I love red reflections and playing with them like that!

PowersTwinB said...

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Katya said...

Very creative, Jams! Mimi certainnly does look "radiant"! A very befitting and terrific photo for the theme!

Sabine said...

Beautiful photo! Cats do like it hot, don't they?
Happy weekend!

Heather said...

Very cool hot shot.

Krista said...

LOL- great take on the theme. Thanks for the visit!

Joyismygoal said...

Heart of Rachel said...

For a while, I got scared thinking the cat got hurt. I'm so glad it's just a reflection.

Thanks for visiting. Take care!

**"Liza"** said...

ohhh i though your cat is dead beacuse of the fire for sure..whew! thats relief..great one for this week.. :) mine up too if you have a chance..

Dave Marlow said...

That's a beautiful picture. I may use it as my computer wallpaper. There's a look of peace, even amidst the "flames". Cheers.

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyone. Rest assured I would never put up a photo of an animal suffering. I have to make a confession. though. I did maipulate the light and ciolour levels to make the fire effect look a bit stronger than it really was.

Dave, you are welcome to use it. She is a beautiful little cat who's disability does not stop her living a happy life

Katrin said...

So cute! I bet she is feeling just fine...

pelfy said...

Whoa! I thought she's really burnt. Good take for this week. Have fun!

Beaman said...

That is one happy cat. She's glowing inside I bet.

Dragonstar said...

Lovely! I had a cat once (many years ago) who insisted on sleeping inside the fender and close to the bars of the coal fire. Nothing would stop her, and she was frequently singed.

jams o donnell said...

She certainly does glow on the inside Beaman! She is disabled (she has Cerebellar Hypoplasia) but she is a loving, if not too bright, little cat.
