Any closer and you'd have to sing, "CAT BUTTS roasting on an open fire......."

She goes into an utter trance when by teh fire, raising her head to get the heat on her chest and chin.

LOL ewbl! I can't understand how she can get so close and not bake. Ted gets as close and his jet black fur really gets hot

I'm just interested in the fact that you need a fire! We're wearing shorts over here!

It turned rather cold last week Elizabeth.. the month before the temperature was 20 degrees (F) higher!

Where is the rotissere kit in the fire? If you placed a chicken in the fireplace you might have a mess.

Earl the cat is disinterested in Barbeques until the food is placed on them. Then it becomes grend theft el gato.

Charming picture! Sometimes I envy Mimi, but not her place by the fire... its 81°F here, and it's not even noon yet.

I'll givee it consideration Mimi.

Well it would be a mess - chicken grease everywhere. One problem, cats can withstand heat better than us and love chicken.. I suppose it would be a great way to feed them!

Bloody hell Steve, that's about as hot as I can stand It will probably be a pretty hot summer here, with tempereatures heading into the 90s I fear.

A cat's body temperature is about 6° higher than humans, but that's still pretty close.

She is probably seeing something in the rising air that we don't.

That fire needs something cooking on it, at least popcorn, or marshmallows, although I doubt Mimi would appreciate the corn popping.

I gather that the cat brain secretes more endorphins that the human brain. but they do get insanely close, especially Ted with his jet black fur!

Knowing Mimi, who is too stupid to be scared by anything, I would imgine she would be trying to get the foil off the popcorn as soon as the first pop is heard!
