Of Grass and Birds and Blue Heat


Yesterday, Mom loaded us into the car - for the first time in 2 months - and brought us to our house with the garden (we've been in our city home since early January) and we were all excited because we were feeling the Spring bug and have sooo been looking forward to eating some fresh grass in the garden...and we did...YESTERDAY. But, during the night, while we were sleeping, some horrible giant came along and put a HUGE white blanket all over everything and when we woke up this morning, the first thing Mom said was that she HAD to go outside right away and feed the birds...NOT US...THE BIRDS!! There we were, starving after not eating all night and she has the nerve to feed the birds FIRST!

Just look at them...they are sooooo spoiled...couldn't they have waited for us to get fed first? I mean SO WHAT if it is below freezing out there...WE ARE HUNGRY!!

Once we FINALLY got our breakfast we were happy, because we like being in the country house. Only here can we sleep on top of the big blue warm table/couch thing...we LOVE it!! I know it doesn't look soft and cushy, but it is so warm...kinda the same as laying on a cold tile floor in the hot summer but this is a hot tile surface in the winter...we just stretch out and take in all the heat!! (Note from Mom: that big blue thing Lautrec is talking about is what the French call a 'fourneau en faience' or in Czech a 'kachlova kamna'...a wood burning stove, if you want, surrounded by a large construction of porcelain tiles that hold the heat from the fire, keeping the house warm with a lovely, soft heat...which makes it very attractive to the cats!!)

Hi Tiny and Lautrec.
that is one fine looking blue heat 'thingy'. Mom loves the color. Too bad you left the city to look for green and what do you find white. Good job mom on feeding the birds first!!! Kitties you have to remember you two are inside and warm and maybe a tad hungry,the birdies are outside cold and hungry.
Everyone have a good weekend.
Madi and Mom

The tile stove looks heavenly. It really does!
