Under the warmth of the "chick" lamp

Hi all you purdy furries!

This is me, Sweet Sweet Tannie Man, cooking myself under the thingy Mom calls the "chick" lamp.

Even though we are in the Frisky South in Texas, it can get pretty chilly here. Last winter we lived in a big woft (loft) in downtown Texas & when Mom moved us there she left her desk lamp on the floor. All us kitties kept walking by & fanging it (rubbing our noses on the shade). So Mom thought well, what the heck, she would just turn on the lamp until she could find a place for it in the waft. And guess what ...

I acted like a little fluffy yellow chick. I curled up like a ball & snoozed under the lamp. Then Miss Simba did the same thing ... Yep, then the BBB gave it a try. Then we all got crazy & began push each other out of the way for time with the lamp.

Our Mom moved different baskets & little bath towels around the lamp ... Then each of us picked a place & as Mom says, we all acted like little chicks about to hatch ... We snoozed under the "chick" lamp?

Just the other night it got down to 19 degrees & iced up outside ... Me & Miss Simba put our ongoing hissy-fits aside & warmed our bods together under the lamp. Nice & warm!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No worries, the lamp is very safe & stable ... The light bulb is protected far away from our curious noses!

Do you furries out there have favorite ways to stay toasty? Pls share ...

Warm purrrz,
Sweet Tannie Man
& The Whippy Curly Tails

That's a fun story of how that became the chick lamp :-) Our cats like to fight over the spot in front of the door, they can get lots of sunshine there.

Have a great weekend :-D

I have fur that keeps me warm.

Lucky snuggles with Humom when he gets cold.

The sissyfurs snuggle togeher in their bed if'n I'm not in it.

We have a heater in our room and the humans keep it toasty all the time, 'cause they like to be warm.

Punkin has a heater in his room and he snuggles with his kids.

I got a lamp directly above my box. I wouldn't live without it. Summer or winter.
