Fire-belly by Ghost-Dreamer Fire-belly by Ghost-Dreamer
Our cat Bobby, getting some fire in his belly. Normally he shares my seat or sits on my lap while I work but these days he has decided to sleep on the fireplace instead, winter must be getting the better of him.

my cats just moody. he gives you the dirtiest look ever when you enter a room and walks out. He sits dead regally and peers are you from half closed eyes.
He thinks he's royalty. I love cats, haha.

Cats need heat, does he ever lay in the sun a lot?

:iconghost-dreamer:
Ghost-Dreamer Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2008
Normally he doesn't actually, the other one does all the time though. Winter has been really cold in HK this year and it just has gotten the better of him I guess. He snoring happily in my lap now, covered head to toe in blankets :)

It might be a good idea to have him lay in sunlight whenever you can. Like us the need the sun. But Hey I thought I had the only cat in the world who loves to be covered in blankets. ROTFL It is so cool my cat is not weirdly unique. On cold nights which to her is any night that drops below 70 degrees. She sleeps with me covered in blankets. She has done it from the time she was a kitten. While her sister does not. It is good to know I am not alone on having a cat that does this. isnt it a tad unusual for it to get that cold in HK?

Oh they have plenty of opportunity for sunbathing, Bobby just doesn't seem to like it all that much. He'd much rather sleep on my lap or covered up in blankets (both is pure heaven). They both love to cuddle up with my wife as well and snore the night away :) nothing abnormal about your cat I'd say.

It's highly unusual weather for Hong Kong at the moment, only about 50 degrees at the moment, I'll be in Beijing in about a week where it's 10 ... not looking forward to that :)

I wish I was a cat.

That cat, well all cats really, sure seems to make the most seemingly uncomfortable surfaces seem downright appealing, don't they?

:iconghost-dreamer:
Ghost-Dreamer Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2008
They certainly do, although I have to admit that it isn't as hot up there as it seems, more like a nice warm spot, the hot air is blown out the front and there's some decent isolation between him and the fire, still smells like BBQ though :D

:D He sure does, its extra crispy cold in Hong Kong this year (this city isn't build for cold) so they're both cuddling up all the time or in front / on top of the fireplace.
