Frigid Friday

The Divine Ms. P: I call this my Kitty Cocooning in Her Condo pose.

Today the goal around here is to stay warm.

Let me backtrack a bit. Ever since we moved into this apartment 1 1/2 years ago, we've had heating issues, as in the heater would stop working (even after several visits from the super and the electrician.)

The last few days it's been unusually warm in here, too hot actually, and then the newest plot twist happened in our little soap.

On New Year's Day it smelled weird in here and the smoke detector kept going off even though Mom and Dad kept opening all the windows. The super came to our place several times and the last time he came our little castle was filled with smoke. Dad stayed with us to talk to the super, but Mom had to leave because her asthma was sneaking up and was ready to attack.

The heating system in our place has been shut off and the temporary little heater the super loaned us wasn't working during the night. Mom woke up with one of her "sore throat specials," but fortunately, Dad got the little heater to work this morning before he left for work.

It's finally starting to warm up in here and we're hoping by early next week this will all be a memory.


  1. What a yucky start to the New Year! We're sorry that you're cold. Ask your Mom if you can come over to our place to snuggle.

  2. We can definitely empathize since last year our furnace kept breaking. We were all holed up in the bedroom with a little heater for what seems like about a week - we had to buy a new furnace. :-/

    But that's no help to you poor freezing ones. I hope your furnace gets fixed quickly - meanwhile, body heat does help when you snuggle all together.

    Best wishes!

  3. We hope you can get your heat working right! But it gives you a good excuse to snuggle together!

  4. That's awful....but it sure is a good reason to spend time snuggling!!

  5. I just came back to say that the crushed up pills in Stinky Goodness don't work for all. My sister Ninna is telepathic and just *knows if something vaguely medicinal has been snuck into her food. ;-)

  6. Brrrrr. Thanks for the birthday wishes.

  7. I usually go under the sofie and sleep over the heat duct. If the heat is funny, I find ma.
    Happy New Year!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  8. I feel for you. I hate being cold. In this cold weather I have hardly been out at all, except to do what is absolutely necessary. Until the heat is working again, you needs to all snuggle up, preferably on something fleecy like wot I have on my (miewmie's) bed.

  9. Yup, staying warm is definitely a priority, especially given the current weather cycle.


    PS Mom wants to know if you would like to be an author on the Dreams With Deadlines blog. Just send her your email if you do, and she will invite you.

  10. Gosh this sounds grim for you all. I do hope that you have managed to stay cosy and cocooned and that the heating is now mended for good. We can't have kitties getting chilly, it's against da law!
