A Tale of Two Photos
One night last week was super windy. Sometimes, when that happens, the wind forces the smoke back down our chimney and into the house. It’s gross and it smells and last week it set off the smoke detector while we were sleeping. Fun times. The upshot of the whole situation was that Dale let the fire go out until the storm passed us by. No biggie, we just turned up the heat.
Well. Let me rephrase that and say, no biggie for us. Mason, on the other hand, considered this a very big deal. He went all day and all night without a fire. He was not happy.
You can see him here, huddled close to the radiator in the kitchen. Note the look of disgust and protest on his furry face. And please note that I took this photo on my way to work so he was forced to go that entire day without a fire as well.
Finally, that night, Dale got the fire going again and Mason was pleased.
I think it’s safe to say that all is right in his world once again.

That wind was something else!
What is a kitty to do when his staff gets out of control and makes wild decisions?! Glad Mason’s world is back on its’ cozy axis.
The picture of Mason huddled against the radiator is so funny! I have a vent in my bathroom that comes out from under the vanity and my cats (4) all huddle there.
I love this! Mason, you and I would be huddled together! 🙂
In my next life, I hope I come back as a cat (with a family that builds me a fire, of course)!
Terrible, terrible. I’m glad you didn’t tell us this as it was happening, because I would have had to call PETA. 😉
Poor Mason! I am glad he has the fire back!
Oh, Mason — as Tom would say — you really fell into the $%!*.
(But you know what Tom would really say.) 😉
Pumpkin has taken to protesting by sitting ON the heating floor vents. 🙁 Thus blocking the heat in that room for the other cat, Stitch.
That is such a funny picture of Mason in front of the fire – love it!! Glad all is back to normal now.
My animals just adore the fire. The nights we don’t have one – they are huddled on the couch with us trying to keep warm. The fur coats aren’t enough? Love the look on Mason’s face next to the heater!
In my next life, I’m coming back as a cat. And, a cat that will be as fetching as Mason!
Poor Mason! I have an electric fireplace in the den and when it’s on, one of my cats will lay right on the floor in front of it. This same cat also lays on the floor vents in the living room and blocks all the heat from coming out for the rest of us.
Mason needs to retrain his minions! This is unacceptable! I guess Mason does not sleep with you? I am certainly glad that things are back as they should be. These photos are hilarious.
Now that the story has a happy ending, I’m glad you shared it! that second photo of Mason really made me smile.
Nights with heavy winds are so hard to deal with, but your added complications would make it even more disconcerting. I’m very glad to see that all is right in Mason’s world again.
That looks like one happy kitty!
