Frodo’s Feline Life Lessons: Look on the Warm Side of Winter

FRODO: Well this is my first winter and I gotta tell you I think it’s terrific! Now I know that Amarula hates Canadian winters but I think that’s just because–between you and me–she can be a bit of a nay-sayer! She tends not to look on the positive side of things. Since the temperature has dropped, mom has started using this indoor fire contraption that I think is just the cat’s pajamas! It’s like having your very own personal sunbeam in the house! Now I am new to this whole indoor, boxed sunbeam thingy, but I have learned a thing or two about how to get the most out of the clever contraption. It’s all about positioning…

  1. Firstly, before jumping into that comfy looking basket, I’ve found that it’s better to get started slowly…one body part at a time to be sure not to get overheated! First the back:

2. Then the toes:

3. Next the tummy (which gives you an excuse for a good stretch!):

4. Finally, just let it all hang loose…become one with the fire…

5. Now that you’ve got a good “base” warmth going on, it’s time to move to the basket. But don’t let the lure of the comfy cat bed distract you from your primary objective: keeping as much of your body by the fire as possible:

6. Don’t forget to lift up your arms to get your armpits in on the warmth:

7. Now comes my favorite part: invite a friend to join in on the fun!

8. Not only does a friend make a fire more enjoyable, but they also provide additional body warmth:

9. Sometimes if you’re really, really lucky, they’ll even give you a fireside bath!

10. Yeah! I don’t know what Amarula is talking about, I love winter!
