"Silky" my tortoiseshell kitty loves to spend these winter mornings in front of the fire. As soon as we let her out of her kennel, where she spends the night, she runs to the pellet stove and cozies up to the warmth. My hubby and I do too!
She is basically an indoor cat and can only go outside when wearing her harness and on a long leash. She does well with that and we're glad to have her safe in the house. (I believe that a predator got the kitty we had before Silky who was an indoor/outdoor kitty)
Now that spring is coming, Silky will be spending more time outside which she loves to do as well.
