Farm Photo 1/10/08: Cat On A Hot Tin Roof


Feline Friend Or Furry Heat Detector?


Actually, the old tin roof on The Shack probably isn't real hot, but the woodstove chimney must put out some heat because cozied up next to it is one of J2's favorite winter places to be. Plus the view is great.

As for the big cracks in the top piece of the chimney, they happened when the whole thing flew onto the lawn during that bad storm back in July 2006 (the one where
the greenhouse blew apart and Lindy The Chicken went missing). I figured we could just patch it back together with duct tape (I love that stuff), but Joe used some sort of special high-temp glue instead. So far so good.

  1. Love the picture. For so many things...cat, chimney, tin roof.

    My little "red tin roof" place had it's chimney and insert blown across our yard in mid 07. Crazy sight when you drive in the yard.

    I haven't put mine back yet.

  2. I looked at this photo and thought it was a look back. Those years reminded me of your New Cat a little bit. Ah.

  4. How is that cats always know the warmest place around? It must be their feline 6th sense:)

    I featured you today on my blog. I hope that's OK.

  7. How cute! I love kitty ears. Naturally those kitty ears just happen to be located near a heat source.
