Lacey Mae is enjoying the first fire of the season. Woke up to 33 degree temps, a nice, calm, chilly morning. Perfect fire weather and she loves it! This time of year I will often find her cozied up to the floor register.
Yeah, it was really cold here yesterday morning and today as well, so I started a fire too. We uesd to have a cat who would lie on the registers in the floor like that (but he did it in the summer time when it was hot ).
Yes, she is a sweet girl. It will be a year in January since we adopted her and her temperament is quite sweet - sometimes. She used to nip but has not done that in a long time (knock on wood). She can get a bit of a temper if I pick her up and cuddle/kiss her and that ends up with a swat to my leg when I put her down, but on my lap I get head butts and nuzzles which are sweet. She just has that mean streak now and then but I've learned the triggers.
The MAE was an add on! Not an official part of her name but I used it one day and it sounded cute together. Hubby calls her Lacey Potatoes (???). No idea where that comes from either. Since I am the mommy, I overrule him and her official, unofficial name is Lacey Mae.
We love our wood fires, too. We've toyed with the idea of converting to gas but I love the snap and crackle of wood. We start up this time of year and finish early May. The downside is the house will smell like smokey chimney on occasion in the summer humidity. Not necessarily bad, but unpleasant when it's not wanted.
Aww what a comfy girl! She is just loving that warmth it looks like. I know what you mean about nicknames - our cats have always had tons of them. Mystique is already picking up nicknames - my husband calls her Misty and I call her 'Teeka' (spelling comes closest to how it sounds).
