We upgraded our fireplace a bit. It grew a mantel.
The cats don’t care, though. The business end of the fireplace is unchanged, and that’s what they want.
Alice will stare at the dark fireplace until we light it. Gert just wants her belly rubbed.
But when I am up in the office, Gert likes to settle on the box between my chair & window. Just to be near Dad.
I can’t wait to get up on that mantle because it belongs to me.
