    My girlfriend and I do all the work, the cat sucks up all the heat. It's a wonder he doesn't self-combust!

    LOL... well - since we have an example of a cat stove in action - here's the non-cat version.... though he can't flatten out as much

    harley two questions.
    what breed is your dog?

    it looks like soapstone. very very nice looking and nice job setting it up.

    He's 1/2 Bull Mastiff and 1/2 Bull Terrier (trying to be PC here and not say "pit Bull")

    Yes - the hearth is made of soapstone tiles. I'm not very good at matching things up, and wanted something that would look good with the stove, so i figured, why not soapstone. Thanks I think it came out pretty good for a first attempt. The hearth is a little dirty in the pic, and really looks sharp when it has a coat of mineral oil on it. Unfortunately, whenever I give it a coat of oil, SOMEBODY (see picture) keeps licking the hearth!!!

    I have a "cat" stove too. She keeps burning her tail when I reload it. She gets to close to the open door.

    And my non-cat cat stove. We refer to her as the fire whore. She literally goes nuts when I go to fire the thing up. She does get nice and toasty, though.

    I hope the cat doesn't think that the stove is a good "landing" to go part way down on the trip down from the mantel

    Nope. He hasn't been up there since we fired it up a few weeks ago. Seems to be more interested in the cooler rooms in the house now. Maybe its a long-haired vs. short-haired thing.
