Ok, so the reason we're all here is simple, we are, for the most part cavemen. (I know there are a few women on here too) What more could a caveman ask for then to play with wood, steel, iron, stone and fire. The heat and the gratitude from our cave women is a bonus. But what about man's best freinds? Our dogs and our cats. They enjoy it too. Sometimes, it seems more than we do. As much as I enjoy the fire and the heat, I wouldn't lay as close to my stove as the cats do. Post any pictures of pets enjoying the stove.
