Will Kitty Be Cold? - Page 2

post #31 of 34
My kitties sleep on newspaper when its cold, apparently it retains the warmth to ages. Even if they have blankies in their beds, they still go for the newspaper.

I'm so sorry. I hope you find something soon.

I'm sure the cats would be ok. Raven & Nabu tend to be overly dramatic anyway. I know they'd be fine if we *had* to keep it that cool. They have plenty of cuddler beds and Stimpy to keep them warm. Stimpy really does have a thicker coat than they do.

You just might notice your kitties eating a little more. My guys always seem hungrier when the weather cools. The couple of nights the apartment got down to 65* they ate every last scrap of their food by morning. I think it was just above 30* outside.

Hmm. I think I will give them an extra bit of food, just in case... It does take more energy to stay warm. They've been begging, of course; but since they're normal weight I never thought much about it! I'll see if they start leaving food in their bowls; if they do, I guess they didn't need it after all.

The weather's a bit warmer now--60s. And I've rolled up some rugs and put them in all the door cracks. So during the night it's not nearly as cold now. I'm sitting in my short-sleeved PJs and am quite comfortable. Also, I've gone on a diet--the restricted calorie intake saves me a little money on food. And I need to lose weight anyhow.

I've gotten in touch with a temp service. If they can find me at least some temporary work, that'll be better than nothing. I officially hate being unemployed... I mean, you think it'd be nice to have all that leisure time; but not when you're worried about stuff.

Tiny just headbutted me... what a sweetheart! Even if he does like to pounce my feet.

I keep my house at 68 and I still find it cold. I have a fleece throw for them on the sofa as well as a large self heating pad on their bed and a condo tent with nice warm pads too. I know during the winter they like to sleep under my blanket with their heads peeping out. It's really funny and cute!!
