Wordy Wednesday

As many kitties know, it is Winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
Usually, areas closer to the North Pole experience cold and snow.
This year, many kitties in traditionally warmer climates are
getting snow and cold, some for the first time!!
We thought we would share with you some of our ways of keeping warm.

Here, Tillie is on a cozy pad on a chair.
This works best if you have a furnace and it is on.
(turn it up high if your Mom lets you!)

If it is sunny, you can sit in the sunshine(indoors).
Here, Georgia is on the porch.
The screened windows have clear plastic on them.
However, if it is windy, then you have wind chill !!

If there is wind chill, then it is best to come in the house
and snooze under a blanket like Georgia.
(smart girl)

My favourite way to keep warm is to sleep on
the floor vent sometimes when the furnace is on.
Mom keeps the temperature down when she is at work!!! humph!!!
My new fave way to stay warm is to snooze on this heating pad!!

Oh man, it is SO warm and cozy!!!

I can even have a warm bath,heehee
Sadly, this fine device is NOT on when Mom is away!
This purple sleeping bag is also very cozy and warm too.
It holds body heat well so you can stay warm.
The ideal is to have your Mom/Dad stay home
to keep these devices running, or to have a personal
servant to attend our every need ,heh,heh

I hope these pointers help you all to stay warm and cozy!!!!!!

We found our new spot... a warming

My favorite way is the special bed I have right near the fireplace. Now if we'd get some cold in the PNW!!!

Hansel said...

It's cold here too, so we definitely appreciate your tips!

Cory said...

You are brilliant! We gotta get one of those heating pads.

The Paw Relations said...

Brilliant post! We're very lucky as we have our mum home most of the time to keep the heating on.

Busby and Raymond said...

Excellent advice! We're big fans of what we call the "warm butt spot". As soon as my Mom gets up off the couch, we hurry and lay down where she had been sitting.

Brian said...

It is so nice to hear the best tips from a comfy cozy expert!!! Thanks for sharing...beautiful pics!

Hi Mickey,
Thanks so much for these very useful advise on staying warm. We haven't tried a heating pad but will be talking to the Humans about that.

You guys seem to know what to do when it is cold. We hope it warms up for you all!

catsynth said...

Those are all good tips for staying warm. Fortunately, California is not experiencing the kind of cold a lot of our friends in the southeastern US have been enduring. But it's still good to keep warm - Luna is quite good at that.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh, good ways to stay warm. It was good of yoo to let all da kitties who are not used to da cold in on da secrets to keeping warm.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Those are great tips to keep warm! Since we are in an area that is cold all the time in winter we are always looking for good ways to keep warm!

DEBRA said...

We love the way you are snoozin on the warm blankie!

Mickey, you are such a smart mancat, I am sure this is really helpful for the kitties that never have the cold. I like the sleeping bag idea.
I have a huge pile of polar fleecy blankies in the kitchen hear the sunny window. That is a great nest of warmies for me... or, if there is not sun, I go upstairs and sit in my bloo bed right next to the space heater that mom keeps on 24/7

I also like sitting up over the refrigerator where I have my heatvent.

You have a lot of good ideas for all of you to keep warm.
