Now most of you know that here at the Forty Paws we have lots of beds. We have the hammocks that I make, we have 5 tall cat trees, we have conventional hooded cat beds, and we have a heated cat cup that we bought a few years ago for Bow since he is getting along in years and his joints are a bit painful and arthritic.
For months no other cat figured out that this bed was a cozy 102F. Only Bow knew its therapeutic effects. Until a couple of weeks ago. By some chance, Gatsbi discovered the heated bed. Gatsbi seeks out any heat generating source. She lies less than a foot in front of the space heater. She lies in sunspots coming in through windows. So, Gatsbi found Bow's heated cat cup and commandeered it for her own.
Not wanting to leave Bow out in the cold, we purchased a second heated cat cup. And the very day that I unpacked it and plugged it in, Jenny discovered it. Jenny NEVER slept in the first heated cat bed. NEVER. So now we have Gatsbi in one heated cat cup and Jenny in the other. And Bow left out in the cold with no heated bed.
What's a Maw to do?
