The topic: Winter is here!


Winter is here and boy, it’s cold!  It’s raining again, supposed to have snow in our local mountains.  I remember a long time ago when the snow would be hip deep, maybe deeper.  If we’ve had any in the past few years, it’s no more than a foot or so and it’s not around for very long.  Brian took off this morning for Ranchita.  He and Mark went up.  One of the things Brian wanted to do was to get the trailer door changed out.  I wonder if he’ll see any snow.


Yesterday most of the cats spent the day indoors.  And you know it’s cold when Benny is in and Sammy is in the house, not outside or in the garage.  That’s Daniece, Sammy and Richie on the sofa yesterday.  And the bed in the living room was full of cats.  Must have been six or seven and the cat beds on the entertainment center were pretty full, too. 

We haven’t seen Angus for a while now, over a week.  I wonder what happened to him, I wonder if he’s okay.  Repete, KittyMeeze and OC stay in the entry way for a good deal of the evenings, on the blankets that are on the shelters that are up off of the ground.  It’s warmer there and not wet, like the ground.  Earlier this week on one of the boards I frequent, someone mentioned a self heating pad for cats.  They linked to it and I checked it out.  It looked just like something I could use for the out fronts, even for the guys in here and I could do away with the heating pad.  So, Wednesday, I went to both PETsMart and Petco and neither carried it, although both have it online.  It’s called a “self warming thermal cat cushion”.  They were $19.99 each and if you buy fifty dollars worth of stuff, there’s free shipping. Well, I found that shipping on forty dollars would be about seven dollars, so Brian said to go ahead and order three of them.  I’ll have one inside and two for the ferals in the entry way.  If you want to check them out, please go through my affiliate.  You can get there at that link in the header, the one that asks if you’ve enjoyed yourself here.

Speaking of my affiliates, I’m really disappointed that more people haven’t checked them out.  I know there are lots more people reading this diary than have visited my affiliation page.  It doesn’t cost anything to at least look.  And I’ll soon make sections for clothing, food, pets, etc, so it will be easier to follow.  I’m just really sad that hardly anyone has even gone over there to check it out. 

Welp, hubby’s home and he wants me to look something up for him.  Real fun. Always real fun.  spin2

Thanks for the info on the self warming thermal cat cushion.  I’ve been looking for something just like that for my “bed kitty” so went to your affiliate, Petsmart, and ordered one!  Since she’s a black beauty, I ordered the gray leopard.

You might want to check out reptile under tank heaters too. They look just like that warmer for cats but half the price. I have two box turtles that I keep warm at night in their home with one and it works great. I visited some affiliates today!

Thanks, Melanee, I just looked at them and they need to be plugged in.  These cushions I bought don’t need to be, which makes them wonderful for outside cats.

Another thing you might want to check out is the self heating back pads for humans and wrap them in a blankie. you can get 3 of them for $10. However they are not reuable.
