West Coast Edition—Perspective
HIYA! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Breaking news of the day— US—CATS!! And our view of so much stuff I can’t even count how much stuff.
I am joining my Best Feline Girl Friend (BFGF), Cathy Keisha, as co-anchor, for our new feature “From a Cat’s Perspective™”. We will be discussing topics, some serious and others kind’a playful like the one that is launching our show. Our feline perspectives will be front and center ‘cuz humans clearly have a tough time understanding us, meaning “us cats”. Humans can be pretty ignorant about how cats see the world, our place in it, and what we know meets our particular interests and
Professor Keisha tossed it over to me after her East Coast edition was posted. And now it’s time for you to hear from Professor Savannah on this important topic. Our lead story today is “Do Cats Need Heated Cat Beds”? As you already know, cats do not always agree with each other and have the occasional debate held “cat style”. That means there are usually smacky paws involved. But Professor Keisha and I will not bring our new series to that level. But we try not to share our responses with each other about any of our topics.
Humans seem to get the fact that cats’ body heat is warmer than humans and they seek us out when they go to bed to steal our heat—especially during cooler months.
For lots of us cats it is confusing when we get pulled closer during the cold months and then roughly tossed aside during warmer months. You see, there it is. Humans can’t make up their minds.
Whereas we cats, why we like our warmer body heat all year long, right? Now, I have to say, I do enjoy having my human turn up her winter electric blanket which is on our king size bed. I like my side to be on low temp just to get my place warm before I settle in for a nice nap under my Winter cat tent. But, it must be turned off shortly after I get comfy as I don’t like being too warm.
And then of course, while not an electric heated bed, I do very much enjoy having my “sun puddle” heated bed. Nothing makes me purr more than climbing onto my cat tower to find that Mr Sun has made my nap spot nice and toasty.
My answer for today’s From A Cat’s Perspective™—”Do Cats’ Need A Heated Cat Bed?” is “.120985479 per cent YES” and “.890011222 per cent NO”. Make sense? I’m sure the math works because I consulted with our feline math wizards at Trout Towne Tabbies. Bottom line, why spend green papers on a heated cat bed when we cats can take advantage of our humans’ electric blankets and/or the warmth Mr Sun provides naturally. Either one costs nothing, zip, zero out of our cat expense column on the humans’ budget, right??
