Fool Proof Method to Reduce Heating Costs

November 28th, 2006 at 02:17 am

Sleep with a cat!

Actually, aside from helping to reduce heating costs by acting as a living space heater, our cat Madrigal was a bargain. She is a pure-bred Burmese, which typically sell for over $400.

Previously, Madrigal was owned by a breeder and used to bred kittens for sale. After 4 years of hard work, the breeder wanted her to go to a loving home with no other pets where she could relax and lavish in the attention of her humans. Hence, she found her way to Bean household. We re-imbursed the breeder for the cost of her neutering, but otherwise was free.

Prior to this kitty, I was unfamiliar with Burmese cats or any pure-bred cat. I most say I'm a Burmese convert and can't say enough great things about the breed. They are extremely affectionate and love people. Burmese are often called the "dog" of the cat world for their allegiance to their owners. She's never far from us and hates to be alone.

    i have 3 bedwarmers as well (4 if you count DH, 5 if you count the heated mattress pad!). on likes to sleep under the blankets with me, one sleeps on my head, and one on DH's feet. actually, all three of the cats take turns sleeping on my head: i like to think they see it as a place of honor rather than "whose turn is it to fart in mom's face"!

    Pretty kitty. But does the amount you spend on vet bills and cat food and cat paraphenalia outweigh what you save on heating bills? ;o}

    We have 2. One of them loves to sleep on our bed. The main problem is that I'm allergic to cats!

    Heheh. Cute. I don't have any right now, but I do like cats.

    Oh, she's very alert and curious looking. I have a tabby who alternates between sleeping between my legs or against my back. She always digs under the covers as i keep the house very cool.
