Best of both worlds

The best of both worlds is not being inside or outside, but inside and outside! We have had some very cold frosty weather. Feeling the warmth of the sun in the southern window, Marigold and Opie wish they could be outside. They look at me with asking eyes, but the answer is no to them!

A short while later the two big boys Zeke and Scooby are insisting the catio be opened up for them. I relent. Zeke jumps right out. I may have well just put him in the chest freezer, as it is so cold!

Scooby is not so hasty to jump outside. He knows a secret–well, it is not a secret–everyone knows it, but only one cat at a time can enjoy it.

Scooby knows the furnace is on, and blowing warm air up out of the vent below him, so he can sit in the window with his nose in the cold, and his body being warmed!

  1. Zeke reminds me of my OBCC. He has the same type of fur colors and a thick tail.
    Marigold and Opie remind me of bookends.

    It’s presently 57F in Florida. You’d think it’s -5 the way the cats are hogging the heat. 🙂

      1. Other Brother Coon Cat enjoys being by a heat source, often my lap. The boys seem to have their favorite routines. I think they’re psychic, too. The minute I started typing about him, OBCC jumped up on his side of the desk and started nuzzling my fingers.

  2. Sounds like it gets really cold where you are. It gets near freezing here but mom will still give me a minute or two of open window time in the morning. I’m an indoor kitty without a cool catio so window time is important. I sit ON the heater vents in my house!


  3. That is a nice secret, truly is the best of both worlds. Thank you for the caring words you left on my blog about the loss of Stinky.
