Unplugged

I unplugged The Cat Hotel warming pad yesterday.  The daytime temps are well up into the 70's for a few days, and the overnight lows are warm enough that I can say Winter is officially over.  In a month or so, I'll remove the old straw from both The Cat Hotel and Mama's House, and add new.  The guides say to change the straw once a year...I do it twice; guess my OCD is showing!  After finding mold in The Cat Hotel once, due to water leakage, I want to make sure Patty and Sweetie have the optimal sleeping arrangements. Which means I have to mess with their shelters!  Fortunately, both cats are used to it.  At first, they ran off when I opened their shelter, and I worried that they would not return.  They did, after a few hours.  Nowadays, they both sit and watch me, safe in the knowledge that I will return to them the freshest, neatest sleeping quarters in town!

You take such good care of them. I guess they never ventured upstairs? There is always next year... maybe sweeten the path with some silvervine?

You are smart to change the straw twice a year, I would think it gets all kinds of germs in it when it gets wet and warm.
