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!
