To Heat or Not To Heat?

That’s the question asked in many a household on the northern hemisphere these days.

This cat was clearly waiting for me to initiate the heating season.

When I explained to her that I try to abstain from using the heater as much as possible, for environmental, financial and geo-political reasons (especially here in Hungary, a country which is buying more, not less Russian gas), the cat soon found another solution.

And then, taking it from there, we found a joint solution to keep each other warm without fueling Russia’s war against Ukraine.

So, don’t lament about the high gas prices. Just get a cat!

  1. We never use the heat. I know I live in SoCal but it does get below freezing here, and my rental house has very poor insulation.
    Anyway, we have two cats and a dog. The elderly cat sleeps ON me, the younger cat sleeps with my daughter, and the dog sleeps with my grandson. Cats are great! They even purr a lullaby to help you sleep 😉

    • Indeed, the purring is fantastic!

      Only things that bothers me about this cat is that she brings mice (and once a rat) into the house. Last night, she woke me up again to proudly present a (this time dead) mouse.

  2. Heating? My current problem (still in the northern hemisphere) is whether to cool or not. Get these furry creatures away from me.

    A big fluffy dog serves quite well as a guard/ heater/ comforter/ good listener too. They too bring gifts, especially if you live in the countryside. Like rabbits… or what is left once they’ve caught them. It’s good job I’m not delicate!

    • Reading about the rabbit, I am glad I only take care of cats, not dogs.
      Although this particular cat has already brought mice and a rat. And others have brought moles and birds.
