We are preparing our kitties for winter at our house. The past week has had highs in the forties, and we will be back to that in a few more days. Last weekend, we even had some snow. Kitties love warmth, so we are making sure they stay warm with the colder weather. Sometimes I’m not sure cat bro Bert appreciates our help, but we try our best.
Fall Scratcher House
Every year Mom buys the cats a scratcher house at Christmas time. This year, Gramma told us Aldi was selling one for fall. Of course, Mom had to go and get one. Both Bert and Sophie like scratcher houses, but Bert is the biggest fan! As soon as construction was completed, he moved right in.
This house is a real bargain at half the price of the ones Mom usually buys, and it is a double long, not to be confused with a double wide in a trailer park. It is actually the size of two of the usual homes we buy for half the price of one!
Not only does this home has a front door, it has a side door, and lots of windows, plus two scratcher pads! Mom is a Realtor, and she says it is the best deal on the market for homes this fall!
Our only hope is that we don’t end up with a domestic dispute again! Bert and Sophie sometimes get a bit rough. Back in 2016, they destroyed their home and we had to call in the cops!
Cat Snuggle Cube
Bert also loves this soft sided cube bed he reviewed a while back. During the warm months we put it away because he won’t use it, but now we find him snuggled in there quite a bit.
Olivia has taken it upon herself to remove the pillow often and shake it out. Bert complains of a slobbery wet pillow after she is done, but we feel she is doing him a favor!
Soon it will be time for the evening fireplace wars. Thankfully we dogs outnumber Bert, so we do usually get the best spot, but he does fight for the spot he wants.
That’s how we prepare our kitties for winter. Are your felines ready?
