    So, my cat has been hanging out in the spare room. I wasn't sure where she was going, I knew she'd given up her spot on the loungechair thingie. Today I found out,... The cupboard where my computers are. One of my girls who I lost recently used to hang out in there, apparently it's a good spot. shrug.

    It's warm :)

    The kittens I get always sit next to the fridge compressor

    One of ours (Nugget) bee lines to the oven when it's being/been used. Nice and warm on the stove top so she parks herself inbetween the hot plates.

    It makes sense for them to do this in winter, but even in winter over here it's never really that cold. Cats just seem to like it REALLY hot. When I moved in here, the people had left a pile of firewood so I used it up (there's a fireplace, like in a box thing with a door, can't think what you call them). My Mellie would sit so close up she'd feel so hot. fire.jpg

    She'd also sit right on top of the convection heater. She was made of asbestos :D

    Sounds like the typical 'cat anti-comfort'; able to get comfortable in or on something that would provide decent levels of discomfort to any other species of animal.

    I'm not sure about that. I used to know a guy who could fall asleep in the most ridiculous places.

    Yep, wood heaters are cat magnets. Scary how hot they get to the touch though. We would move them away somtimes.

    Well, hopefully he won't wreck them like Fiona's been trying with my venetians. She puts herself through and just squishes down all the ones below her. I really have to sort it so I can shut the door into the front rooms. The baby gate is just a hurdle to her.

    theyve both been surprisingly well behaved in that regard, no ruining of fly screens or the shitty venetians we currently have. our couch on the other hand...:wired:

    Hey, anyone had any experience with a giant cat wheel? I'm thinking Tinkerbelle has been putting on weight and could really do with some regular exercise, but don't want to go to all the effort and $$$ to sort out a cat wheel she won't use.

    Thinking I need to get my shit together and section off a cat run for her to play in outside (she's an inside cat and wouldn't last very long in an unprotected area).

    I've heard a lot from the Tonk community. The most negative thing is that some of them are really loud, but the majority are very happy and it sounds like most cats get the hang of it - well tonks anyway.

    Haha if I sleep in and the kids don't feed her, mine will jump on the bed and meow. If I don't respond she will gently lean in and *lick lick bite*.

    Most diet food will require you to feed them the same amount to start with, but it will just be lower calorie

    Cats ALWAYS pretend they've never had a square meal. Don't listen.

    tough love, being overweight is the highest risk factor for diabetes in kitties. Weight control food recommended!
