A Fall Reminder

Disciples of Otis,

Brother Oliver here,

If you live in the northern hemisphere, it is now officially fall. That means temperatures are dropping and it can get pretty chilly at night. All you kitties out there should keep in mind that, unless you are a Sphinx, your Guardians probably have a lot less fur than you do. They might need a little extra body heat to get them through the next few months. Fortunately, you are in a position to help them. Just take a look at how Brother Henry and I are meeting our smaller Guardian’s need for extra heat.

Henry and Oliver warmers

Guardians need extra warmth on these chilly days and nights. You can give it to them.

Remember, in order to properly warm your Guardian you must keep them still. Note how Brother Henry and I used the blankets to pin the Guardian down. Also note Brother Henry’s added precaution of holding the Guardian in place with one of his front legs. If implemented properly, this immobilization strategy will keep the Guardian from being able to do unnecessary things like rolling over or getting up to use the bathroom.

So follow Brother Henry’s and my lead and keep your Guardians toasty warm. They will greatly appreciate it!

So Sayeth Brother Oliver

    My felines have already taken this to heart, despite the temps here still being in the upper 80’s. Early Saturday, I woke to 4 of the felines practicing cold weather drills. 2 on each side of me, all pinning the blankets. They seemed distressed when I wanted to get up and insisted I stay ‘safe’ in the bed.

  4. Excellent work, boys. The Guardians are so lucky to have you keeping them toasty.

  5. There’s noting like kitties in the bed to warm you up!

  7. This strategy works very very well in our house, too. Good of you guys to publicize this strategy. All the Guardians will benefit!

  12. I’ve read that tabbies are “next to you” cats rather than lap cats. Is this true of the Brothers?
