Mr Nice Guy

Sunday, February 07, 2021

We have an indoor cat, Spooky. We have one and a half outdoor cats. An orange one named Roughy, because he looks a little rough, and the other half cat, that we don't see much of, is a siamese cat, that we named Slinky. Heck, we named all of them because its faster than saying "that rough looking orange cat (Roughy)", etc. Plus there is a fish named "orange roughy". Spooky is black and white long haired, and the Siamese cat that gently slinks around occasionally... Slinky.

So Mr Nice Guy (that's me) built Roughy a cat house. I put an electric pet heater in it, a radiant thing ... looks like a small flat screen TV. It doesn't get too hot, not like an electric grill, but it heats his cat house. I added some extra foam insulation today. It had some, but Mr Nice Guy added more today.

Temperature right now is -24 C outside, and +9 C inside Roughy's cat house. I know that because I've got some wireless thermometers reporting to my weather station in the human house. For you folks in non-metric parts of the world, that is about -11 F outside, and about +48 F in Roughy's cat house.

Mr Nice Guy also put heated water and cat food bowls there for him, so he doesn't have to lick a block of ice when he is thirsty.

This last summer we had no cats, they just showed up on our acreage from nowhere.
