As many wrote in response to Tucker’s exploration of the cylinder cat-house, it’s fun to see our beasts look into new things and locations. Parker has been with me for more than three months now, and he still finds novelty about the apartment.
Recently, he stepped into one of the heated cat-beds for the first time. He must have liked it because he has come back to it. He doesn’t often stay long in its warm comfort, which I find odd. Even if some of the others, such as Tucker, visit the heated cat-beds infrequently (in his case, usually at night), they normally remain there for some time. But Parker is actually a restless fellow, and likes to try numerous positions and locations for his relaxation. I can’t see that that would be relaxing, but it seems to be his way. He does eventually settle down and snooze.
But now he knows the warmth the heated cat-beds afford. Perhaps when the year turns cold again, he will find their temperatures more congenial. He may simply not need them right now; his sturdy body may be enough to ward off any chill. But he is aware of the beds and their advantages. And, as his knowledge of his surroundings grow, so will his comfort and ease, and that’s good for everyone.
