Cats love nothing more than being warm and cozy. You might see your kitty draped over the back of a chair near the fireplace, or sprawled across a sunny spot on the floor. Outdoor cats might jump on top of the hoods of cars that have recently been running. Sometimes, their means of finding warmth can become quite creative and amusing. Here are a few photos of some of the more interesting ways that cats get warm.
That low-wattage bulb in your lamp might seem barely bright enough to illuminate your desk, let alone provide heat. But some cats find it offers just enough warmth to make them feel cozy. This cat is not only soaking in the warmth of the light; it also appears to have found its resting spot for the evening. Who knew lamps came with pillows?
If you want a space by the heater, then you’re going to have to elbow your way in, as these cats have settled themselves into front-row seats. But really, who’s going to ask them to move?
Oh, You Like Coffee, Too?
Coffee might help you wake up and start your day off strong, but you probably never thought of your coffeemaker as a warm place for your cat to settle down and get comfy. At least in this situation, you can combine your morning java with a dash of cuteness.
There’s A Kitty In My Boot!
You know how cats love to cozy themselves into confined spaces? Well, boots apparently serve as an ideal place for little kitties to crawl in and snuggle. This little feline is clearly in heaven.
Dare Me To Move
This cat has found the perfect place — and the perfect position — for soaking in warmth. He doesn’t look like he’ll be going anywhere anytime soon.
A Fire Is Always Nice
Both humans and cats enjoy a nice, crackling fire, especially when they’re cuddled up with a tasty beverage like warm milk. Add in a few candles, and the mood is set for some purrfect romance.
Don’t Hog All The Heat
This space heater is just the right size for all the kitties in the household. They’re lined up like Russian nesting dolls; they know exactly where the warmth is.
Can You Be Too Comfortable?
If finding comfort were a contest, this feline might very well be champion of the world. Look at this guy. The adorable cat has a roaring fire behind him as he dozes away in dreamland.
Radiators Are The Best
These kittens are just the right size for slipping in between the spaces of their household radiator to get nice and cozy. Being hairless likely makes the cold especially chilly — and it probably makes that warm, radiating heat even more glorious.
The More the Merrier
When all else fails, some good old-fashioned body warmth seems to do the trick. These cats appear to have figured this out as they try to stay warm. Ever see five kitties pack together in a smaller area?
While these cats are funny and cute, keeping your cat warm is important to its overall health and livelihood. If your cat is seeking warmth, make sure it’s doing so in ways that do not put it in danger, such as seeking warm shelter in dryers or on top of stoves. A warm kitty is a happy kitty, and a happy cat helps make a happy home.
