If you have a television ‘set top box’ of some sort such as, in the UK, a Sky satellite receiver, you will notice that it emits quite a lot of heat on standby and most people leave these sorts of devices on standby out of convenience. You can turn them off to save a small amount of money annually. There are other TV devices that give off heat. I noticed that my cat liked to lie on the Sky receiver, and he loves his new bed with a roof over his head and a smart foam mattress that moulds to his shape for extra comfort.
I decided to put two and two together and make four, a heated bed. As the heat from the device normally enters the room and is dispersed, it is effectively wasted. It heats the room imperceptible but to all intents and purposes the heat from this machine is wasted. Why waste heat when the heating bills in the UK have skyrocketed by a factor of four. The cost of energy – gas and electricity – has soared thanks to Putin. It is causing real hardship together with inflation which will shortly force mortgage interest payments to unsustainable highs for millions.

I’d expect nearly all domestic cats to prefer sleeping in a bed like this with protection above them. It is all about reassurances. I believe that cat caregivers can do a lot to reassure their cat which leads to greater contentment. And it is out beholden duty to make our darling cats as content as possible 😊😉✔️!
