Mancat Monday: Warmth Returns

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!I must admit that all that banging noise from under the house a couple of weeks ago was well worth it.  The furnace humans were down in our crawlspace delivering a new furnace that we adopted when ours went over the Bridge.  Well, over the weekend the temperatures got down in the low 40s and the new furnace came on.  Warmth!  Oh was it nice too.  We were all toasty comfy and we were totally happy.  Sister Sascha parked herself by one of the vent thingys and was smiling big time.  I made myself comfy on the bench, and the rest of the sisters were all stretched out on the bed.  Our old furnace, R.I.P., just wasn’t doing well at all, but the new one we adopted is full of action and ready to play at a moments notice.  I think it is going to fit into it’s new home just fine.

I know we don’t need it all the time yet, but it sure is nice to know it is ready when we are.  Actually, the weather humans say we’re supposed to get temps back up in the 90s this week.  Weather sure can be weird, don’t ya think?

Okay, I’m off to check out the back yard and see what the squirrels are up to.  They seem to be awfully busy gathering up pecans from our tree.  I wonder what that means?

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Sure hope it doesn’t mean a cold winter Brian. Glad Sister Sascha is sitting there smiling. What a great picture we have of her. We are thrilled to hear that the new furnace plays well with all of you. That is terrific. Hope all of you have a great week and remember to give Dad a what if he uses his paws too much.

We sympathise Brian – we had temperatures in the 60’s yesterday and today we have mid 40’s and the wind is so strong mum says it was nearly blowing her over. As GJ says it is Arctic weather heading our way and we just wish it would head back north!
Glad to hear your furnace is working well – we may have to come over to warm our paws!

We’ve had our furnace on all ready too, it sure is nice to know it’s there and working. I bet you’re glad to have a new one. It’s no fun when it gets all cold and icky inside as well as outside!

Glad your new furnace you adopted is doing well 🙂 Enjoy the warmth! We are supposed to have warm temperature this week as well. Maybe around 80F, which is nice.
Squirrels are gathering pecans maybe because cold winter is coming soon. Or maybe they have a party planed 🙂

Glad your furnace is ready just in time, you’ll be all nice and snug! Sookie and Mr Darcy are currently growing their winter coat – I don’t know why… they spend most of their time snuggled under the radiators!!

Glad your furnace is going to keep you warm and cozy in the cold weather. It’s been in the nineties here so the heater is still off.

Hey Brian, So glad you got your new furnace before wicked winter hits. We had to replace ours last October. We do have our fireplace if the furnace would go out, but using the furnace is much easier in mild weather. We use the fireplace when it’s very cold since it heats the house so hot. We even turned on our furnace a few days ago now that it’s getting much colder here in Iowa.

Mom turned on the warm machine a couple of weeks ago but says she is refusing now until it really gets cold. What constitutes REALLY? Glad the new one works. Oh – and we got to see Precious looking out her window in the Precious-cam. Mom always checks to see if she is in camera view when we come visit!!

We certainly know whereof you speak, Brian! We got a new furnace last year, after the old one conked out in March, and we had no heat for a few weeks. We were using space heaters.

Warmth is just wonderful! There’s nothing worse than going to a cold litter box.

Hurray for a new furnace and warmth! We’ve had to have our heat on (we have a timer) because it’s definitely Ontario fall cool now. 90s F are but a distant memory. LOL.

Enjoy the toasty heat!

There’s nothing so blissful as a working heater when you need it! It’s mostly warm here, but it does get cold at night, and ours comes on.

You got the furnace just in the nick of time!

Sounds like you won’t need heat for awhile, but still it’ll be welcome in a few short weeks. And those squirrels may be nutty (nyuk nyuk nyuk) but they seem to have a sense for what they’ll need down the road.

It’s still summer weather around here so we have not used our furnace in a long time. We are happy for you all that you have a new furnace and will keep warm when cold comes your way. It sounds like you all are really enjoying the warmth. Hugs and nose kisses

We are glad the new Furnace is ready to play. It was 90 here yesterday and 56 today! Over 30 degrees difference. Only in Texas is 56 chilly!

Glad you got your furnace in time for the cold. We had unexpected Cold weather here so I is snuggling on the electric blanket the beans didn’t turn the Heat Pump on cause Mommy says it needs to be cleaned first so she doesn’t get burnt mold on her while she sleeps. Wanna come snuggle with me. ~Scylla

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz

Just in time for Fall! We got a new heater a couple of years ago, but it’s a heat pump so the registers never are butt-warmin’ warm, hahameow. That’s why Teri has pet safe heat pads on almost every chair, just for us! She said her butt is warm enough but she’s thought about stealing one of ours for her feet some days!
