Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
You may have already known that our cat Beau loves tucking himself in from the many photos we have of him on Instagram or my passing mentions on the blog. While it’s adorable every time Beau does it, it seems Kalista has taken a few notes and has started tucking herself in.
My partner is still fairly ill and while the cats spent almost a full two weeks sleeping by his side, Kalista has started to spend more time with me in bed instead. Yesterday evening she did the cutest thing on earth. She ran into the bedroom slipped under the covers and made a little cave for herself.
Whenever Kalista is in the bedroom she’s usually sleeping on the cat tree, although there have been the rare moments where she has snuggled up into me while I’m sleeping.
In general, whenever we enter a room or Kalista sees us, she usually gets up and starts following us around the apartment, but last night was so different. Kalista was just so happy being tucked in under the covers that she didn’t move even when I called her. I tried petting her and she just dug herself deeper into the covers and kept purring.
I think it’s because our apartment is currently so cold. It’s around -5°C outside making our place… fairly cold. I wish we owned a thermometer so I could tell you, but all I know is… it’s cold and our heating isn’t working properly. Even if our heating did work, we’d be too nervous to leave it on at night for Gary’s sake (as he can easily overheat and he prefers colder temperatures anyways.)
We are, however, going to have to buy ourselves a thermometer since we’ve been borrowing one every so often from my partner’s workplace (shhhh!!!) to regulate the temperature for Gary.
But in general, I think Kalista is just feeling the cold now and wanting to find places to stay warm. Welcome to your first Canadian winter Kalista! I promise it gets better and that we’ll give you lots of cuddles when you don’t find blankets to wrap yourself in!
So how about you pet parents? Do your cats tuck themselves in under your blankets?
