I had a coupon for Petco and found the perfect bed! It's even an "orthopedic" bed, which offers "superior support" and "aids in relieving pressure points." It's big enough for two maybe even three kitties, so they can enjoy a nice snuggle fest. The cover of the bed can be removed for easy washing, which is a huge improvement from the past smaller bed.
I built a wood cradle for the bed and created a wire frame to hold the fleece blanket.
Of course with that canopy on there, I won't be able to see if the bed is occupied. Once they get the hang of the covered bed, I'll may rig something similar up on the loft bed. Fleece does a good job holding the warm air in and with it being so loose, they can escape if they need to.
Along with the new heated bed and the heated loft, they also have the fully heated and insulated kitty castle, which is the space I built over the basement entry a few summers ago. (I was going to post a link to where I previously posted about the kitty castle, but I couldn't find such a post, so I must never of posted about it! Yikes, I'll rectify that this week.) The castle is a pretty large space and since it's insulated, it does a great job keeping the heat in - and when I just popped out on the back porch to see where they were, both Pierre and Oliver were cuddled up on the heating pad in the castle! Yea!! They can choose whichever warm place they desire, I just want them to be warm and comfortable.
Stay warm my precious sweet Oliver, Pierre and MK!
Meanwhile, inside the house...
Bert's getting to explore the entire house as we continue the integration process.
He seems to be enjoying the new space.
