Can you tell?

It’s Yellow… The colour for today’s #bandofsketchers prompt.

Is is the heater we have on in the living room to boost the warmth. It’s usually a cat magnet but they were not playing today. We do have a large wooden cat but I have accentuated the colour of it and made it larger to increase the line of yellow that runs through the drawing.

This was done with felt pens and permanent marker pens. I wonder what colour we will get next.

Indoor and outdoor meet

Cats heat bathing. But this isn’t our indoor cats, it’s one indoor and one outdoor one. The outdoor cat has been in half an hour. He usually stays that long, then I think he gets too hot and goes and yowls by the back door, ready to go back outside. In fact that’s exactly what he’s just done. Walked to the back door and mroowl, that’s it. So I let him back out. His introduction has to be on his terms. My boy indoor cat is sniffing where he was sitting. Luckily he’s on a flea treatment so everything should be fine and as mine are inoculated means they should be safe.

My eyes

This is our new heater. On one bar! It’s being used as a lamp too….

The old oil filled radiator we had in our living room was used to supplement our central heating or used instead of it now the days are getting colder. The problem was that there was an oily residue on the base of it and on the fins. It also used 1000 Watts. I wanted to get another, less powerful oil heater, but my hubby chose this. On the positive side its only 400 Watts on full power and it seems to radiate more heat than the oil heater did.

But it’s so bright! I have to turn it away from me so my eyes aren’t burned out of their sockets (clearly not true), but it’s too bright for me.

Cat on the line!

Our outdoor cat has decided to take charge of my hubby’s railway set. Luckily there is a pond painted in the centre so he can lie on it and not do too much damage. He’s got a heater in there so he is nice and warm. He’s also started coming in for a few minutes at night. Although he did swipe a paw at my boy cat last night. He’s happy, well fed, and has lots of fun.

He’s still here..

The abandoned cat that we have been looking after is still here. There was a couple who almost took him, but decided we were too attached to him for them to take him. He still lives in the shed because we have two indoor cats who won’t get in their cat basket to be inoculated! Hence cats staring at each other through the cat flap. The outdoor cat has a box surrounded by straw to help keep him snug. But we decided to put a small electric oil heater in the shed to help keep him warm on very cold nights. He can get in and out, and because there is nothing of value in the shed we are happy to leave the door slightly ajar. Hopefully by later this year he will be rehomed x
