Recent Adorableness: Lion, Hot and Cold

It's cold! It's in the low 60s in our apartment even though the thermostat is set more than 10 degrees higher. It's a drafty old place and we need new windows and caulking. The problem is that some of the cats liked to remove the Mor-Tite rope caulking we used for years on our windows and joints. We'd find it lying around after it had been carried or dragged some distance, and we'd worry about whether any of it was eaten. So no more of that.

It's easier to be cold. And it may inspire us to find a safer solution, although that probably requires a trip to the hardware store, and we're already feeling too cold to contemplate going out.

Lion, above, has found a warm spot on the radiator cover, but he's also partially lying on a cold windowsill. He is being a true cat by having it all, being warm and cool at the same time. This is an example of a feline phenomenon I noticed when I was in college, which I called the Inful-Outful Dichotomy. I wrote about it back in 2009 when we first got Wendy and Possum.


  1. we use window plastic.. it helps a lot.

  2. so long as MOST of the cat is warm, that counts :)
