My cat is a connoisseur of all things climate control.
- I found him as a stray shivering on my porch one winter night, and when I say that he acclimated to the comfort of an HVAC unit quite quickly I mean it! For the rest of that first winter, his favorite spot was of course right next to the air vents where the warm air was coursing out of.
I eventually bought him a little bed and set it up right next to the living room air vent. When it was particularly cold out, he would make a point of either sprinting across the cold floor to get to his warm bed by the air vent or playing his own version of “the floor is lava,” by jumping from furniture piece to furniture piece to land in his bed! His love affair with climate control did not end with the winter time. I only have central heating because our summers are mild, but those few days where the afternoon heat is pretty intense, he likes to stay as close to the window air conditioner units as possible. I got him a multi-tiered carpeted platform for him to be able to sleep right in front of the window air conditioner. I’m not even as obsessed with climate control as my own cat is. I would probably be able to live with even less heating or cooling, so I maintain what I have to keep him comfortable just as sure as it is keeping me comfortable. I love my cat that much!
