    Trust a cat to find the warmest spot. We had one that loved to sleep on top of the water heater.

    We used to be owned by a very large albino Siamese. One day our VCR broke down and we took it to be fixed. The tech called me the next day and said, “Would you be able to identify this stuff that’s all over the inside of the VCR? It looks like—feathers?” Think. Think. “Could it be white cat hair?” Pause. Pause. “It could—but how?” Turns out the rotten kitty was climbing up on top of the VCR when we were out, and sleeping there, because it was warm!

    He also found the coolest spot in summer—lay on top of the point in the floor where the cold water pipe ran. Of course it was smack in the middle of the hallway!

    One time our Burmese somehow ended up stuck upside-down behind a radiator. He never went near one again after that…no matter how cold it was.

    We lost a cat, Maggie, back in the early 1970s because she liked to lay on top of our 1970 RCA color TV. It put out about 5x the radiation that a normal set would put out. She got cancer from it.

    It broke my cat’s heart when I got a flat screen TV, he used to sleep on top of my big and wide old style TV because all the hot air produced by the set came up through the air holes up there. I measured the temperature once with a thermometer, it was 100 F. (He also liked it because it was the highest point in the room and gave him a great view of what was going on.)

    My in-laws repaired and used the old hot water radiators in their house for heat. Worked great. They put blankets on top for the cats to lie on.

    My Vixen would have been right up there if we’d had a radiator. As it was, she’d schootch right up there as close to the heaters as she could.

    Her fur would singe and she complained when I pulled her away.

    I set the garage heater to blow across the cat’s basket. She really seems to like it.
