Our cat Jazz is a little over 14 years old and in the past year or two has developed some arthritis in his lower spine. He is on pain relief and some medication that help eases the discomfort and increases his flexibility.
I have added this Snugglesafe cat “hottie”
to his treatment regime after learning about these on Leanne’s blog:
He was very suspicious of his new hottie at first
he has crept closer to it
and finally after two days he is enjoying the steady, warmth this fleece covered disc offers to him.
His humans have also discovered how useful it is on sore lower backs and strained rib cartilage when Jazz has been outside or when the daytime temperatures have been too warm for him to want to lie on it.
It is a nifty comforter.
That is so sweet, Lynley. I love the way you have tracked the whole process. Jazz is a lucky cat.
Thanks Juliet. He was very suspicious to begin with. I hope it eases his discomfort through the winter.
I am not going to tell Bentley – I think he’d want one too.
I think he would Ruth. I hope Bentley is not experiencing any arthritis.
Such a lovely series of photos. I have a snuggle safe for my dog. He doesn’t have any ailments but it is a nice way to keep him warm. Occasionally I long to steal it from him!
Jazz was rather skeptical to begin but he was gradually drawn in. We humans really like its steady heat!
Ahh glad Jazz likes the hottie. If Jazz ever needs to go to a cattery he is very welcome to come here (Only open to friends of MandaBurms)
PS Ginger and white cats are special to me – my first cat was one and it is what I’m going to get as my last cat one day too in the way future.
Thanks Leanne for the hottie information and your kind cattery offer. Jazz is a very special chap – very talkative, very socialable, very smoochy and cuddly. He is soaking up the sun right now in his banana box:-))
Indeed it is so sweet of you. I love people who loves animals.
And Jazz badly needed!
A hug from me to your cat, she is lovely!
Thanks Diana. I will certainly pass on your hug to Jazz.
