When I started working from home and winter approached, it was difficult to deal with the cat and her wanting lots of warmth in the form of lap time. Not going to work. Turns out the solution was an easy one. If it’s heat she wants, heat she will have. There is an extra chair in the office. We had a chair-sized heating pad. Hmmm… ¬† Easy enough to put the pad on low, put a fleecy pad on top of that, connected to a timer. The first time I put the cat on the pad, after letting it warm up for about 20 minutes, she absolutely melted onto the chair and we’ve never looked back. For the last 7 years or so she keeps me company in my office but never interferes with my work. She rarely¬†leaves her chair. I like to say we have an electric cat now.
