I’m out of extension cords.
Here’s Dash enjoying fresh, clean, room-temperature water outside in sub-zero weather thanks to the magic of my outdoor outlets. There’s another heated water dish behind him with a bowl of wet food kept warm inside. You can see the electric cord running out of his cat house, connected to a heating pad that the cats can lay on. I’ve got two other cat houses also with heating pads plugged in. I TNR’d Dash in 2007 and this is his first winter with warming pads. He seems to be thoroughly enjoying it and stays in my yard a lot longer now. The cats don’t even touch the electric cords. I’m glad I finally upgraded to electricity, but it was time because the outdoor cats here are losing a lot of shelter in my area. There’s construction being done for a new park and lots of vacant homes are being torn down.
I’m thinking I should wrap holiday lights around this set-up and maybe even add a Nativity scene.
