Our kitty is definitely a heat lover. In the winter I affectionately refer to her as my little fur lap robe. At this time of year, August, I am saying OMG I do not need this hot, fury creature in my lap...but then she is sweet so I don't push her away. She loves to sleep directly on the heat vent in the floor in the winter.

Our old cat seeks out the sun rays in the south facing winter windows but also likes to stay outside in the 100 degree Texas heat in the summer. Seems like that fur coat would interfere with her comfort.

I have two cats and they are a bit strange... yes, they do seek heat... but not always...

They will sit in the window to get the morning and early afternoon sun... one is also a lap cat and will sleep on your lap... you will have to move her if you want to get up... I have the upstairs at 85 degrees right now since the kids are visiting their grandma... and they will go up there at times...

But, one that does get the sun also will lay in a tub to cool off... also, he will lay in front of our biggest air return that is at ground level... a nice cool breeze going by when the AC is running...

The other will splay out on our tile floor, both front and rear legs stretched to get as much body on the tile as possible... and it is not heated, but cool...

So I am a sometimes....

Our cats really enjoy this: : Milliard Pet Bed Warmer, 23 x 12" : Dog Bed Warmer

I set it up on my desk off to the side of the computer and it keeps them from trying to sleep on the keyboard.

I got it for them in the winter, but they still use it in the summertime. They really love to be warm.

My 5 month old pup lays in front of the AC vent, no matter which room she is in. And she will put her belly on a cold tile floor instead of a soft bed most days. I suspect she is going to LOVE snow this winter.

All of our kitties (now gone to kitty heaven) were heat seekers. They especially appreciated it when we put electric sheets on the bed. It was amazing how quickly we adapted to having a kitty curled up between our legs as we slept. We learned to turn over gently - though one time, I more or less catapulted one of the critters out of the bed - he made the mistake of sleeping on top. His litter mate always burrowed under (and slept with DW). Fun times - good memories.

Had to post this....

So, tonight I came home and DW was doing laundry.... one cat was laying on top of the dryer.... nice and warm on top...

Later, we had our dinner and when DW was cleaning up she yelled for me to come.... she had emptied the dryer and had left the door open... yep, cat jumped inside the dryer... after a couple of hours it had cooled down and she was just jumping out....
