Dr. Tibo Bat: The Sub-Zero Ice Beast

This is for those who are interested in cats.

The colder it gets, the more Dr. Tibo Bat wants to go outside to hang out.

For those who don’t know, Dr. Tibo Bat is half-Maine Coon, and half regular orange Tabby cat. He’s got super-fluff, which makes staying cool a challenge. It’s why he always sleeps on his back.

Dr. Tibo Bat, trying to stay cool.

The down-side, of course, is that opening the door allows cold air inside. The door opens, he goes out, and I will pull the door closed without latching it. There is a shower curtain in place to try and slow down the transfer of cold air.

The colder it gets, the more he wants to be outside, and he wants to stay out there for quite a while.

I have pondered the idea of getting a door with a cat flap built in. I’m looking into it out of sheer curiosity, but I doubt that it’s a possibility in today’s world.

Ah, yes…. 27F [-2.8C]… just the way I like it!

He gets brushed regularly, and this includes using a Furminator, which goes through the undercoat and pulls away any loose hair. It helps thin things out a little bit.

I have sympathy for the little guy, so he gets to go on the patio whenever he wants. So I’ll be investigating the replacement door with a built-in cat flap, in the event that it becomes an actual reality that I can tackle.

At the very least, he will be going to the groomers in the Spring, so that he won’t get so hot. That might be a better investment.

I’ve only been out here for an hour, and it has already warmed up to 30F [-1.1C]. What gives?
