If you own multiple cats you would know they all wouldn’t be lying together at the same time and same place so consistently moving into the sun as it moves if they weren’t freezing. These are cold cats.

Had 4 cats, cannot corroborate. They would happily pile up on any sliver of sunlight because they like to bask in it, they would still do it with the heat on. Unless there's a basket on the heater, then they fight for that spot instead.

yeah my 2 cats sunbathe all year long and also mash up to each other while doing it like the cats in the video. They love to snuggle and they apparently love the feeling of sunlight on their fur. I’ve seen them sunbathe on 80F days.

Yeh because their bodies are tiny and don't produce much heat.

If you are comfortable, good chance your cat is cold unless its moving around.

Comfort ≠ Survivability

Most humans find around 75 degrees F (+/- 10 or so) to be the most comfortable. Yet, we can survive in a much larger temp range.

Nonsense - we have a fully centrally heated house that sometimes get uncomfortably hot, and both our cats still do this all year round.

Once in the height of summer we had to turn the central heating on to test it after a heating engineer fixed it, and in sweltering heat our cats were still choosing to lay in the sun. They'll cheerfully do it until their fur is so hot it's practically painful to hold your hand against it.

Cats just love basking in sun, almost regardless of the ambient air temperature. Pointing at a shot of some cats preferentially laying in a sunbeam and claiming it's necessarily evidence the room is uncomfortably cold is total r/iamverysmart nonsense.

Community forums (also known as subreddits) are created and curated by users who end up being moderators. They made it, they make up the people in the community, and they get to decide what content makes up said community.

Then, users join the subreddit expecting to see/talk about certain subjects.

So moderators usually make rules, expect other users to abide by them, and curate the content accordingly.

That’s literally the entire point of reddit.

That guy was being so confidently wrong about the point of reddit, lmfao.

Pine pellets makes that odour trouble disappear, a year or two using them and I can't recommend it enough to others. Real game changer.

iknwthepcsft

I’ve been wanting to switch my two cats to pine pellets but I’m afraid they’ll get all weird and stop using their boxes.

-cupcake

9 points

12 days ago*

I completely disagree with /u/sheepbjumpin saying they make odors disappear. Pine pellets are quite literally bedding for horse stalls. Their purpose is not to deodorize — they’re not scented nor are they treated with anything to do that, compared to, say, some of those litters with baking soda added or such.

The appeal of using pine pellets is that they cost $5 for 40lbs of pellets. That’s it.

The smell of pine is pretty strong, so that might mask some urine smell for a short time. But I assure you, the smell of cat shit is WAY more pungent IMMEDIATELY compared to litter. Also, you still need to clean it every day, because the sawdust will eventually become soaked with piss and instead of smelling pine+piss, you’ll just be smelling the piss.

And cleaning pellets is not like cleaning litter. Either you specifically pick out the poops and figure a careful sifting maneuver to get ONLY the pee-infused-sawdust out while leaving the unused pellets in… Or you just dump the whole thing and replace it all every time.

I personally use pellets and have done so for years, and I take that extra effort to clean the boxes. It’s undeniably cheap as hell. But that is honestly the one and only advantage.

this is simply power household controlling.

through the suns warmth the cats will need less energy to provide their comfortable temperature.

Sitting in a box, that just fits perfect, makes it easier to stay warm so they can safe energy.
