Electric Blanket Dreams

Posted on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Dave!Last year I was young and foolish and unaware of how expensive home heating was. I turned the thermostat on come October and never looked back.

Until the electric bills started rolling in.

Once I realized how insanely expensive it is to turn the heat on, I tried to be much smarter about it. Having a "smart thermostat" helped, because I could program it to adapt to my schedule and not be wasting energy when I wasn't home. Not that I could just turn the heat off completely... because I've got cats. Sure they have fur coats, but I don't want the poor things freezing.

This year I decided to use my electric blanket so I'm not spending a ton of money heating my home at night, and today was the day it got turned on.

Jenny had absolutely no idea what to make of it.

She walked around poking it and sniffing it... then flopping down on it because it was oh so warm! For the longest time she just kinda laid there in disbelief at what she was experiencing...

Once she understood that it was indeed toasty heat eminating from the blanket, and not just her imagination, much rolling around and purring ensued...

Now she's completely passed out from the joy of it all...

Guess I'm going to have company at night now.
