How We Stay Warm

This is how Harley and I are staying warm during the recent super-cold weather. Normally I refuse to go into my heated cat cup. But my Mommeh put my heated bed on the counter, next to where she works on the computer and I like it! See the electrical cord? Then, my favorite blanket goes on top to keep all the heat in! Harley wanted to go in the cup, too, but he is too big. So he just sits on the blankie.
And now, Harley and I would like to share a story about some very special cats who could use some help. This is Lenox. He is blind, but he doesn't even realize he is different!
This is his brother, Diamond. Diamond has only one good eye, and he acts as Lenox's seeing-eye cat.
Here is what I learned about these adorable cats from Your Daily Cute:

Both of these sweet babies were adopted as kittens and had the best daddy in the world. He loved them dearly and they adjusted better than anyone could have hoped. But then their daddy lost his job and as a last resort had to move back in with his parents in New York. His mom absolutely refused to take the cats in. He was crushed!!

Luckily, though, the shelter they were adopted from (Animal Aid ) offered to take them back in and care for them. He reluctantly took them back and they are in a foster home now -- and have once again adjusted amazingly! They really are quite a pair.

So now Lenox and Diamond are in search of a forever home again. A real forever home. They must go together as they are used to having each other to depend on. Neither one knows they are missing anything, and together they are the dynamic duo!

These babies are too special to not have a mommy and daddy to shower them with love and attention. They need a real home, where they can live the life they deserve. Let's get together and find them one!

If you or anyone you know might be able to give them a loving home, please email Dorian at dorian(at)yourdailycute(dot)com, or tweet Your Daily Cute, or Facebook Your Daily Cute or contact their friend at Animal Aid at LeeSparkman(at)aol(dot)com or call Lee at 754-366 8072. Animal Aid (and Lenox and Diamond!) is located in South Florida.

You can also see more photos and read a lot more about these special kitties at Your Daily Cute. Good luck Lenox and Diamond!

86 Notes for Daisy:

Huffle Mawson said...

Every cat has a heated bed except me. This is Not Fair. You two look cute on the bench though :)

Poppy Q said...

That looks like a warm and cosy cave Miss D, just right for a little lady like you. Maybe your mom can get a heating pad for Harley to lie on?

Smooches

Gracie said...

That looks very cozy, Daisy! I do feel a little bit badly for Harley, but he seems OK with it!

It is very cold here, too. I can not wait to see how wonderful summer and warmth is!

Ann said...

I'd like to have one of those for myself Daisy, looks comfy

Christine said...

Maybe Harley should get a Snuggie. I saw in the store that they make them for D-O-G-S, maybe a small D-O-G one might fit Harley? They do not make Snuggies for cats, and you, Daisy, would be too small for a D-O-G one. But you have your heated cat cup, anyway.

I heard that it has not been this cold in Florida in 26 years, long before you and Harley were even borned! So this cold is new to you. Try to stay warm!

Kathy said...

Aw, Daisy. You look so cozy in your warm bed. You are a lucky girl to have one that heats up. Harley looks like a Guard Cat. What a good boy!

gemmak said...

Ooooo, that looks so lovely and cosy in this coldness! :)

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

You look very cozy!

the casbah kitten said...

You DO look very warm and cozy there Miss Daisy! Too bad Harley doesn't fit in there with you. We don't have a heated bed but I sure would like one.
That story about Diamond and Lennox made Momma almost cry. We're going to purr our best for them to get a wonderful forever home!!

The Island Cats said...

That's a great spot you got there, Daisy...almost like a cave with the blankie on top!

We hope those sweet kitties can find a fureverhome!

The Paw Relations said...

That looks like a very warm and cosy bed Daisy. Nice of you to share your blanket with Harley.

We're praying and purring that Lenox and Diamond find their special forever home soon!

whiteberry said...

I wish I could take them. I love cat, whether they're normal or not. But I lived in Malaysia. BTW, my hometown was named Kuching, which means Cat in Malay. We all here love cats, in fact you can find them almost anywhere in my hometown. Felt sorry for Lenox and Diamond...

Pablo said...

Huffle, I don't have a heated bed either...

Forever Foster said...

Mum's have the best ideas, don't they:) Stay snug, Miss. D.

Eric and Flynn said...

We just went to YDC and read all about those kitties. We are purring hard that they get a loving forever home together very soon.
Daisy, your heated cat cup looks very cosy with the blankie over it. You are lucky Eric doesn't live with you because he wouldn't worry about it being too small for him, he would shoe horn himself in somehow.
Flynn

The Creek Cats said...

What a pawsome way to stay warm! You look so cute in your heated cup, Daisy. Maggie May lays on a heating pad nearly all day. Maybe we should look into getting her a heated cup instead!

Marg said...

Daisy you do look so very warm in your heated bed. And Harley is being very polite (I think) to let you have the cave. Glad he has part of the blanky.
I am so glad that Mommeh put those two wonderful kitties on here that need a home. We sure hope they find a home.

Hansel said...

you guys look so cute next to each other by the heated cup! tesla would whap hansel in the face if he tried that.

Project Savior said...

I'm glad you two have a nice warm place to stay, I've got several stray cats that have moved into my backyard and here's what I came up with to keep them warm.
purrfect home

JD at I Do Things said...

Thank you for sharing the story of Lenox and Diamond. They look so sweet! I hope they find a Forever Home soon. I love them!

And I love your heated cat cup! You both look very happy to have such a nice warm place to hang out.

Freya's Staff said...

I'd be happy to send you a kitten that will chase you round and keep you warm that way?

Sweet Praline said...

You look so cute all snuggled up in your heated bed, Daisy. I hope the kitties find a good forever home.

Furkidsmom said...

That bed looks pawsome! Your Mommeh takes such good care of you.


We hope that Lenox and Diamond find a forever home soon...they seem to be a pawsome duo.

SharonL said...

Oh, Daisy, how I wish I could take in those two special kitties! We already have 4 that are part of our family, so we really don't have room for more. My prayer is that they will find their forever home very soon. (p.s. Daisy, you look very cozy in your warm bed! Harley looks warm, too!)

Simba said...

That is really very sad that those kitties couldn't go to New York with their daddy. What a shame his mother was not more compassionate for him and the cats. I hope they fid a good forever home in Florida.

Split Rock Ranch said...

Stay warm and we're hoping the weather warms up again soon. I'm also praying that somebody very special gives a furever home to Lenox and Diamond.

Maureen said...

Oh I wish I could take in EVERY cat that needs a forever home! I wish them well and hope they get a wonderful new owner that they deserve who will spoil them!

Daisy, I love your heated bed! I guess this weather is backwards; we are getting unseasonably WARM weather up here!

Your Daily Cute said...

Your heated bed looks super cozy! I want one for myself. :)

Thank you so much for putting Lenox and Diamond's story. I really hope they find a forever home soon -- they are so cute and sweet!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh my gosh what a sad story for those kitties, but they are very lucky to have a foster home to live in for now. I hope that they can find a wonderful forever home very soon!

And we think you are very smart to go in the heated bed right now, but it is too bad for Harley he doesn't fit!

Milo and Alfie said...

Oh we so hope that Lenox and Diamond get a happy ending. They so deserve a forever home. What a pity they can't go back to their loving dad when he gets a new job.

Busby and Raymond said...

Daisy, are you SURE Harley won't fit in that heated cup bed?

We hope that Diamond and Lennox find a forever home. We will call our human Uncle in Florida. He has four cats, but he may know someone who can help.

Angus Mhor said...

It's very important to stay warm, Miss Daisy. I'm glad you are not falling down onto the ground like those lizards I've read about!

I'll be purrin' and hopin' that those two fellas find the bestest forever home in the world!

The Whiskeratti said...

Bonnie Story said...

Daisy that's wonderful to help those two sweet kitties. And you are adorable in your Hot Tub!! Isn't that what it is? Does your brother take a dip in the kitty Hot Tub too? Happy tubbing!!!

Sparkle said...

I'm reading Homer's Odyssey right now to review on my blog, so I am just now finding out how amazing blind kitties are! Unless she had an allergy that would kill her, I think their human's mother is heartless for refusing to take them in. I'm sending lots of hopeful purrs that they find a home ASAP!

Hoshi said...

That looks very cozy : )
I hope your friend kitties will find their forever home soon... I know they will, because they are so cute!

Junior and Orion said...

We will purr for Lenox and Diamond to get a great furever home quickly!

Pricilla said...

I think that you and Harley are very, erm....well cared for. I didn't want to say spoiled.

It is very sad about the kitties. I wish I lived closer.

Brian said...

loki said...

Daisy, you're lucky, I don't have a heated bed like you. It's so sad for the kitties and the man who lost his job. Sadly there are too many without jobs.

Keep Warm!

It is good that you can sit in your cup near your mom and snoopervise her so she does not get distracted and start doing weird things like vacuum or dusting.

Happy bonkiebonkies to both of you.

Forty Paws said...

Oh goodness! If we lived in South Florida, we might have to adopt those 2 precious poodins!

We have 2 heated cat cups from when Bow was aging and needed them. Now Reno sleeps in one.

Luf, Us

P.S. We think that Harley could probably fit in it if you weren't inside it already Daisy!

Benny and Lily said...

Oh poor babies....Maybe I want to be a kitty to get a heated bed,hmmmm
Benny & Lily

Your heated bed looks wonderful Daisy and it's nice of you to share your blanket with your brother.

The Kitty Krew said...

You kitties sure do look warm and cozy! We don't normally need heated beds, but we're considering asking The Mommy for one anyway.... MOL

We hope Lenox and Diamond find a great furever home, that's really sad about their dad's mom not letting them come. :(

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Pee Ess: We hope that those two special kitties find the special family that they deserve.

Pee Ess Ess: What has happened to Tom the Office Cat? He seems to have disappeared.

catsynth said...

Even when it gets cold here, it doesn't really get *that* cold. Stay warm, and we hope the cold spell is over soon.

That is so sad about those two cats and their dad. We really wish they weren't separated like that :(

Marilyn said...

Hey, my bed is heated too! Love my heated human bed. I think your cup would be too small for me.

I hope the kitties find homes soon. I wish I could take them but since I can't I will spread the word.
