    Thank you all for the ideas! I am waiting for JMet's kitty sweater, and if she does not like that (she *is* Siamese, after all!) I'm going to try some of those other options. Plus I'm passing this thread on ...I know someone else with a 20 year old kitty that might like a little extra warmth!

    Ditto the self-reflecting pet mat from K & H and the SnuggleSafe pet disc. Good luck with the sweater!

    Did the angry Persian ever escape the sweater? My old man dog has a sweater of sorts but I don't leave him home alone in it because he can slip a foreleg inwards, trapped under the sweater, when he transitions from curled up sleeping to waking up and walking. I imagine this would be an even bigger risk in a flexible cat.

    Sigh, I knew I shouldn't have linked that site. I just ended up ordering another cat mat and some ice cleats for myself.

    Sigh.

    All my kitties have heated cat beds. They are just like heating pads but they only heat up if kitty is laying on it. I got mine at the feed store and they also carry them on Amazon.

    I was going to suggest a space blanket - the silver ones one takes on hikes in case of getting lost.

    But you guys are the kindest bunch, spoiling your kitties so.

    The one good thing about repeating your mistakes is that you know when to cringe.

    I looked at that photo and saw Regan from The Exorcist.

    JLMet...I also have a Persian I picked up off the city streets of Grand Rapids, MI...he weighed in at about 3 lbs as an adult (he was also neutered). He's been with me since 2005 (and up to 15 lbs) - and I know that stare -he gives it to me a lot when I do things like clip his butt to stop the poops from sticking. Love it!

    Will post picks of Levi (blue-point Siamese) when the sweater arrives. She's doing much better - actually eating well, jumped on the bed for her nightly scritches - NEVER rear declaw a cat...they cannot itch themselves at all. She drools all over when we have our scritch-sessions.

    Yes, I have the..."Oh, look..she'll take us home and feed us" sign over my head. Bob, my Persian, walked right up to me the moment I got out of my car, as if to say, "Well, it took you long enough!!!"
