Keeping Toby warm in winter?
I dont know what its like in the USA or Canada but the price of gas (the sort you heat your homes with, not the stuff you put in the car) has risen very steeply over the last year over here and theres just been an announcement that British Gas is going to increase prices by another massive 35% (effective immediately). No doubt other energy suppliers, including mine, will follow suit shortly (they always do).
Last winter, I put on my heating for about an hour in the morning and an hour at lunchtime to keep Toby warm when I was at work. With the prices being as they are (and other costs going though the roof - food springs to mind here) I don't think I can do that for him this winter but am worried about him getting cold.
Does anyone know of blankets, cat beds etc that might keep him warm? Its complicated somewhat by the fact Toby is allergic to dustmites so all soft furnishings have to be washable at high temperatures.
