Heater Cats

A cat is a feeling of love wrapped in soft fur.

- Mordecai Siegal, author The Cornell Book of Cats

The name "heater cat" derives from a sketch from Bertha's Kitty Boutique as mentioned on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion". A heater cat is a Big Warm cat, suitable for Minnesota winters. Buy a big coat with four pockets sewn into the inside of the front, then pop a heater cat into each pocket... At night, they keep you warm in bed. Heater cats are bed warmers, lap warmers, and life warmers.

This house is owned and operated solely for the comfort and convenience of the cats.

A Heater Cat by any other name...
would purr as sweet

We neither breed, sell, nor show cats, but we're quite fond of our feline family which consists primarily of Maine Coons and Maine Coon wannabes.. We think the Maine Coon is one of the breeds that typifies the perfect Heater Cat.
