This made me chuckle-
Too true! My Mum's cat was most distressed that the "brightly coloured heater was too thin to lie on".
That's why we still have our old style tube TV in the living room and the big set is in the TV room which is off limits to the cats. Too many wires to be tempted by.
That's not really why we have the old one in the Living Room, but the cats do like it.
