MrHeater is on right now in daDen. When it's on, my lap is empty. Thnarly's bed is to the right of it and she is ensconced there. This halogen heater's 'bout ten years old and we love it.
I 'gifted' one to myHelper who has daKittyOrphanage of 'bout 22 critters. She says it's a hoot when she puts theHeater on in her livingroom and the kitties jostle for position around it. MisterBlack loves it so much, he rolls all around the floor in front of it, he's so ecstatic.
I use to have a dog that loved the gas fire, he would get so close his coat started to singe and smoke. When you shouted to him to move he would just turn his head with his tongue hanging and tail wagging, it looked like he was laughing!
