    Definitely! We make sure they are zipped up before going outside.
    My poor brother still grieves for a kitty he lost. The kitty hated the carrier, so my brother always carried him from the car to the vet and back in his arms. He was just putting the cat back in the car when a passing truck backfired. Kitty went crazy and scratched him bloody. He could not hold on and the kitty ran away into the woods. My brother stayed in the vet's parking lot for hours trying to get the cat back. He and my mother went back every day for the next 3 days, but never found the kitty.

    Very sad lesson learned.

    Oh, in case anyone is wondering about us taking the kitties out in the snow, the cheetah looking fabric thing in the stroller with Pepper is a Snuggle Safe. You heat it in the microwave and it stays warm for hours. It keeps them warm on our winter walks. I also heat one up at night for Cammie. It seems to help her arthritis quite a bit.
    Ask your vet about microchipping. ~~ It could have saved Kuhio's life. And it cost Halo hers. Consider having your cat tested for Polycystic kidney disease ~~ Rest in peace Willy

    Lisa, any chance you have a picture of that Snuggle Safe? It sounds like what I was looking for for Pjevs who lived in our yard - he's long gone, though - but in case other kitties move in to the yard and the winter is freezing cold, it would be nice to know where to get one. Fister might even like it, too.

    Randi ~ Here you go.

    We have several that we ordered from Amazon.com They are made of a hard plastic with a gel inside that you heat in the microwave. You can put it under a towel or blanket for your cats/dogs to lie on or buy one of the covers they make. Ours won't lie on the hard plastic without a cover -- maybe because it's too hot at first.



    Read the directions carefully as you may have a more powerful microwave. We heat ours for 5 minutes and it stays warm all night.

    Thank you, Lisa! I have only seen one other, that was one John's niece had brought one winter, she used to put under the sheets. It was square and thinner, and I believe she heated it for two minutes. It kept warm for a couple of hours.

    I'll have a closer look at the link later - thanks again!
