Heated pad. Lottie’s heated pad. Scooter likes it too. He looks as though he is asleep, but she knows he is fully aware of her menacing presence.

She may be six now, but she’s still the naughtiest kitten ever.

Note: There are clean water bowls available to the cats and the dog; Millie just likes a challenge.
