Another idea (if there is ever a power outage, or you want to cuddle with them and it's cold) is a heater pad. Like a homemade one. You put rice in a towel and sew it up or tie it up, and put it in a microwave for a minute. It usually stays warm for 20-30 minutes at a time.
Love this idea, sincerely (very creative & easy), but --- if there's a power outage, there goes the microwave!
Just teasing you, Gustafson! It's also a great idea if you suddenly have an ill keet but no heating pads to put next to/under the cage.
Kksuns, your link to the ceramic heater is the answer to my prayers, so to speak -- it's affordable, simple, non-fume-producing, and my local Home Depot supposedly has them in stock! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You may very well have saved us hundreds of dollars in heating bills this coming winter!
I've held off on the space heater idea since we got Pudgie because, back in the day, they were scary, fume-emitting, floor-melting, expensive, risky, smelly, and had bad reputations for being unreliable, at best, and dangerous, at worst.
I keep hearing them twitter and cheap and scuffle around ... Get awful confused when I look up and they aren't across the room, they're practically in my bed lol.
LOL! They'll probably take some time to get used to the new spot, too. I LOVE your phrase "twitter and cheep and scuffle around" -- that describes it so well! (Then there's the occasional "ding" or "rasp" when they bump into bells or shredder toys...)
