Wrapping Up Jimbo - Dryer Heat Is Good!


Jimbo suffers from a medical condition that causes him discomfort and pain. He is now once again on pain pills twice a day, but by accident we may have found the magic medicine to help!

He always has loved the heat from the clothes just out of the dryer and jumps on the bed when I bring them back from the laundry room so he can play in them. He thinks this great fun but sometimes I don't agree. This day I took the two pair of jeans and wrapped them around him to keep him out of the other clothes until I could fold and hang them. The result was an instant and total stop from his play and a 45 minute nap for him of absolute relaxation. The heavy denim material holds in the heat and this must have been like being folded in an electric blanket.

Jimbo is a very large cat - 17 1/2 pounds now - so he is the length of the jean fold - you can see his belly picking through in the middle and his tail and foot hanging out the end. 

He was in heaven and sleeping so soundly that he even let me rest beside him on the bed without much notice. I was very happy to see him so at ease and pain free - as you can tell from the million photos I took. :<) Now I know what helps and will be using heat as therapy from now on. 

He's my buddy, no doubt of that. :<) Thank you for visiting my blog today! We have sunshine and warm temperatures today here in this part of WI. Everything is turning green and some of the flowering trees are in bloom. I love Spring! Wishing you a happy Sunday!
