Daily Fluff: Chicago cat gets creative to stay warm

Chicago Cat Gets Creative to Stay Warm
Ernie refuses to wear kitten mittens, so this is her solution.

From our friends at

A Chicago-area cat named Ernie has had to rely on extreme measures to stay warm. With temperatures in the single digits for weeks, the kitty’s fur coat just wasn’t enough to beat the chill.

"Ernie has been living in Chicago all her life, so you’d think she’d be used to the cold," said Joshua Garrett, a friend of Ernie’s. "But once that Polar Vortex slid down into the U.S. and the temps fell below zero, she was walking around the house whining about the cold, non-stop."

Garrett suggested kitten mittens for Ernie, but she refused.

"So instead of wearing clothes like a normal person, she hugs the radiator all day," he said. "Whatever. Cats are weird."

Horrible human left cat to die in polar vortex, but Craigslist saved it
There's a scene in the new Coen brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis where our frumpy folk hero Llewyn finds himself stranded on the side of a highway with his guitar and cat. Certain he won’t be able to hitch a ride if he brings along his fuzzy, marmalade companion, Davis makes a tough call: He leaves the cat behind to face an uncertain, wintery doom in a broken-down car with a heroin-addled jazz aficionado.
