Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy

By Day Heating Company | July 2, 2018 | Comments Off on Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy

Being a cat in Oregon has its drawbacks. We’re not real fond of water (except for drinking and playing in the sink), so that whole “forty days and forty nights of rain” thing that goes on here most of the year gets old real fast – even for those of us who stare at it…

Hit Me!

By Day Heating Company | April 23, 2018 | Comments Off on Hit Me!

I was managing the analytics on my blog the other day (yeah, curiosity and the cat thing) and I stumbled upon a very interesting and impressive stat (of course, everything about me is interesting and impressive, but we’ll cover that on a future article titled “The Most Interesting Cat In The World”). Most cats never…

If It Fits, It Ships!

By Day Heating Company | May 30, 2017 | Comments Off on If It Fits, It Ships!

It happened again. The field-trip from hell. A visit to the vet. Now don’t get me wrong – I love my vet. I just want to keep the relationship profession and with a three foot minimum “no touching” zone. Poking, prodding – not a fun time. Of course, on this most recent visit, my silhouette…

The Revolving Chair

By Day Heating Company | August 31, 2016 | Comments Off on The Revolving Chair

Not long ago, I welcomed Marq to our service department. After 11 months, Marq opted to saddle up and ride into the sunset, accepting a different challenge in his life. Since then, two people have “revolved” through the dispatcher position (the second not even staying long enough to warm up my chair). After a self-sniff…

The New Guy’s In My Chair

By Day Heating Company | September 24, 2014 | Comments Off on The New Guy’s In My Chair

Change. Not my favorite thing (unless I’m finding it between the couch seat cushions), but sometimes it’s a necessary part of life. And while it is usually painful, change can often produce extremely positive results. That brings me to some recent changes in the office at Day Heating. Starting in September, Luke began transitioning from…

What’s All This Insulation Fur?

By Day Heating Company | December 17, 2013 | Comments Off on What’s All This Insulation Fur?

I know it’s been a while since I’ve imparted wisdom – they finally found my hiding spot and set me in front of the keyboard again. I almost made it an entire year without having to work for my treats! As a cat, I have extensive knowledge and experience on a wide variety of subjects.…

Alex, I’ll Take Recycling for $200

By Day Heating Company | December 20, 2012 | Comments Off on Alex, I’ll Take Recycling for $200

Recycling has been working its way into being a buzz word for the last two generations, but I want you to know that cats have been recycling for thousands of years. Nothing on the planet can recycle loose pelt hair into hair balls faster than a feline! Coming in at a close second to me…

Veteran’s Day

By Day Heating Company | November 12, 2012 | Comments Off on Veteran’s Day

Veteran. An experienced soldier or former member of the armed forces. When I hear the word, I think of an older gentleman who has seen combat (and, knowing how I can be during my doctor visits, I’m wondering if the word “veterinarian” wasn’t coined based on what I put the doctor through). All joking aside,…

I Want A Doctor That Bowls

By Day Heating Company | October 2, 2012 | Comments Off on I Want A Doctor That Bowls

I’m like most people – maybe even just like you (except I’m better looking). I hate going to the doctor. I realize that this feeling does not make me unique – on the contrary, this bandwagon is squatting under the weight (literally) of those who have hopped on. But I believe I may have a…

Your Luggage is in the Flowerbed

By Day Heating Company | October 2, 2012 | Comments Off on Your Luggage is in the Flowerbed

The Pacific Northwest has a lot to offer – ocean beaches, mountains, rivers, lakes and a climate that’s perfectly suited to maximizing the performance of a heat pump. While there are many types of heat pump units, the two most common types are ducted and ductless. Ducted heat pumps have been around for over 60…
