Saving the Environment Saturday


Here I am helping to sort the hot water loads.

Hey there all! Here is one of the ways we help save the environment. We do all our hot laundry on the same day back to back. We start with the cold water washes and hang those to dry (so not to waste the energy of the dryer) and then the hot water washes.

We do those back to back at the end of the laundry day so the hot water is already heated and stayes heated. It also keeps the hot water hot when we run the dishwasher and my beans take their showers. This way the water heater only has to heat up once, saving energy.

Here I am telling mommy she should start with those whites. The socks smell nasty!



UPDATE: I'm was sneezing on Thursday and got pukey last night and overnight. I'm still behaving normally so the VET thinks the sneezing is because of all the stuff blown in on Sunday (allergies are going nuts around here now) and the tummy upset from stress.

He wants my beans to watch me closely but the worst part it he told them to TAKE MY FOODS AWAY!! That is right kitties, no food for me ALL DAY to give my tummy a chance to "settle". I think I'll starve. sob. Please cross paws this suffering is not for nothing and I don't pukey any more.

That is very good of you Mr. Hendrix. Mom only does laundry about every 2 weeks, and then she only has about 3 or 4 loads, so she does it all on the same day too.

Evie/VampyVictor said...

That is a lot of washing to sort through.
Great idea!! :)

GRRRETA said...

Great idea. I don't think we would have such self control around all those interesting piles of clothes. We would most likely nap on the job.

Black Cat said...

That's a good idea! I hang my washing up to dry too, rather than use the dryer.

You were a good-looking pirate. Johnny Depp eat your heart out!

I'm sorry you had the hurricane. All these hurricanes are horrid with a capital O! xxx

Very responsible way to help the environment! We love laundry. We love to lie on it. Especially clean laundry, cause we have to re-fur-bish it.

Oh poor boy how terrible to stay without food. My cats all cross the paws so that your tummy gets better and you can eat again !
You are indeed a nice "green" boy helping with the laundry !

Oh dear, Mr. Hendrix - I can't think of anything worse than having food taken away! My paws are so crossed!

P.S. That's a good way to help the environment ...

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a good idea for energy saving. Mum likes to hang her washing outdoors, but hasn't been able to much this year because it has rained most of the time. We hope your nose and tummy are soon better. You must be starving with no food. Do you want us to sneak some over for you?

The Cat Realm said...

Thank you so much for accepting the Dare! What a smart way to do this, we are impressed! And you are doing such a good job - now we just hope that you will get better REAL soon - no food is NO FUN!!!!!!
We keep our paws crossed!

Oh no! I'm so sorry you have to starve today. I hope that will help you not puke again and your tummy will feel better. Purrs.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Maybe it was the stinky socks giving you sick-ups. We hope you are OK very soon!
